In a recent campaign event in the Suame constituency, the Majority Leader and Member of Parliament for Suame, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, expressed admiration for his colleague MP and New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer hopeful, Kennedy Agyapong. Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu urged party members to prioritize the interests of the party over individual aspirations as various flagbearer hopefuls seek their support.

While speaking about Kennedy Agyapong, the Majority Leader emphasized the importance of refraining from engaging in actions that would tarnish his reputation. He urged party faithful to exercise caution with their words, emphasizing that unverified claims about candidates should not be used as a basis for defamation. Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu highlighted the potential consequences of damaging the party’s chances by insulting any candidate, especially if they were to be chosen as the flagbearer.

Drawing a parallel to the American presidential outcomes, Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu noted that historically, former Vice Presidents, lawmakers, or state governors have typically risen to occupy the White House. However, he acknowledged that Donald Trump’s presidency broke the pattern by electing a businessman. Based on this analogy, Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu argued that Kennedy Agyapong qualifies for the presidency on two fronts: as a Member of Parliament and as a successful businessman.

Although the Majority Leader is known to support Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia’s bid for the NPP’s flagbearership, he respected Kennedy Agyapong’s campaign stop in his constituency. The upcoming NPP primaries are expected to see competition between Bawumia, Agyapong, former trade minister Alan Kyerematen, former NPP General Secretary Kwabena Agyepong, and several former ministers.
