Osei-Owusu Vows to Develop Strategy to Maintain Unity Amid Leadership Reshuffle

The First Deputy Speaker of Parliament and Member of Parliament for Bekwai, Joseph Osei-Owusu, also known as ‘Joewise,’ has emphasized the importance of the Majority caucus addressing potential implications following the resignation of the outgoing Majority Leader, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu.

Speaking to journalists in Parliament on Thursday, February 22, the MP for Bekwai stated, “The caucus is going to refocus and decide where to go. I am sure moving forward the caucus will discuss all these ramifications, the effect of our leader resigning. The process of selecting or electing a new leader, we will discuss all that. And if there are any implications or negative impacts on our caucus, we may decide and plan a route that will keep us together.”

He expressed disappointment that the outgoing Majority Leader chose to resign, praising him as extremely hardworking.

“He can sit from morning till morning if there’s work to be done. I am personally disappointed that Kyei decided to stand down; he has been a fantastic leader, and he is an extremely hardworking person. And I would have wished that he stayed on to the end.”

Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu voluntarily resigned from his role with immediate effect, a decision revealed at a crucial meeting of the majority group on Wednesday, February 21.

The meeting, held at the Jubilee House’s banquet hall in Accra and convened by President Nana Akufo-Addo, was heavily guarded and attended by the majority of the group’s members. It was called amidst escalating tensions within the New Patriotic Party (NPP) parliamentary group, fueled by reports of plans to replace Kyei Mensah-Bonsu with Alexander Afenyo-Markin, leading to internal discord.
