President Nana Akufo-Addo has directed the Commissioner of the Customs Division of the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA), Colonel (Rtd.) Kwadwo Damoah, to hand over his duties to an acting Deputy Commissioner, Seidu Iddrisu Iddisah.

This follows the expiration of his contract of service as Commissioner (Customs Division) of the Ghana Revenue Authority on 13 October 2021.

Mr. Seidu Iddisah will continue to act as the Commissioner of the Customs Division pending a substantive appointment by the President.

A letter addressed to Col. Damoah dated 26 August 2022  and signed by Secretary to the President, Nana Asante Bediatuo, said, “the President of the Republic has directed that effective Friday, 26 August 2022, you hand over your duties and office to the acting Deputy Commissioner (Preventive Service), Mr. Seidu Iddrisu Iddisah, who will act as the Commissioner (Customs Division) pending the President’s substantive appointment.

“The President thanks you for your service to the State and wishes you well in your future endeavours.”

Colonel (rtd) Kwadwo Damoah has recently been in the news after a report by the Special Prosecutor implicated the office of the Commissioner of the Customs Division of the Ghana Revenue Authority in corruption-related activities involving Labianca Company Limited.

The OSP recovered GH¢1.074,627.15 million from the company owned by a Council of State member, Eunice Jacqueline Buah Asomah-Hinneh.

A Deputy Commissioner of Customs in charge of Operations, Joseph Adu Kyei, was also cited by the OSP for issuing what it described as an unlawful customs advance ruling.

But, Col. Damoah took exception to this position and accused Mr Kissi Agyebeng of attempting to tarnish his image, following which the OSP called for all documents related to similar transactions by 30 September.
