Akufo-Addo Appoints The Man Who Spent Over GHc66,000 on Kitchen Cabinet to Chair GRA

Kwame Owusu is the incoming Board Chairman of the Ghana Revenue Authority.

Accra, Ghana, July 11, 2019//-Ghana’s President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has appointed the immediate past director general of the Ghana Maritime Authority (GMA) Kwame Owusu as Board Chairman of the Ghana Revenue Authority.

Mr. Owusu was involved in corruption scandal during his time as the boss of the GMA. It emerged that he had allegedly used over GHc66 thousand for kitchen cabinet.

A memo signed by an employee of the Maritime Authority, Rhoda Atiah, revealed that GHc66,835.00 was used to construct high-quality hardwood standard kitchen cabinet complete with drawers, Corian worktop and wall hanging unit including all necessary accessories.

Mr Owusu had also renovated his “colonial style” 2-bedroom Cantonments residence at the cost of GHc1 million, despite hue and cry from the public.

In spite of these hanging corruption scandals, the President of Ghana has given him another juicy appointment to do more damage to the public purse.

The June 18,2019 appointment letter asked Mr. Owusu to acknowledge his acceptance of the post in 14 days.

“Pursuant to section 4 (1) (a) of the Ghana Revenue Authority Act, 2009 (Act 791), the President of the Republic in consultation with the Council of State, has appointed you as chairman of the Governing Board of the Ghana Revenue Authority,” the letter signed by the executive secretary to the President Nana Bediatuo Asante said.
