Ashanti Regional branch of Zongo for NDC, a pro-Zongo group for the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) has rubbished the New Patriotic Party’s policy to set up a Zongo Development Fund(ZDF) describing it as unfeasible, unattainable and impracticable and one that is aimed at achieving cheap political points from the Zongos.

According to the group, the current NDC administration under the leadership of President John Dramani Mahama has done a lot for the Zongo communities as compared to the 8 years of the NPP under a Muslim Vice President.

The 2016 presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has said his Government will set up a special fund aimed at enhancing infrastructural development in the Zongo communities and improving the lives of their residents.

However addressing a press conference in Kumasi on Thursday, October 13, 2016, Ashanti Regional Secretary of the Zongo for NDC, Mohammed Abdul Basit indicated that it was rather laughable for anyone to suggest that because of the ZDF promise, the NPP had offered solutions to the problems of Zongos hence, worth supporting.

“Zongos cannot accept yet another ‘Sakawa’ promise to galvanize our votes and later abandon us as they did years back”.

He questioned the NPP’s commitment in developing the Zongo communities after it failed to turn Zongos into Modern Estates, a promise it made to the people of Zongo prior to the 2000 elections.
