Hon. Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu


The New Patriotic Party (NPP) is set to convene a meeting today, Friday, February 23, to address Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu’s resignation as the Majority Leader in Parliament.

Scheduled to take place at the Alisa Hotel in Accra at 9am, the meeting aims to facilitate the appointment of his successor, with many speculating that the current Deputy Majority Leader, Alexander Afenyo-Markin, will assume the role.

In a press statement issued on Thursday, February 22, and signed by General Secretary Justin Kodua Frimpong, the party urged all relevant individuals to ensure their timely attendance.

Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu resigned from his position on Wednesday, February 21, as confirmed by sources within the NPP hierarchy.

Although reports suggest that the Suame MP willingly stepped down during a meeting of the NPP caucus in Parliament and the executive, including President Akufo-Addo, political analyst Dr. Rasheed Draman has raised questions about the circumstances surrounding his resignation.

Dr. Draman has pondered whether Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu may have been pressured into resigning, and expressed concerns about the implications of encouraging individuals to commit to public service.

While acknowledging the party’s prerogative to select its parliamentary leaders, Dr. Draman emphasised the collective responsibility involved in governing the country.

“So really, we are just seeing a replay of the situation that we saw with the NDC, and Osei Kyei Mensah-Bonsu has now joined his friend Haruna Iddrisu in suffering the same fate,” he said.
