The Coalition on the Right to Information, Ghana, is asking government to implement the RTI road map as it has become more important during this era of COVID-19.
This was contained in a press release by the Coalition to mark one year since Ghana’s President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo assented to the Right to Information Act, 2019 (Act 989).
“The Coalition wishes to emphasize that access to timely and adequate information and the need for implementing the RTI roadmap has become more important than ever in these times of COVID-19,” the statement said.
The Coalition says major indicators needed to be in place to ensure the full implementation of the law is still lacking. It is therefore urging government not to neglect its obligations under the RTI Act especially in this pandemic.
