The Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) says it will not return to its burnt Nkrumah Circle office anytime soon because it has secured two new offices to accommodate the Large and Medium Tax operations.
The authority is however unable to disclose the value of the damage caused by the fire.
Addressing journalists in Accra, the Commissioner General, Ammishaddai Owusu-Amoah challenged the assertion that there were no fire extinguishers and smoke detectors on the charred floor.
He said the GRA has been compliant with all safety measures.
Mr. Owusu-Amoah said it will be premature to quantify the value of equipment lost to the inferno.
