The RTI Bill was first drafted in 1999, reviewed in 2003, 2005 and 2007 but was only presented to Parliament in 2010 and was not passed by that Parliament and the subsequent one.

It was however relaid in Parliament in 2018 and was subsequently passed in March 2019.

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo signed the Bill into law on Tuesday, May 21, 2019, at a short ceremony at the Jubilee House. The bill will, however, start operating in January 2020.
