Speaking on Daybreak Hitz on Hitz FM, Appietus who was the first to pick up a nomination form to contest the presidency of MUSIGA questioned why the union would take GHc3,000 from candidates as filing fee knowing too well that there was no money to run the election.
“So what are they trying to tell me, I mean they are not ready to do an election but they are ready to take money for nominations or what is going on?... They are doing everything to try and discourage me from pursuing the course but it’s funny. If they want to say that they don’t have money to conduct the elections, I will sue them. They shouldn’t even try it, they should use some other strategy,” he said.
