Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu finally bows out of Parliament after 28 years
One of Ghana’s longest serving lawmakers and Member of Parliament (MP) for Suame constituency Hon. Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu has revealed that he will not contest for his seat in Parliament after almost three decades.
The Majority Leader in Parliament in a recent interview noted that, per his age, and number of times he has been in Parliament, it is time he bows out of the house.
He was responding to a question on whether or not Ghanaians would see him again in the 9th Parliament of Ghana. Hon Osei Mensah stated categorically “I have said it clearly that, per my age I will end it here and show my gratitude”.
According to him, though some leaders in his party are calling for him to return to the house in 2025, he has not thought of going back.
“People in my party both region and national are calling and insisting that they need me but as at this time talking to you. I have spoken and made my stance clear”, he revealed.
Mr Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu while arguing on why he may not seek reelection stated that, “you bow out when the applause is loud”.
“I know the pressure that has come on me, but we are not going to discuss it on radio, we will talk about it later”, he noted.
