The departed politician held his parliamentary position since 1996 and was a prominent figure in the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Parliaments. In 2007, he relinquished his ministerial role to contend in the NPP presidential race, although he did not emerge successful.
During the 2008 general elections, Mr. Owusu-Adjapong opted not to vie for re-election, and Joseph Ampomah Bosompem secured the seat for the NPP. Subsequently, in June 2008, he assumed the role of Minister of Energy, a position he held until the conclusion of Kufuor's administration in January 2009.
