Akufo-Addo Names Julie Essiam as New GRA Boss, Dissolves Board

President Akufo-Addo has appointed Madam Julie Essiam as the new Commissioner-General of the Ghana Revenue Authority.

She replaces Rev. Dr. Ammishaddai Owusu-Amoah. Prior to her appointment, Madam Julie Essiam was the Commissioner responsible for the Support Services Division of the GRA.

Also, President Akufo-Addo has dissolved the board of directors of the GRA.

Though no reason was given for the dissolution of the Dr. Anthony Oteng-Gyasi-led Board, reports say there have been some disagreements lately, according to a citinewsroom report.

The move by the President comes days after the Flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Dr Mahamadu Bawumia accused GRA of harassing businesses for taxes due to unrealistic targets.

The dissolved GRA Board had Dr. Anthony Oteng-Gyasi as the board chairman, while, Mr. Ammishaddai Owusu-Amoah, Mad. Adelaide Ahwireng, Prof. Peter Ohene Kyei, Mr. Kwabena Boaten, Mrs. Dela Obeng-Sakyi, Dr. Maxwell Opoku-Afari, and Nana Ama Dokua Asiamah-Adjei as members.
