“Response to Ken Agyapong’s Allegations by Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu Following Kumasi Rally”

The Majority Leader of Parliament, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, has disassociated himself from what he describes as a “strong criticism” directed at him by the Assin Central MP and New Patriotic Party Presidential aspirant, Kennedy Agyapong. Agyapong accused him of engaging in “tribal and religious politics” during a rally in Kumasi on September 30, where he alleged that the Majority Leader, who plays a leading role in Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia’s campaign, is promoting tribal divisions within the party.

In response, a statement from the Majority Leader’s office, shared with Peacefmonline, stated that he has not supported or conspired with anyone to “take control of the party.” Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu emphasized his commitment to truthfulness, pragmatism, and realism in his involvement with the New Patriotic Party. He noted that his discussions and statements are well-reasoned and do not involve bitter attacks on others, ill-tempered behavior, or populism.

He expressed disappointment that Kennedy Agyapong would target him and clarified that he, along with others in the National Executive Committee and National Council, resisted efforts by some presidential hopefuls to undermine the clear provisions of the NPP Constitution. He described Agyapong’s characterization as unfortunate if it implies “hijacking,” “intimidation,” or “disrupting the party.”
