Right to Information (RTI) Commission Members Pay Courtesy Call to the Upper West Regional Coordinating Council

The Commission members of the Right to Information (RTI) Bill paid a courtesy visit to the Upper West Regional Coordinating Council. Their visit aimed to strengthen ties and discuss their upcoming public lecture within the region. The RTI team, on a mission to engage with the public and educate them about the importance of their work, used the opportunity to brief the Regional Chief Director of the Upper West Regional Coordinating Council Mr. Peter Maala on their activities. The Executive Secretary for the right to information Commission, Yaw Sarpong Boateng gave a brief background of the Right to Information (RTI) law and outlined some of the successes the Commission has achieved and the challenges it is facing in the implementation of the law. He appealed to the Regional Coordinating Council for the allocation of dedicated office space for their commission. This request reflects their determination to have a physical presence in the region, making it easier for citizens to access information and engage with the commission. This step underlines the commitment of the RTI board to establish strong working relationships with local authorities. Speaking on behalf of the Upper West Regional Minister, the Chief Director of Regional Coordinating Council, Mr. Peter Maala, assured the delegation of the fullest support and cooperation of the RCC in all the activities of the Commission in the region. He therefore indicated the readiness of the RCC in participating fully in the public lecture to be held on Thursday 9th 2023. The RTI Commission’s visit to the Upper West Region is in line with a scheduled program set to take place at Jahan Training College on Thursday. This program promises to shed light on the RTI bill’s activities and its significance in promoting transparency and accountability. The visit further exemplifies their dedication to creating awareness and fostering partnerships at the regional level. The collaboration between the RTI commission and local authorities holds the potential to empower citizens with the information they need to actively participate in governance.
