The fire which totally destroyed the GRA head office annex injured about four persons.

The firefighters took several hours to douse the fire which occurred at the GRA Kwame Nkrumah office.

Meanwhile, the Ghana National Fire Service (GNFS) has slammed the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) for ignoring a recommendation to enhance its fire systems to meet standards.

The Head of Public Relations of the GNFS, DOII Mr Ellis Robinson Okoe, told the Daily Graphic in an interview that in 2018, there was a fire audit report on the GRA’s Head Office Annex and the recommendations were that the authority should enhance the fire safety systems to meet standards, but “they didn’t follow them. If they had, I believe this situation wouldn’t have even occurred”.

But the GRA dismissed the claims by the Ghana National Fire Service (GNFS) that it disregarded recommendations to improve fire safety systems at the Large Taxpayer Office.

Commissioner-General of GRA, Ammishaddai Owusu-Amoah, said the Authority was yet to see the recommendations although there was regular interaction between the two institutions.
