The Government of Ghana has withdrawn the Zongo Development Fund bill from Parliament for further consideration.

The withdrawal was announced on the floor of Parliament by Osei Kyei Mensah-Bonsu, Majority Leader and Minister of Parliamentary Affairs, on Wednesday, October 11.

“The bill in its current state was found to have been a bit problematic, hence, the decision to withdraw it.”

It is recalled that during the electioneering period, the then candidate, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo – now President – promised to establish the fund as a way of uplifting the condition of the Zongo communities across the country.

To the end, the bill was prepared and sent to Parliament for approval, however, it has been withdrawn for further consideration.

i am still struggling to understand the rationale behind the Ministry in the first place. These zongos are part of our communities. we all enjoying and sharing the same facilities. How do u single out one area of the community and create a ministry for them. Are they now going to be provided with social amenities outside of the communities these Zongos are located? or re-construct their houses. What will the alocated funds be use for?

Osei kyei mensah bonsu has outlived his usefulness as majority leader. Pls Nana, adopt kuffuors style and change him. Give him a ministerial position that would take him out of the majority leader role. It's like *The. Minority through Haruna Iddrisu is controlling parliament. This is the third time that I am making this statement. Let's be serious.

This is not funny. The majority must be serious in parliament. You withdrew the Special Prosecutors bill and now Zongo Dev Fund. Mr President, open your eyes much wider. Haters wont win.

ray martin...stop displaying your ignorance here. and sometimes you should follow the debates and know why the bill was withdrawn..Kyei Mensah Bonsu is also not a lawyer so please check your facts well before you come and talk by-heart here... and more importantly learn how to spell Parliament before you come and tarnish Kyei mensah Bonsu's reputation. the bill was introduced to parliament by a certain body and not the Kyei mensah Bonsu so if in considering the bill they find out that there is something wrong with it...the proper thing to do is to withdraw it and send it to where it came from...fro proper work to be done to it.

Every thing you tackle in the house don't add up with standing orders of parliament.all what you know how to do is to wear that bobo dress, my question is are you from Nigeria or from northern part of Ghana??? I know good lawyers are always seen in suit with tile to march,Kyei Mensa Bonsu are you one of them? im a member of npp well well I I hate your performance at paliament shame on you.
