I Stand By What I Said Against Gabby And I Won’t Reply His Text Message – Kyei-Mensah Remains Unapologetic



Majority Leader of Parliament, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, says he stands by his recent statements about leading New Patriotic Party Member, Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko.

According to the majority leader, he has received a text message from Mr Otchere-Darko following his public outburst, however, he is not ready to respond to the message.

“I have seen Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko‘s text message to me, but l have not responded and don’t think l will respond. Many of my party folks and colleagues have spoken with me and I wouldn’t want to escalate matters. Let me however state that I stand by what l have said. I won’t add on, neither will l take some out,” he told Neat FM in an interview.

The reaction by the majority leader follows a response by Mr Otchere-Darko to Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu’s outburst in a recent interview with Kumasi-based Oyerepa FM.

Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko in a Facebook post refuted claims that he is on record to have accused Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu as being the ringleader of the anti-Ofori-Atta NPP MPs who are seeking the dismissal of the finance minister.

The majority leader in a recent interview with Kumasi-based Sompa FM expressed anger over some allegations levelled against him by Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko.

According to the Member of Parliament for Suame, Mr Otchere-Darko has wrongly accused him of being the mastermind behind some NPP MPs demanding the sacking of Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta.

“From nowhere we hear Gabby Otchere-Darko on his Asaase Radio accusing me of instigating what was happening, for what? What do I stand to gain from that?” he retorted.

The majority leader questioned the authority of the cousin of the finance minister for levelling such allegations against him.

“There are people who would rather want to cause disintegration whiles you are committed to integrating. But now this has brought about another sense of anger. That Gabby Otchere-Darko, who does he think he is? I serve Akufo-Addo and I serve the party as well as the government… when we talk about the government itself what is your locus to be accusing me of being an instigator?” the majority leader questioned.

The majority leader noted that it rather had to take his intervention to instil calm when a group of MPs in the NPP made public demands for the dismissal of the finance minister.

Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu who also doubles as the Minister for Parliamentary Business further accused Gabby of sponsoring a contestant against him in the 2016 primaries of the NPP noting that he failed in his agenda.
