Veteran musician Gyedu Blay Ambolley has made his intentions clear that he wants the interim board of the Ghana Music Rights Organisation (GHAMRO) thrown out of office.
According to Ambolley, the period allocated to the interim board –made up of Enoch Agyepong, Nana Aboagye Dacosta and Kwame Nsiah Apau, also known as Okyeame Kwame- by the court had elapsed, therefore he saw no reason why they were still in office.
Ambolley, together with Ekow Micah and C.K. Morrison among others, led a team of right owners to close down the GHAMRO offices but were disallowed by the police.
“We wanted to close down the office because the time that was allocated to the interim board has elapsed.
If the administration’s time is up why are they still there,” he quizzed on Peace FM’s Entertainment Review.
Last year, a Human Rights Court setup the interim board to operate for six months, with the task of receiving, managing royalties on behalf of the right owners and seeing to the appointment of a permanent board for GHAMRO.
However checks by this paper confirmed that though the six months allocated to the board had elapsed, the court had extended their term of office and instructed that the interim board continue to operate till they have completed the tasked they were instructed to carry out.
Meanwhile, the interim board would hold elections to elect a permanent board on February 11.
