GRA boss has no contract – Sam George

Parliament is being called upon by Ningo Prampram Member of Parliament Sam George to declare Rev. Dr. Ammishaddai Owusu-Amoah, the Commissioner-General of the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA), persona non grata.

He contends that the GRA boss has not held a contract with the government since October 2021, implying that he is engaged in illegal activity after reaching retirement age.

Sam George asked the GRA Commissioner-General’s age during this week’s Public Accounts Committee (PAC) meeting.

GRA boss has no contract – Sam George

Sam George announced in an interview with Umaru Sanda Amadu on Eyewitness News on Citi FM that he intended to formally write to Alban Bagbin, the Speaker of Parliament, and the finance committee to request that they no longer host Rev. Dr. Owusu-Amoah in the house.

“I know for a fact that the GRA Commissioner-General, since turning 60 years old in October 2021, has not had a contract. This is not the first time I’ve raised this matter directly with the Commissioner-General, drawing his attention to the fact that he’s engaged in illegality. He has persisted, and it’s been two years and three months since he turned 60. He has no legal basis to be there.”

“I’m writing officially to the President [Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo], and we will demand a response from him. I will be raising this with the Speaker [Alban Bagbin] as well when Parliament reconvenes, drawing the attention of the Speaker and the finance committee to the fact that Dr. Ammishaddai Owusu-Amoah must be declared persona non grata before PAC. We should not entertain someone who has no legal basis. If the government will not do the right thing, Parliament should not entertain GRA again in Parliament.”

He accused the GRA Commissioner-General of engaging in ‘dubious and unscrupulous’ contracts, questioning why he has remained in post after reaching retirement age.

“He [GRA boss] has engaged in a number of dubious and unscrupulous contracts. The whole country knows about the $100 SML contract. He has been used to carry out all the legalities for Ken Ofori-Atta [Finance Minister]. Why have they kept Dr. Ammishaddai Owusu-Amoah in the post, if not that he’s facilitating corruption and blatant stealing at GRA? This must be a cause of worry for all of us,” he claimed.
