The Minority Leader Osei – Kyei Mensah – Bonsu, has urged his numerous supporters calling on him to contest for the flag bearer position of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) for the 2016 Presidential election to stop.

According to him, he has absolutely no interest of leading the party at the 2016 polls which promises to be keenly contested by the two leading parties, the ruling NDC and largest opposition party the NPP.

The experienced Legislator has recently received lots of calls from his admirers urging him to contest for the Flag bearer slot, as the party prepares itself for the next general election and also especially when the party’s last Presidential Candidate, Nana Akufo Addo is yet to make known his political future.

While the former Minister of Roads and Highways and MP for Nhyieso, Richard Anane has also said he is under pressure to contest, names such as MP for Okere, Dan Botwe, former Minister for Trade and Industry, Dr.K K Appraku has also come up plausible candidates for the same position.

However speaking on Adom FM Tuesday, 17 September 2013, Hon. Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu stated that for now, he is content with his work in Parliament and remained committed to that duty and would not be distracted by the incessant calls.

He said his objective is to support a good candidate elected by that party who would be in pole position to wrestle power from the ruling NDC party and govern to improve the living conditions of Ghanaians which at the moment is nothing to write home about.
