President Akufo-Addo has fired Rev. Dr. Ammishaddai Owusu-Amoah from his role as the Commissioner-General of the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA).

In addition, the President has also dissolved the board of the GRA.

According to reports, Julie Essiam has been appointed as the replacement for Rev. Dr. Owusu-Ansah.

Pressure for Dr. Ammishaddai’s removal has been mounting, with several groups contending that he has exceeded the legal age limit for public officers to remain in office.

The Minority in Parliament, led by Ningo Prampram MP Sam George recently demanded his dismissal.

Sam George labelled Rev. Ammishaddai a persona non grata due to his extended tenure beyond the mandated 60 years, suggesting that he lacked a valid contract with the state.

He also cautioned companies against engaging with Dr. Ammishaddai, asserting that he lacked the authority to commit the state to any contractual obligations.
