Sammy Osei Kuffour, the former Ghana international has settled his property rate indebtedness of GH¢15,460 to the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA).
There had been a wide spread publication on his indebtedness when AMA posted a notice on his seven-storey Abena Ateaa Towers building on the Ring Road in Accra, giving him up to October 19, 2015 to settle his indebtedness or risk having the property sold to pay the debt.
The Abena Teaa Towers houses a branch of the Access Bank and the Academic City College, formerly known as the Sikkim Manipal University.
Samuel Laryea, the Director of Finance of the AMA, told the Daily Graphic the debt was settled immediately a publication was made on the amount owed the assembly.
In accordance with sections 104 and 106 of the Local Government Act 1993, Act 482, the former Bayern Munich player could forfeit his property after a notice had been served him.
The notice, signed by the treasurer of the AMA, stated: “In spite of a previous warning notice to you, it appears from our records that an amount of GH¢15,460 is still owed by you in respect of House No. C9614 for the 2015 year of assessment.
The notice, copied to the AMA Chief Executive, the Metro Co-ordinating Director, the budget officer and the metropolitan solicitor, however urged Kuffour to take advantage of the opportunity to settle the outstanding arrears.
