Board Chairman, Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA), Professor Emeritus Stephen Adei, has directed customs officials to re-direct all purported protocol clearance of goods to his office

This according to Prof Adei would be part of measures to block revenue leakages within the Ghana Revenue Authority.

He gave this directive during a site visit to the Custom Division, Tema Collection, at the Port of Tema to interact with staff of the GRA.

“From today if anybody says there is order from above, and you collaborate and you are caught you will be sacked immediately. When there is order from above refer that order from above to me, if they say it’s from operations room in Jubilee House, say Stephen Addai says if you want to send directives from operations, send it to him and the commissioner to direct”.

Prof. Adei cautioned any officer who goes contrary to the directive, saying he or she will have himself or herself to blame.

His visit was the first interaction with the outfit since he took the chairmanship role a fortnight ago.
