"Nothing must stand in the way of RTI - Ata-Akyea

Koforidua, Oct. 31, GNA - Mr Ata-Akyea, Member of Parliament (MP) for Akyem Abuakwa South, has indicated that since the Constitution recognizes the need for a Right To Information (RTI) regime in the country to enhance the democratic dispensation, nothing must stand in its way.

He said current rhetoric about the RTI remained vague until the law was passed to ensure that systems and structures were put in place to facilitate its smooth implementation for the growth of the country's democracy.

Mr Ata- Akyea who made the remark at a meeting with a team from the Eastern Regional Coalition on the RTI in Koforidua at the weekend, noted that when passed, the law would clear all rumours and misconceptions since people would be well- informed to make contributions towards socio-economic development.
