The Member of Parliament for Ningo Prampram, Sam George, is raising concerns about the continued tenure of the Commissioner-General of the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA), Rev. Dr. Ammishaddai Owusu-Amoah, following allegations that the GRA boss has been operating without a formal contract since October 2021, surpassing the retirement age.
Sam George recently brought up the issue during a Public Accounts Committee (PAC) session, sparking discussions about the legality of Rev. Dr. Owusu-Amoah’s position and the nature of contracts executed under his leadership.
Expressing his intention to communicate with the Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin, and the finance committee, Sam George questioned the justification for the GRA Commissioner-General’s continued presence in parliamentary proceedings without a valid contract.
Sam George also scrutinized certain contracts associated with Rev. Dr. Owusu-Amoah, raising suspicions about potential irregularities and calling attention to his alleged involvement in questionable deals.
The MP for Ningo Prampram emphasized the need for parliamentary action, suggesting that if the government does not address the concerns, Parliament should reconsider allowing the GRA to participate in parliamentary proceedings.
This development adds to the ongoing debate about the legality and transparency of the GRA’s operations, highlighting the importance of accountability and adherence to legal procedures within government agencies.
