The Majority Leader in Parliament, Hon. Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, has described himself as a “utility player” whose leadership has been exceptional over the years.
To him, he is the ‘perfect’ leader and loved by the majority caucus for his stance on issues in parliament.
He was responding to claims by some NDC members in parliament that his leadership has been awful in recent times – hence, a need for the majority to replace him.
Quite recently, Hon Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu has been at the receiving end of attacks, especially regarding his leadership in the House.
His critics say he has failed lawmakers in Parliament.
NDC Member of Parliament for Banda, Ahmed Ibrahim, believed there is "leadership failure on the part of the Majority Leader", and further indicted him of failing "to be in constant touch with Parliament".
Another of his critics, George Loh, a former MP for North Dayi in the Volta region, accused the Suame MP of not showing good leadership in the current dispensation.
In his view, the majority leader displays arrogance and that has blocked any consensus building in Parliament.
But Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu maintained on NEAT FM’s morning show that his leadership is ‘solid’, and questioned the motive of an opponent craving for the leader of the other side to be replaced.
“Interesting how the opposition wants a change of captainship in a crucial match,” he surmised on "Ghana Montie".
