NPP presidential race: I’m not surprised about Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu’s ‘undemocratic’ behaviour -…

He added that it was dangerous for the NPP to let undemocratic people like Kyei Mensah-Bonsu to lead the government business in Parliament.

“Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, as I said earlier, refused to be contested in his own constituency when he was a Majority Leader, so, that tells you that the man himself is an undemocratic person.

“He doesn’t believe in democracy. In fact, because of his behaviour, I think a couple of NPP people who wanted to contest to get into parliament from various constituencies, did a similar thing…should not be left in the hands of such people…These are not democratic people,” he said.

He stressed that “They [NPP] don’t believe in democracy and I’m not surprised about what is happening now. What amazes me is that Akufo-Addo, who, all along, some of us have believed in him that he is a democratic person, should have called him to order.

“Now, look at the way President Kufuor handled this issue. Resign! Simple! Why can’t Akufo-Addo do that? Especially when they have started this sort of infighting so early. To me, if I had been in his shoes, I would have definitely resigned as a Majority Leader.”
