Finance Minister commends GRA over revenue mobilization

Finance Minister Dr. Mohammed Amin Adam has commended the revenue mobilization efforts of Ghana Revenue Authority officials at the Tema Port.

In a recent visit to the port, which forms part of a broader economic strategy aimed at curtailing revenue losses and diminishing perceptions of corruption within port operations, Dr. Adam expressed his appreciation for the efforts of the officials.

He urged them to intensify their efforts in stemming all avenues of revenue leakage within the port system.

“I am sure many people may be thinking that my visit here is to chastise you but my visit here is to motivate and encourage you for what you do. When the sector commander was speaking, it became clear that you have been doing well but…you are short of 11.3 percent and so there is a need for improvement.”

He also assured the officials of a greater collaboration to address the challenges bedevilling the Ghana Revenue Authority.

“I am very determined to work with you at the management and staff level to address the challenges that you have been experiencing and having over the years. There are leakages and you must ensure that we block those leakages.

“I have received information that there are some goods that are not accounted for and I have been discussing with the commissioner-general how we resolve this because it is important that we put in extreme measures to ensure the accountability of commanders at the warehouses.”

The Flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia on the contrary, in an engagement with members of the Ghana National Chamber of Commerce and Industry on Wednesday, March 20, 2024, accused the GRA of harassing businesses due to unrealistic targets.
