Alexander Afenyo-Markin delivered a reflective address to fellow Members of Parliament, expressing both gratitude and a sense of disbelief upon his appointment as Majority Leader—an achievement he had once considered unattainable.


As he addressed his parliamentary colleagues on Friday, February 23, Afenyo-Markin admitted, “I never saw this day coming,” revealing a candid reflection on his life’s journey, particularly in Winneba, where his political aspirations took root.


Sharing a pivotal moment from 2004, Afenyo-Markin recounted how his youth compelled him to withdraw from a parliamentary race, facing challenges associated with being perceived as too young for such a responsibility.


The turning point came in 2012 when Afenyo-Markin triumphed, securing the position of MP for Effutu and signaling a significant shift towards political success.


His tenacity and dedication to public service ultimately surmounted the obstacles that had once hindered his political ambitions. In his address to the House, Afenyo-Markin expressed gratitude to all for their support, acknowledging the highs and lows of his journey leading to this prominent position in legislative leadership.
