GRA leases Acting Board Chair’s properties for ¢99k monthly

The Acting Board Chairman of the Ghana Revenue Authority has leased two properties to the Authority, raising questions of potential conflict of interest.

Adelaide Ahwireng owns Fio Enterprise which rented out two buildings – a three-storey duplex commercial building at Agbogboloshie and a two-storey office accommodation at South Industrial Area, both in Accra.

Each of the properties has been leased for five years with one-year advance payment required.

The Agbogboloshie property was rented out March 1, 2018, and ends 2023. The GRA agreed to pay ¢49,035 per month, making ¢588,421 a year. The GRA also agreed to pay ¢117,765 annually for “Common Area Maintenance”.

The two-storey office accommodation at South Industrial Area was also leased to the GRA in June 2019 and lasts for five years.

The rent is 50,400 cedis per month or ¢604,800 per year. There is also a “Common Area Maintenance” fee of ¢120,000 per year.

Emmanuel Kofi Nti, the Commissioner-General of GRA, signed the lease agreement on behalf of the tax-collection organisation in respect of the two-storey office accommodation.

A Commissioner, Fred Charles Anson, signed the agreement for the three-storey duplex commercial building at Agbogboloshie.

The GRA has a nine-member board. Mr Kwame Owusu, a former Director-General of the Ghana Maritime Authority, was recently announced as substantive Chair. He is yet to take office but brings his own history of controversy to the GRA.
