GRA refuses to use govt set target and gives itself abnormal targets – Bawumia

Published:

Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia, who leads the Economic Management Team of Ghana, has come under fire for comments he made about the Tax Authority’s target-setting process.

The Vice President sparked debate among public authorities and government officials when he proposed that the Authority set unattainable goals for itself.

A spokesman for the Ghana Revenue Authority Workers Union responded to Bawumia’s remarks by expressing shock at the Vice President’s position and emphasizing that the government, not the Authority, sets annual targets through the Ministry of Finance.

The spokesperson warned against making comments that might lower the spirits of diligent employees and underlined the need of appreciating the Authority’s efforts to increase tax income.

They pleaded with the population of Ghana, civil society organizations, the GRA Board, and President Nana Akufo-Addo to step in and stop such statements.

The union underlined how critical it is to resolve the matter quickly in order to avoid having a detrimental effect on future income mobilization. They demanded cooperation in order to guarantee a favorable atmosphere for tax authorities as well as enterprises.

According to primaries’ results made public by the Electoral Commission (EC), Mahamudu Bawumia, the Vice President of Ghana, was chosen by the incumbent NPP party to run for president in 2024.

The closest competitor, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, received 37.4 percent of the vote, while Bawumia received 61.4 percent, according to the official findings.

At the end of the next year, he would run against former president John Dramani Mahama of the National Democratic Congress.
