The First Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Joseph Osei-Owusu, popularly known as Joe Wise, has expressed disappointment at the resignation of Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu from his position as Majority Leader. Osei-Owusu, while acknowledging Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu’s leadership qualities, expressed a wish that he had stayed on until the end.

Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu officially resigned on Wednesday, February 21, following a meeting with the NPP caucus in Parliament and the executive, including President Akufo-Addo. However, there have been speculations and questions raised by political analyst Dr. Rasheed Draman about the circumstances that led to his resignation.

Dr. Draman has raised concerns about whether Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu was coerced into resigning, highlighting the importance of individuals’ willingness to engage in public service and the message sent by such resignations. He emphasized the collective responsibility involved in governing the nation, despite the party’s authority to choose its parliamentary leaders.

During a press briefing in Parliament on Thursday, February 22, the First Deputy Speaker expressed his personal disappointment at Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu’s decision to step down. The NPP is scheduled to convene a meeting on Friday, February 23, at the Alisa Hotel in Accra to address his resignation and appoint a successor. Many anticipate that the current Deputy Majority Leader, Alexander Afenyo-Markin, will assume the role.

As the NPP navigates this leadership transition, the nation watches with keen interest to see how this change will impact the party and parliamentary operations.
