Bessa Simons canvassed a total of 324 votes against his contender’s 66.

The polls have been long in coming as the Union has been hit with several cases, which have secured injunctions on the exercise.

The recent by complainants Doe Kwablah Seyenam Nyamadi and Frederick Van Dyk was thrown out by an Accra High Court in August, making room for Tuesday’s polls.

Since the tenure of Bice Osei Kuffuor, famously known in showbiz space as Obour, ended, the Union has been without a substantive Head.

The “Aworyi” hitmaker Bessa Simons has held the torch since 2018.
