Press Release - Cash For Transfer Hits Customs

There have been media discussions recently on the transfer of staff of the Customs Division of the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA). These discussions have centred on allegations of impropriety and unilateral actions by some Management staff. The Management of the Ghana Revenue Authoritry (GRA) wishes to put these discussions in the right perspective. The Management of the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) wishes to state as follows:

1. There is absolutely no truth in the allegations leveled against the Management of GRA regarding the transfer of staff of the Customs Division of the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA). The transfers were done above board.

2. The allegations of impropriety and unilateral decisions have absolutely no foundation in fact.

3. The transfers of staff of the Customs Division were done in accordance with GRA laid down processes and procedures.

4. GRA Management wishes to make it clear that similar transfers have been done for both the Domestic Tax Revenue (DTRD) and Support Services Divisions (SSD) without any hitches or constraints whatsoever.

5. The Management of GRA believes in team work and therefore no member of the team takes unilateral decisions on staff matters.

6. The Management of GRA wishes to say that there are internal mechanisms available for resolving staff grievances on such issues including staff movements or transfers. 

7. Staff are therefore entreated to make use of such mechanisms.

The Commandant of the GRA Academy, Mr. Appiah Warden Jnr. charged the beneficiaries of the project to maintain the facility to last longer. Nene Akoto-Sai VII (the War Lord of Agortime Kpetoe), on behalf of the people of Agortime Kpetoe, expressed his gratitude to GRA for the gesture.

The Acting Commissioner-Customs Division, Mr. Isaac Crenstil urged the people to form a Water Committee to ensure that the borehole was maintained properly to prevent it from deteriorating prematurely.

A similar project was also commissioned at the GRA Academy Girls’ Hostel by the Commissioner, Support Services Division, Mr. Fred Charles Anson. He noted that the facilities would help solve the water problems the students and residents faced.

Also present were some Deputy and Assistant Commissioners of GRA, Rev. Father Amevenku Moses, St. Stephens Catholic Church- Agortime Kpetoe, Hon. David Dickson Dzokpe - the District Chief Executive Nominee for Adaklu - Ziope District, the traditional rulers and opinion leaders of the community.
