Dickson quits MUSIGA post

The controversial Central Regional Chairman of the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) George William Dickson has officially resigned his position but says he continues to be a member of the Union.

Mr. Dickson’s resignation comes as an anti-climax because in recent times he has been a pivot of the Mark Okraku Mantey-led attacks on MUSIGA President Bice ‘Obour’ Kuffour and his team of Executive members.

Dickon however explained that the decision to resign is the best for him and his family.

“How issues are unfolding, the best option for me and my family is that I resign.

I have been a member of MUSIGA for 32 years and we pay GHC104 (GHC50 for registration and GHC54 for welfare) every year.

I have paid that of last year and I’m about to pay for this year.

If I pay all these monies and I don’t see any profit it brings or I ask questions and it will bring problems and other things then I think it is best that I resign,” Dickson said.

Dickson and Okraku Mantey have publicly called on Obour to render accounts of MUSIGA’s recently held Ghana Music Week (GMW) and although the Union on Thursday released a statement to explain the expenditure and sponsorship package of the GMW, the critics continue to wage their war unabated and raise other issues.
“There is a statement that is out and even the National Executive Council (NEC) members do not know anything about it.

I received a message that Wednesday we should come to Accra and have a Press Conference about the statement.

Now that the report is already out, if you go there and you don’t understand anything, what do you say?”

Dickson questioned in a phone interview on Peace FM’s Entertainment Review Show.

Meanwhile, sources close to George William Dickson say he resigned as the Central Regional Chairman of MUSIGA mainly because he wants to sue the Obour led administration on the finances of the GMW.
