The Majority Leader in Parliament, Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu, says his decision to retire from parliament after 2024 had landed him big trouble.
According to him, some gurus in the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) are having issues with him for making that announcement about his political future public.
He, however, stressed that, even though many NPP leading figures believe that age was still on his side to continue serving in Parliament as Suame Constituency lawmaker, his decision to quit Parliament in 2024 was irreversible.
“I have said it and I am repeating it today, 2020 is my last term as the Member of Parliament for Suame Constituency and it is a personal decision that is irreversible.
“Since I made the big announcement, some leading members in my party have raised huge objection and they even have problems with me now.
“But I have decided that 2024 will be my last term in parliament and I still stand by it”, the Suame NPP lawmaker stated in a radio chat in Kumasi.
According to him, he had faithfully served the country in the House for many years and he believed it was about time he exited for a fresh blood to take over after 2024.
