The 1992 Constitution, Article 21 (f) grants every Ghanaian the right to information regarding public sector affairs and governance in general. It is against this backdrop that Parliament passed the Right to Information ACT, 2019 (Act 989) which His Excellency, the President of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo assented to on 21st May, 2019.
The RTI ACT 989 promotes transparency and accountability by empowering people to access information on central and local governments as well as non-governmental organizations, which are publicly funded. In compliance with this law, a Right to Information Office, located within the Public Relations Unit of the Ministry, is operational and Mrs. Loveridge Ampratwum Okyere has been appointed as our first officer to facilitate this cause.
In line with the COVID-19 protocols, the Ministry of Finance encourages all members of the general public seeking information under this law to complete this form (click here to download the form) and forward same to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications may also be submitted in person at the front desk of the Ministry.
