Dr Ishmael Akah, Head of Policy ACEP speaking at the event noted that the financial Administrative Act 654 2003 seek to ensure the effectiveness and efficient management of revenue, assets, expenditure, liabilities and the resources of Government.

He said unfortunately citizens and civil society organisations are not involved to ensure that the right things are done for specific purpose.

The initiative he said would empower citizens by writing contracts that would allow them have value for money and to have access to data and information on how their money are used.

Dr Akah said the documentary would be in simple narrative form and very soon in the local dialects to assist people make their own deductions.

This would help create wealth through active citizenship participation for the needed development.

He said Ghanaians could get access to the page through www.ouroilmoney.org or www.ouroilmoney TV for the right information.

Mr Francis Agbera, Oxfam International Representative and main sponsor of the project congratulated ACEP for the initiative.

He said going beyond transparency and accountability and getting the right information is needed to keep government on it toes.
