The Right to Information Officer for the Volta Regional Coordinating Council (VRCC), Mrs. Josephine Dake-Abrahams on the 19th July, 2023 was at the Global FM station, Ho to sensitize the listening public on the RTI Act.

Jocelyne in her opening remarks made the public aware of the passing of the Act in 2019 and also stated that the station has dedicated the whole of July to the sensitization of the Right to Information.
The discussion was centered on the importance and the benefits of the RTI Act, the procedures and processes for applying, the officers responsible for handling the requests at the Public Institutions, exempt information, The Commission set to oversee all RTI activities, fees charged if any, amongst others.
The discussion was a very educative, interesting and interactive one. The host asked very pertinent questions especially regarding the exempt clauses.
