320 RTI officers assigned since passage of law, says Oppong Nkrumah

The information minister urged the public to take advantage of the law and make requests for information from public institutions whenever necessary

Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, the Information Minister, has said that since the passage of the Right to Information (RTI) law in Ghana, 320 designated RTI officers have been assigned to various public institutions to ensure compliance with the law.

He also mentioned that a total of 478 public institutions have established information units and designated RTI officers, which is a significant improvement in government’s transparency and accountability efforts.

“The assignment of designated RTI officers to public institutions is an important step towards ensuring that the right to access to information is protected and promoted,” Oppong Nkrumah said.

Speaking at a press briefing in Accra on Wednesday (10 May), Nkrumah said that the Access to Information (ATI) Division of his ministry has been working diligently to ensure that the implementation of the law is effective and that public institutions are properly equipped to handle information requests.

He urged the public to take advantage of the law and make requests for information from public institutions whenever necessary.

“The RTI law empowers Ghanaians to demand and receive information from public institutions, and it is our collective responsibility to ensure that this right is upheld,” Nkrumah added.

He said that the government is committed to promoting transparency and accountability in all sectors of the economy and will continue to work towards the full implementation of the RTI law to achieve this goal.
