The Member of Parliament (MP) for Suame constituency in the Ashanti Region, who also doubles as the Parliamentary Affairs Minister, disclosed this in an exclusive interview with JoyNews.

 

“We have sounded from the rooftops already, which means that the decision has been made. I’m not contesting; that’s for the avoidance of doubt,” he said.

“Time comes that one must decide to bow out when the applause is loudest,” he added.

 

Mr Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu was first elected into Parliament during the 1996 Ghanaian General Elections on the New Patriotic Party (NPP) ticket to represent the Suame Constituency in the Ashanti Region.
