Ghana’s parliament passes RTI bill

Ghana’s parliament has on Tuesday March 26 passed the Right to Information bill pending a presidential assent.

The Bill was passed after its third reading.

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo indicated his readiness to sign the Bill into law soon after it is passed by Parliament.

“Mr Speaker, I’m happy to state that as you know, Parliament has virtually completed its deliberation on the Right to Information Bill and any moment from now the nation will hear the news of its long-anticipated passing. I will happily assent to it as soon as it’s brought to my table,” President Akufo Addo said while delivering his third State of the Nation Address in Parliament on Thursday, February 21, 2019.

The Bill was initially drafted in 1999. It got reviewed in 2003, 2005 and 2007 but was only presented to Parliament in 2010. It was brought back to the Sixth Parliament but could not be passed till the expiration of that Parliament on January 6, 2016.
