Musician and former President of the Musicians’ Union of Ghana (MUSIGA), Bice Osei Kuffuor alias Obour has lost the parliamentary primaries of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Asante Akyem South Constituency as campaigns against him by his colleague musicians who had accused him of incompetence while he was MUSIGA president seem to have convinced delegates.
Two influential musicians Criss Waddle and D-Black had advised the delegates to reject Obour because he had failed to deliver during his tenure as president of MUSIGA.
The musicians had taken to social media to allege that Obour was undeserving to be elected as a parliamentary candidate; messages which went viral.
But Obuor rejected the accusations, saying that he had performed creditably as leader of the musicians in Ghana.
From the results of the election, it is clear the delegates disagreed with him by failing to choose him but retaining the incumbent Member of Parliament Hon. Kwaku Asante Boateng as the NPP’s candidate.
Obour came second out of six others as he obtained 296 while the winning candidate polled 360 votes to retain the slot.
