The Minority Leader in Parliament, Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson, has expressed a sense of loss following Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu's resignation from the role of Majority Leader.

He remarked that Parliament remains in a state of surprise due to the unexpected nature of the Suame MP's exit from leadership.

However, Dr. Ato Forson emphasized that the House must honour Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu's decision and refrain from criticizing him for it.

Addressing Parliament after the former Majority Leader's formal announcement of resignation, Dr. Ato Forson praised Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu's extensive knowledge and experience in Parliamentary practices and procedures, adding that few can match his expertise in this regard.

"Having been Deputy Majority Whip, Majority Chief Whip, Deputy Majority Leader and Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs, Minority Leader, Majority Leader and Minister for Parliamentary Affairs, he rose full cycle through all the ranks of both Minority and Majority front bench of this august House."

"Many, including my good self, will attest to his outstanding leadership, brilliance rigour and attention to detail. His uniquely humane and personable nature have always commanded the respect and admiration of his colleagues", he stressed.

Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, the Member of Parliament for Suame, officially declared his resignation as Majority Leader on Friday.

He made this announcement in Parliament on Friday, clarifying that the decision was solely his and not influenced by external pressure, as speculated in some media reports.

Mr Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu encouraged members of the Majority Caucus to extend their support to his successor, Alexander Afenyo-Markin, by providing all necessary assistance.

"On Wednesday, February 21, at a meeting with the caucus and the President, I formally announced my decision to resign as the Majority Leader in order to still the storm and facilitate the peace and unity for the party at this time," he said.
