Article 21 (f) of the 1992 Constitution grants every Ghanaian the right to access information from public institutions, whether for free or at a fee.

In line with this, the House of Parliament passed the Right to Information Act, 2019 (Act 989), which was assented to by His Excellency, the President of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, on 21st May, 2019.

The RTI Act promotes transparency and accountability by empowering people to access information from the central and local governments, as well as non-governmental organizations, which are publicly funded.

In compliance with this law, a Right to Information unit is operational at the National Food Buffer Stock Company.
