Akufo-Addo has shared belated contracts of retired GRA Boss, Rev. Dr Amisshaddai, to cover his tracks – Ablakwa

Member of Parliament for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, has shared documents detailing the contract extension of the recently sacked Commissioner General of the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA), Rev. Dr Amisshaddai Owusu Amoah.

On March 27, it was reported that the President had sacked Rev. Dr Amisshaddai Owusu Amoah after Member of Parliament for Ningo Prampram, Sam George, in January 2024, called on Parliament to declare the Commissioner-General a persona non grata as he had exceeded the mandated 60 years, suggesting he had no contract with the state.

But JoyBusiness reported that Rev. Dr Amisshaddai Owusu Amoah had not been sacked by President Akufo-Addo as the Commissioner General’s contract was extended by two years, from 11th October 2021, when he was said to have achieved the retirement age, to 10th October, 2023. 

The media house further reported that he was then given a further contract which should end by March 31, 2024.

Now, Mr Ablakwa has shared what he describes as “two belated contracts” meant for the retired former GRA boss. He believes these contracts were drafted for the Rev. “to cover his tracks.”

The contracts shared by Mr Ablakwa corroborates the earlier reports by JoyBusiness.
