The Right to Information Law of Ghana was passed in March 2019, after about two decades of advocacy by the Media Foundation for West Africa (MFWA) and other key media stakeholders. Since then progress in making the law functional has been very limited.
In efforts aimed at activating Ghana’s Right to Information Law (Act 989) and increasing public sensitisation and access to information under the Law, the MFWA has produced this guide book titled, ESSENTIALS OF THE RTI LAW.
The book is a toolkit to help journalists, citizens and information holders understand the Act and how it operates.
ESSENTIALS OF THE RTI LAW is a five-chapter book containing practically all and everything in the Right to Information Act, 2019 (Act 989). It presents an easy understanding of the law and its operations, and empowers the reader to use and assert the law to procure information to which access is guaranteed under the law.
