Prophet Osei Bonsu said all those who opposed the Bill still had the right to their opinion on the matter, but collectively “this is what we have decided to do as a Parliament.

“I am saying that this is a national concern and the President must give it a national response as early as possible…I’ll still plead with those who have ears of the President that he must move fast and sign so the process can continue; those who want to go to court can still go,” he stressed.
