Why I No Longer Use The Name‘Lawrence Addae’– Majority Leader Osei Kyei Explains



 The Majority Leader in Parliament has been explaining why he'd to change his name from‘Lawrence Addae’in the history to his purely original name‘Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu’which he presently uses. 

It'll be recalled that some members of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), have indicted the Suame Member of Parliament of having configurations in his cupboard for which reason he changed his name. 


 But speaking with Joy News, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu mentioned that it was his elderly kinsman who gave him the name “ Lawrence Addae"-when he was entering abecedarian academy. 

He, still, stated that he was inspired to revert to a purely original name upon taking alleviation from a Ga pupil in his secondary academy,St. Peters. 


 The leader of government business in Parliament said he'd to combine his former name‘Osei Bonsu’with his father’s name‘Kyei Mensah’to get his current name. 

“ I was born‘Osei Bonsu’. My father is Kwaku Kyei Mensah. But my father was born on an Awukudae so he used to be called Kwaku Addai. So growing up into abecedarian academy, my elderly kinsman was the bone who named me Lawrence Addae. It was the name I bear at class two or class three up to the secondary academy position. Also we had a youthful man who came to my academy, St Peters Secondary Academy … a Ga joe who was called Quarshie. 


 “ He came to form a pupil movement for African Unity. I suppose we were impressed with the knowledge, the Africanness of the man, so, when I went there, I was inspired by Quashie and I had wanted to change my name from the Addae Lawrence that I bear to use my maiden name‘Osei Bonsu’and joining it up with my father’s name that's‘Kyei Mensah’. So that’s how come I joined it up to come Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu. That's incorporating my father’s name‘Kyei Mensah’and my own‘Osei Bonsu’,” Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu explained. 

Online news gate,mynewsgh.com reported in January last time that NDC General Secretary, Asiedu Nketia said the maturity leader had a dark history therefore making him unfit to take any other clerical appointment. 


 It reported that Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu was allegedly suspended in SHS for alleged burglary and unruly conditioning. 

A letter of suspense fromSt. Peters Secondary Academy (a academy he's said to have attended in themid-1970s) for allegedly breaking into the academy’s stores among others. 


 The reports said his original name was actually Lawrence Addae before the contended incident which earned him disgrace in his teenage times until he decided to put his history behind, turn over a new splint and gained admission into the also University Science and Technology ( now known as the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology KNUST) for a Bachelor’s degree in Designing. 

He allegedly changed his name from Lawrence Addae to Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu in the late 1970s as contained in a indirect circulated by the also Director of Academic responsible for Students Affairs. The indirect was numbered 2573/Vol. 1 of August 9, 1979.
