The Right to Information Bill when passed to will give media practitioners the leverage to access information and materials for publication as well as afford journalist to be professional in their work. Regrettably however, the parliament of Ghana and for that matter the committee responsible says its broke and financially constrained hence the delay in its passage. WHAT..........God save us.
The Chairman of Parliament’s Communication Committee, Felix Twumasi-Appiah says the house has not been able to pass the Right to Information Bill because of financial constraints."Parliament is too broke to sponsor the committee in its activists to engage with stakeholders before the bill can be passed" he emphasized.But we are aware the World Bank had indicated their preparedness to fund the project.
