As an insider and a person who has worked in Parliament for a very long time, I cannot hold back what I know about Hon. Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu and some members and leaders of the NPP, as it has become evident that the hatred of the Speaker by Majority leader, Hon. Osei Kyei- Mensah-Bonsu knows no bounds and will not end anytime.
After he did everything to prevent the Speaker from being elected including pushing Hon. Carlos Ahenkora to snatch the ballot papers and to chew two of them, inviting the military to fight the Minority Members on the floor of Parliament and going out publicly to say that Rt. Hon. Bagbin was not elected and that Prof. Mike Oquaye decided to step down and they the leaders of Parliament decided to permit RT. Hon. Bagbin to be Speaker. Since then, the daily attacks of the Speaker, made it evidently clear to all objective observers that, Hon. Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu hates the current Speaker of Parliament, the Rt. Hon Alban Bagbin.
The election of Rt. Hon. Bagbin was transmitted live and everyone saw what happened but Hon Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu wants everyone to believe that Rt. Hon. Bagbin was not elected.
Again, his failure as a leader of the Majority to see through the approval of the 2022 budget statement and economic policy of government has shown how desperate he now is in his effort to destroy the Rt. Hon. Bagbin.
What Hon. Osei-Kyei-Mensah doesn’t know or if he knows he finds it difficult to accept is that the election of Rt. Hon. Bagbin to the position of Speaker of the 8th Parliament of the 4th Republic is divine. The earlier he accepts that the better for him and all of us.
Could Hon. Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu tell Ghanaians how much he is spending on his First wife, a Zimbabwean, and his children, who are all living abroad? He should tell Ghanaians how much Parliament contributed towards the cost of the wedding of his first daughter with the Zimbabwean, last year.
He should tell Ghanaians how he is taking care of his Second wife, a Nigerian lady who he raped while hustling in Nigeria and was compelled by her family to marry?
He should tell Ghanaians how he is taking care of his Fourth wife, a Ghanaian, who his Third wife, the woman he is now living with in Kumasi, compelled him to send abroad.
Will he be honest enough to tell Ghanaians how much Parliament and the State has paid so far on his medical treatment at the American Centre of Medical Excellence in Dubai?
Will he disclose to Ghanaians how much was spent on Hon. Frank Annor-Dompreh, a first-time MP, when he was sent by Parliament to a hospital in the US for over 3 months?
Will Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu be honest enough to tell Ghanaians how much Parliament and the State spent on the treatment of the late Rt. Hon Peter Ala Adjetey when he was admitted to a hospital in the US for almost a year?
Hon. Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu should tell Ghanaians how much the State and Parliament have spent on the health of Rt. Hon. Prof. Mike Oquaye and his wife since he became Speaker? It is important to disclose that Mrs. Mike Oquaye has been hospitalized since the middle of 2020 up to date initially in Ghana and later in a hospital in India and now back to Ghana.
Ghanaians should ask Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu why he is not talking about the over £1,000,000 and $1,000,000 that has so far been spent on the treatment of the Minister of Finance in the UK and the US respectively.
Hon. Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu should tell Ghanaians how much the state has spent so far on the medical treatment of the President in the US, UK, France, Dubai, and other places?
If Hon. Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu fails to disclose the information requested in this write up to Ghanaians, I will be compelled to spill the beans. It is possible that the wise counsel of our elders that if you live in a glass house you don’t throw stones is unknown to Hon Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu.
We will return soon
