Majority Leader Kyei Mensah-Bonsu Resigns to Chair NPP Manifesto Committee, Asamoah Gyan, Others on Sub-Committees

Kyei-Mensah Bonsu's resignation came after a closed-door meeting at Jubilee House with President Nana Akufo-Addo and other party members.

Rumors that Majority Leader Osei Kyei-Mensah Bonsu would be leaving his party’s front bench in Parliament appear to have become true as he voluntarily resigned on Wednesday February 21, to take up the role of chairing the NPP flagbearer’s 2024 manifesto committee.

Kyei-Mensah Bonsu’s resignation came after a closed-door meeting at Jubilee House with President Nana Akufo-Addo and other party members.

With the announcement made, Kyei Mensah-Bonsu who’s stayed as one of the NPP’s longest-serving leaders in Parliament, will no longer be the majority leader. His deputy, Alexander Afenyo-Markin will likely replace him on the leadership bench as earlier reported.
