The Minority Chief Whip has said that he is not retiring from parliament anytime soon because he still has strength to work as a Member of Parliament.

Hon. Muntaka Mubarak has represented the people of Asawase in the Ashanti Region for 16 years as a Member of Parliament. Comparing the Majority Leader, Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu, the Chief Whip says it is unfair for anyone to ask him when he is leaving Parliament.

“I have done just 16 years but someone like Osei Kyei has done 24 and still wants to be in parliament though his track record is nowhere near mine. So looking at my age and the fact that I still have strength, I will do more and retire sometime later,” he said.

Apart from Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu, the oldest in the August House is Alban S.K Bagbin who is the MP for Nadowli-Kaleo but will not be coming to the house after the general elections that will be held in December.
