A group of concerned Ghanaian citizens known as the Concerned Citizens of Ghana is demanding the immediate removal of Rev. Dr. Ammish-Addai Owusu-Amoah, the Commissioner General of the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA), and Mrs. Julian Essiam, a Revenue Generation Officer, from their positions. The group alleges that both individuals are occupying their positions illegally.
During a press conference held on Tuesday, the group argued that Rev. Owusu-Amoah, who is considered to be over the retirement age, has been unlawfully occupying his position as his contract with the GRA has expired. Despite petitioning the appropriate authorities for his removal and following the proper procedures, Rev. Owusu-Amoah has remained in office.
The Concerned Citizens of Ghana expressed their disappointment that almost two years have passed since Rev. Dr. Ammish-Addai’s contract extension expired in 2021, yet he continues to hold his position. This situation has financial implications for the country and places a burden on taxpayers due to the extended contract and its associated benefits, particularly in the current economic climate.
The persistent silence on these matters fuels our suspicion that something untoward may be occurring between the government and the GRA Boss, potentially to the detriment of the entire nation. We call for transparency and accountability in addressing these concerns to safeguard the integrity of our institutions and maintain public trust.
Additionally, our background checks reveal that both Rev. Dr. Ammishaddai and Ms. Julian Essiam, have chosen to stay in office beyond the age of 60, despite their contracts being renewed until 2021.
This brings into question the adherence to established retirement policies within the GRA,” the group said in its release
The group therefore wants him relieved of his post immediately.
