Volta: RTI commission climaxes it's public engagement.

The Right to Information Commission, which is mandated by the Right to Information Act, 2019(Act 989) to promote Act 989, is currently on a Zone 2 Regional tour and has successfully climaxed leg 2 of the Zone 2 Regional tour with a public lecture at Ho Technical University.
The purpose of the public lecture was to educate people to know their right of access to information as enshrined in Article 21 (1)(f) of the 1992 Constitution of the Republic of Ghana.
In view of this, Act 989 was passed to give modalities by which persons can access information in public institutions and relevant private bodies. However, being a new law, people have to be educated about the law so as to be abreast of its provisions.
The Commission, which is mandated to Promote, Protect, Monitor, and Enforce the right of access to information, as part of its promotional mandate, has been sensitizing the public to know their rights and obligations under Act 989. The Commission, on 12th and 13th July, 2022, educated the people of the Eastern Region after which it moved to the Volta Region to continue with the sensitization of the public, which was climaxed today, 15th July, 2022 with a public lecture held at the auditorium of the Ho Technical University.

They expressed their profound gratitude to the Commission for the honour and also commended the Commission for not relenting on its efforts in getting the public informed on Act 989.
