Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu briefs Speaker on changes to Majority Leadership, says his resignation was voluntary

Suame lawmaker Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu has briefed Speaker Alban Bagbin on the changes made to the leadership of the Majority Caucus in Parliament.

He said on the floor of the House that his resignation as Majority Leader was voluntary. He thanked the Speaker Alban Bagbin for the cooperation that has existed between them over the years.

“Thank you for the cooperation and collaboration that existed between you and I over the entire period that our paths crossed,” he said among other things.

Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu has been kept as the Minister for Parliamentary Affairs despite his resignation as Majority Leader.

This was after the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) confirmed the MP for Efutu, Alexander Afenyo-Markin as his replacement as Majority Leader.

The Suame lawmaker resigned on February 21 during a meeting between the Majority Caucus and President Akufo-Addo.

The NPP NEC held an emergency meeting in Accra on Friday, February 23 to announce the changes made to the leadership of the Majority. At that meeting, the NEC decided to keep Mr Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu as Minister for Parliamentary Affairs.

The General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Justin Kodua Frimpong is expected to formally communicate the decision to Parliament, TV3’s Duke Mensah Opoku reported.

Other members of the newly constituted Majority Caucus are:

  1. Patricia Appiagyei (MP for Asokwa)  – Deputy Majority Leader
  2. Frank Annor Dompreh (MP for Nsawam-Adoagyiri) – Majority Whip
  3. Habib Iddrisu (MP for Tolon)- 1st Dep. Majority Whip
  4. Alex Tetteh Djonobuah (MP for Sefwi Akontombra) – 2nd Dep. Majority Whip

“Let’s bond & band together instead. The majority Caucus shall succeed. Let’s keep working hard…” Afenyo-Markin said.
