Private citizens petition parliament over GRA Boss’s stay in office

A group of private citizens have petitioned parliament over the continuous stay in office of two senior officials of the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA).

The group defied the rains in Accra on Friday, March 24, 2023, and picketed at the GRA office and later the Parliament House.

The 25-member group, led by Charles Tuffuor, also petitioned the GRA Board.

They want the Commissioner General of the GRA, Rev. Dr Ammishaddai Owusu-Amoah, and the Revenue Generation Officer of GRA, Juliana Essiam, removed from office.

According to the group, Rev. Dr Owusu-Amoah is still at post despite attaining the mandatory retirement age of 60 years in 2021.

The Secretary of the GRA Board, Yaw Boamah, received the petition on behalf of the Board and assured that it would be given the needed attention.

Addressing journalists, the group said they were representing the interest of millions of jobless Ghanaian youth since people expected to go on retirement were still in office.

The convenor, Charles Tuffour, stated that the government needs to sanitise the public sector which is choked with over-aged persons.

He also indicated that two petitions had been sent to the Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP) but had not received a response.

Mr Tuffour’s petition to the OSP noted that the stay in office of the GRA boss defies the exact basis on which some state officials, including Dr Amishaddai’s predecessor, were removed from office.
