Osei-Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, the majority leader in parliament, has denied accusations that he was involved in a scheme to force Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia on the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

The Majority Leader is believed to have claimed in an audio clip broadcast by Kumasi-based radio station Sompa FM that he is a part of a scheme to make the Vice President flagbearer.

Mr Mensah-Bonsu in a statement signed and issued in Accra on Saturday indicated that “I have not been involved in any interview, discussion or conversation in which the statements contained in the clip have been made by me; that I have not been involved in any plot or orchestration to impose the Vice President, HE Alhaji Dr Mahamudu Bawumia on the NPP.”

He said that this is a part of a larger plot to damage his reputation and cause strife inside the party.

“That any rudimentary analysis of the audio clip would reveal that, the voice contained in the clip, and which a commentator in the same clip is attributing to me is NOT my voice. That the audio clip is a rather infantile attempt to not only bring my reputation into disrepute but sow seeds of discord in the NPP” the Majority leader said.

The President, Dr. Bawumia, the party leadership, and all NPP supporters were advised by Mr. Mensah-Bonsu to dismiss the aforementioned audio tape and its contents and treat them with the disdain they merited.

Additionally, he wanted an unequivocal apology from the radio station within 24 hours.

“In the meantime, I demand a retraction and an apology 48 hours from Sompa FM failing which I reserve the right to advise myself,” he added.
