Isn’t it idiotic to ask for our votes – Kyei Mensah replies Agyarko’s ‘bloody fool’ comment

After nearly two years former Minister of Energy Mr. Boakye Agyarko referred to some comment made by Majority Leader Osei Kyei-Mensah Bonsu as bloody fool talk, he has finally given him a deserving response.

The Minister for Parliamentary Affairs in an earlier discussion on who to lead the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the 2024 general election, hinted that it would be beneficial for their party not to choose an Akan as flagbearer.

“Inwardly, I know I have the competence to lead the party but it is wise that after two Akans – former President Kufuor and current President Akufo-Addo to present a flagbearer candidate with different ethnicity. I think it is not good for a party that has been accused by some of being overly Akanistic in nature. But not everybody would agree with me and that is the beauty of democracy”, he said.

But Mr. Boakye Agyarko in a response described Hon Osei Kyei Mensah’s comment as bloody fool talk.

I am totally disappointed with the Majority leader. Are you the one going to bring this noise into the party? I use to remember conversations I used to have with him, whiles I was based in the USA, on the phone all the time. You let some of our children “some bloody fool” bring such noise into the party. Mr Boakye Agyarko said.

However, in a response to Mr Boakye Agyarko’s insulting comments after almost two years on Angel FM Kumasi in an interview, the MP for Suame Constituency also wondered if the Former Energy Minister is saying his decision to contest in the NPP presidential candidate race is an idiotic talk.

“Boakye Agyarko sat on Oman FM and described what I said as bloody fool talk. I said I didn’t want it, but the same Boakye Agyarko says he wants to lead the party so we should vote for him. Is he telling us what he is doing is not engaged in bloody fool talk? Is it, not idiotic talk for him to say we should vote for him? Hon Osei-Kyei-Mensah wondered.

Mr. Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu argued that, even if Mr Boakye Agyarko disagreed with what he said, that doesn’t mean he should insult him in such a manner.

“You insult by telling the Majority Leader what he is saying is bloody fool talk. Is that the hallmark of a leader?” Hon Osei-Kyei-Mensah quizzed.
