Government lost it on shepherding Ministry on RTI - Haruna

Minority Leader and Member of Parliament for Tamale South, Haruna Iddrisu has pointed out that the Nana Akufo-Addo led government lost it on the shepherding Ministry on the Right to Information Bill.

According to the Minority Leader government lost it when it changed the shepherding Ministry of the RTI from the Attorney General and Ministry of Justice to the Information Ministry.

“RTI is not about propaganda, or government information and miss information, it is all about the Right of access to information to aid in exposing what decisions that the Executive, Parliament and others may take”.

Mr. Haruna Iddrisu noted that in his view, to substitute AG for the Ministry of Information itself, “water downs” the policy credibility of the RTI. 

Again, AG has the mandate to combat corruption and to fight white color criminality, economic crime and others rest on the shoulders of the Minister of Justice and Attorney General.
