- Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu has said the NPP won 2016 elections by dint of hard work and nothing else
- According to him, there was no special secret other than the party redoubling its campaign efforts as compared to other years
- Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu was reacting to recent threats from Kennedy Agyapong that he will reveal NPP's victory secret
Majority Leader and Minister for Parliamentary Affairs, Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu has stated that there is no special secret as to how the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) won the 2016 general elections.
According to him, as far as he is concerned, the NPP defeated the National Democratic Congress (NDC) through real hard work and nothing more.
“I don’t know what Kennedy knows which I’m not aware, but what I will say, hard work made us win that election. For instance, in my constituency, I was determined to prove to the NDC that it is by God’s grace and the hard work of my constituency executives," the Majority Leader is reported by MyNewsGH to have stated on Angel FM in Kumasi.
Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu reacting to a threat from Assin Central MP, Kennedy Agyapong that he was going to reveal the secrets as to how the NPP won the election if some top party who he claimed were sabotaging him did not stop.
“I am not a minister and I don’t fear being sacked. I will speak the truth till death. If anyone invites me I will not honour such an invitation from anyone in NPP because I fear no one. No one can also threaten me if they dare, I will come on the radio and reveal how we won the election. If they can go and sit at Alisa Hotel and threaten to collapse my business….they should get ready for me….I am ready to face anybody in NPP,” he reportedly stated.
But sharing his thoughts on the threat, the Majority Leader maintained that the party worked hard and was rewarded with victory.
Using his Suame Constituency as an example, he explained that he and his party executives went the extra mile by doing house to house campaigns which increased his votes by 4,000 and that of Nana Akufo-Addo by 2500 votes.
“Every house in the constituency was visited. We didn’t do grand rally and that approach increased the total votes. So that is how we worked, therefore I know hard work made us win the elections,” he reportedly said.
“If anybody has a secret about our victory, then he may know what I don’t or didn’t see," the Majority Leader who recently crossed swords with Ken Agyapong over Anas Aremeyaw Anas' Number 12 added.
