Obour: Ambolley’s anger with me will soon wane

Re-elected President of the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) Bice Osei Kuffuor (Obour), says his resolve to instill unity in the Union will not wane despite attacks on his person by some members.

Obour was reacting to a recent comment by failed union President hopeful, Gyedu Blay Ambuley that Obour masterminded fraudulent elections that earned his re-election.

Gyedu Blay Ambolley, a highlife legend, alleged recently that the October 31 election was not free and fair.

Referring to Obour, Ambolley said he would not work with “somebody who acquires a position by crooked means.”

However, speaking Thursday at an event put together by Kasapreko Company Limited to mark a successful MUSIGA elections, Obour said although Ambolley’s comments impede efforts at cohesion, he is unperturbed.

“As a leader, you must be prepared to hear a lot of these comments because it is a test of your anger and your patience as well. As a leader I hear these comments but God has given me a big heart to hear these comments,” he said.

He said what Gyedu Blay Ambolley needs is time to get over his elections defeat.

“For Ambolley it will take a while. But much of the pain will go down because when you lose a heavy election you must find reasons to give for your defeat. The elections was free and fair, the gap was huge,” Obour said.

Obour secured 88 out of the 133 votes cast to retain him as President of MUSIGA during elections held at Koforidua, the Eastern Region capital.

Sound engineer Appietus also obtained 18 votes, while Gyedu Blay Ambolley obtained 22 votes of the total valid votes cast.
