Currently what is trending in Ghana is the banter between Speaker of parliament Alban Bagbin and Majority leader Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu over who is really the head of parliament.
The confusion happened during the house activity on Tuesday, 24th March, 2021 on the UT bank collapse probe. Angry Alban told his former friend that at least he is 3rd in command after Akufo-Addo and Bawumia and what about him.
When Alban asked that people are asking him if Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu is still his friend or not.
Mr Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu interjected and said it is not for him to want to continue to be a friend of the Speaker. He said that it was a mutual move to be friends but Mr Bagbin said, “you have to be my friend not [for] me to be your friend, at least I have a position in Ghana, ‘Number 3’ what is your number?

Mr Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu said the ‘Number 3’ for the Speaker is not in government, “Mr Speaker, your Number 3 is not in government.”
Bagbin: “No, I didn’t say in government, I said in the country [Ghana]. What is your position in the country? number [what]?”
But amidst giggling, Mr Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu said his position is a versatile utility player, which may have much more significance than yours.”
At that point, Mr Bagbin sarcastically continued to ask him to state the number of his position amidst loud laughs from the floor.
