Cabinet approves Right to Information Bill

Source: Myjoyonline.com


Cabinet has approved the Right to Information Bill pending its passage into law by Parliament.

Speaking to journalists at the Flagstaff House on Friday, Minister of Information and Media Relations Mahama Ayariga asked Parliament not to waste time passing the Bill into law.

Mr. Ayariga said: “The President [John Mahama] places premium on the expeditious passage of the bill” as he is determined to run an “open government” he promised during the electioneering campaign.

“He will give his assent to it immediately the Bill is passed into law by Parliament…We would want to urge Parliament to give priority to this piece of legislation.”

The Right to Information Bill enables every person in Ghana to access information from the Government. It promotes transparency and accountability in public offices.

This allows every person in Ghana to be more proactive about the Government's policies and conduct of civil servants as well as strengthening democracy by increasing citizen participation through empowerment.
