He told show host, Abrantepa that the delay is an attempt by incumbent Obour to gain undue advantage over the other aspirants. Appietus who was at the MUSIGA office in Accra at the time of the interview to pick the list stated that he has not been affected by the delay as he focused on campaigning to some delegates he knew across the country.
Meanwhile, Ahuma Bosco Ocansey, Director of Special Projects and Communications of MUSIGA has explained that per the roadmap, the list of delegates is supposed to be released after a meeting with all the aspirants on Monday, October 12, 2015. He advised aspirants not to create undue tension but follow the rules and seek clarification on any issue from the union.
About 150 delegates will converge at the Eastern Regional capital, Koforidua on October 29, 2015 to elect executives who will steer the affairs of the union.
The candidates are Obour, the incumbent, Gyedu-Blay Ambulley and Appietus. Daasebre Dwamena who initially showed interest pulled out of the competition.
While Obour has said that he deserves a second term because his administration has been able to chalk a number of successes, Ambulley and Appietus claim he is not worthy of a re-election.
