The Majority Leader, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu (Hon MP, Suame), has lamented the actions of critics who assert that he is engaging in hanky-panky in an effort to resolve the dispute over the dismissal of Mr. Kenneth Kuntunkruku Ofori-Atta as finance minister between some Majority Members of Parliament and the President/Party.
On Sompa Fm’s Morning Show with Omanhene Yaw Adu Boakye on Tuesday, November 15, 2022, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu discussed what had actually happened between himself, the President, the NPP Party, and the irate Members of Parliament and questioned why his sleepless nights and relentless effort geared toward finding common ground for the MPs and Government Business (both of which he is the Leader) could be interpreted as such.
He said this lacks the depth of wisdom with which people should evaluate leadership.
The majority leader questioned what the critics may have done in his predicament if they had been in his place.
According to him, the current circumstance requires him to make sure that the aspirations of the constituents are met through their MPs while also making sure that the name and reputation of the NPP, the government, and the presidency are not damaged.
The clever politician/legislator cited constitutional provisions to support his arguments for why the Leadership believes that the finance minister’s fundamental human rights would be violated if he is not given the chance to defend himself in person or through his chosen attorneys before any censure proceedings can be taken seriously.
The Majority Leader therefore urged Ghanaians to trash such baseless and unfounded allegations and concentrate on finding pragmatic solutions to the current economic predicament we find ourselves in globally.
