The Right to Information Officer for the Volta Regional Coordinating Council (VRCC), Mrs. Josephine Dake-Abrahams, on 24th October 2023, sensitized staff of the Labour Department and the Peace Council in Ho on the Right to Information (RTI) ACT 989.

The Regional Labour Officer, Mr Aspect Amoakoh, in his welcome address said it was necessary for everyone to know what the Act is and what we can all benefit from it.

Mrs. Dake-Abrahams took the participants through what the RTI Act stands for and its importance, the application and review procedures, the Commission, the exempt clauses, the sanctions, fees amongst others.

The participants took turns to ask pertinent questions mostly centered on the exempt information.

It was an interactive session and an enlightening one for the participants.
