The First Deputy Speaker of Parliament and Member of Parliament for Bekwai, Joseph Osei-Owusu, often known as ‘Joewise,’ has emphasized the necessity for the Majority caucus to address possible repercussions following the departure of the outgoing Majority Leader, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu.

In an interview with media in Parliament on Thursday, February 22, the MP for Bekwai said, “The caucus will regroup and determine where to go. I am certain that the caucus will address all of these repercussions, including the impact of our leader’s resignation.

“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 his hope for the outgoing Majority Leader to have lasted till the finish, calling him tremendously industrious.

“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 resigned voluntarily with immediate effect on Wednesday, February 21, following a critical meeting of the majority group.

President Nana Akufo-Addo convened the meeting, which took place in Accra’s Jubilee House banquet hall.
