The letter signed by one Kwaku Takyi Adomako, Convener, and Paakwasi Nimfah-Daviies, a member of the group, claims the NDC MP for North Tongu once managed Savvi Solutions and currently owns Volta Klenam Farms and Industries Ltd but both companies are not registered with the tax authority to pay taxes.
"It is of utmost importance that the tax compliance of Hon. Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, as a Member of Parliament for North Tongu, be observed and upheld, as it serves as a model for the general public," the group said in their petition to the GRA Commissioner-General.

He also wanted to know what the Registrar General intends to do about the 28 companies registered under the two names of the same person.
