Election 2020: Let’s Retire Mahama – Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu

Majority Leader and Member of Parliament for Suame constituency, Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu has called on supporters of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to vote massively for the ruling NPP to retire former President John Dramani Mahama from active politics.

He said they can help champion this by ensuring that Ghanaians vote massively against Mr. Mahama, who is also the flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress, in the upcoming polls.

Speaking at the launch of the NPP’s Bono East Youth Wing campaign in Techiman on Sunday, October 4, 2020, the legislator urged NPP members to ensure that President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo gets overwhelming votes on the election day.

“I told my constituents in the Ashanti Region that, the 2020 elections are ‘double-track elections.’ Akufo-Addo beat Mahama in the previous elections with a margin of about a million votes. If the margin of victory reduces in this coming election, he [John Mahama] will feel he can come and run again. Let’s vote massively and win by two million votes so that even the NDC would have no option but to retire him. That is what we must do.”

“This is why I am saying the election is a double track one. We are voting to win and also to retire John Mahama,” he said.

The legislator further called on the party supporters to work hard towards the 2020 elections, and maintain a united front.

He also urged the NPP members to vote for all NPP parliamentary candidates to ensure NPP maintains a majority in Parliament.

“If Akufo-Addo wants to do something, it has to be backed by law. If he doesn’t have the majority of his people in Parliament, and the NDC boycotts sittings as we have been seeing, it will be very difficult to pass any law. This is why we have to unite and get the majority of our people in Parliament.”

“This will ensure that whatever he [President Akufo-Addo] wants to do for you will be easily achieved. We can do this by being united,” Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu added.

Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu chaired the NPP Bono East Youth Wing campaign launch which was under the theme “Transforming Bono East into our strongholds: The focus of the youth.”

Henry Nana Boakye, the NPP National Youth Organizer, NPP parliamentary candidates for Atebubu-Amantin, Techiman North, Nkoranza South, among other party executives were also present at the launch.
