A Lecturer at the University of Cape Coast Business School, Professor John Gati says changes at the Ghana Revenue Authority will bring about no impact, if the necessary resourcing and tools for effective revenue mobilisation is not enhanced.
In an interview with Radio Ghana, Prof. Gati noted that it is important that state institutions are de-politicised to serve the interest of the populace.
Government made three new appointments at the top management level of the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA).
They are Ammishaddai Owusu-Amoah-Acting Commissioner for Domestic Tax Revenue Division; Colonel Kwadwo Damoah- Acting Commissioner, Customs Division and Julie Essiam – Acting Commissioner, Support Services Division.
A statement issued by the Ministry of Finance, said the three have been appointed in line with the new changes being made at the Authority aimed at mobilising revenue.
In line with that, the new appointees are expected to drive a number of critical transformational changes including modernising and digitising tax processes and systems as well as increase the quality of tax payer services.
