The Ghana Revenue Authority says a publication by Daily Statement of Tuesday 12th March 2019 that changes has occurred is not true.
The publication sought to create the erroneous impression that the Commissioner-General and two of his Commissioners have been “cleared from office”.
A statement from the GRA signed by the Assistant Commissioner Communication & Public Affairs Department Kwasi Bobie-Ansah stated that the publication does not reflect the situation on the ground.
“The publication has no factual basis because the Commissioner General and all his Commissioners are still at post and carrying out their normal duties of ensuring the maximization of revenue for national development.”
Management of GRA therefore advised the media that such misleading publications affect the morale of staff and have a negative impact on revenue mobilization hence it is important for the media to be circumspect in their reportage of such sensitive issues” .
“We wish to emphasize that Top Management and staff of the Authority are focused on achieving the 2019 revenue target. Therefore, such publications which distract attention should be avoided” the statement added.
