A leading member of the opposition National Democratic Congress Dela Coffie has descended heavily on the Majority leader of Parliament Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu for his attacks on the Speaker of Parliament Alban Kingsfor Bagbin.
He strongly believes the leader of Government business is engaged in populist politics and constantly attacks the Speaker of Parliament.
”Some of us are getting irritated by your reactive/populist politics, and attacks on the Rt. Honourable Speaker. Essentially, you failed to deliver when it matters most as leader of Government business and Majority leader in Parliament”.
By now, it should be obvious to you that a near-hung Parliament as we have with the 8th is always going to need cool heads, by-bipartisan momentum and compromise on matters of national interest. But instead of reaching out to the minority to build consensus on the President’s economic policy for the year 2022, you went out of your way and engaged in rabble-rousing and name calling”, he wrote on social media.
According to Dela Coffie, Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu’s failure to reach a consensus with the minority side shows that he failed as a leader.
”A wise leader with problems on his plate grasps the nettle early and gets the pain out of the way. You failed woefully as a leader on this occasion and you should be doing some introspection and not aggravating the situation”, he said.
