The Ranking Member on the Constitutional, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs Committee of Parliament, Inusah Fuseini, had indicated that the committee will not travel outside Ghana for the sole purpose of learning from countries already implementing a Right to Information law.
According to him, enough work has been done and there is no need to travel, “work we have done so far will aid us promulgate a robust legal regime to throw sunshine on the act of corruption,” he stated.
The Joint committee on Communications, Constitutional, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs last weekend was in Koforidua to take the RTI Bill 2018 through a clause by clause consideration to enable them present a report to the plenary of parliament.
In an interview with ghanamps.com the ranking member on the Constitutional, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs committee, said the joint committee would endeavor to incorporate views expressed by civil society in their report.
As to whether the RTI Bill will pass the test of time, he said no bill passed is said to be perfect, but if it stands the test of time without legal challenges fine.
