Ghana's journey to establish the Right to Information (RTI) law concluded in January 2020 after two decades of effort. Passed on March 26, 2019, this law fosters transparency and helps in the fight against corruption across all public institutions.

On this day the 28th of September, we celebrate the International Day for Universal Access to Information (IDUAI). The theme, "The Importance of the Online Space for Access to Information," highlights the internet's pivotal role in information access.

In line with this, Ghana introduces the Online Records Management System (ORMS) for streamlined online RTI requests. ORMS, set for deployment by 2024, provides enhanced transparency, empowering citizens in their right to access information.

This marks Ghana’s commitment to a more transparent and accountable society.
