Julie Essiam is new GRA Boss

Julie Essiam is new GRA Boss

61-year-old Julie Essiam has been appointed as the new Commissioner General of the Ghana Revenue Authority, replacing the 62-year-old Rev. Dr. Amishaddai Owusu-Amoah. Prior to her new role, Essiam served as the Head of Support Services Department at GRA.

There are reports that Board Chairman Dr. Oteng Gyasi has decided to resign due to his opposition to Essiam’s appointment, as she is believed to be favored by former Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta. GRA staff are also reportedly not in favor of Essiam’s management and leadership style, and may protest against her appointment.

It is worth noting that the former GRA boss faced criticism for staying in office past the retirement age without a contract, and more recently, Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia publicly addressed the issue of the GRA targeting corporate tax defaulters.

There is a good reason why you should support the African Editors. Not everyone can afford to pay for news right now. That is why we keep our journalism open for everyone to read, including in Ghana. If this is you, please continue to read for free. But if you are able to, then there are three good reasons to support us today.

1. Our quality, journalism is a scrutinising force at a time when the rich and powerful are getting away with more and more.

2. We are independent and have no billionaire owner pulling the strings, so your money directly powers our reporting.

3. It doesn’t cost much, and takes less time than it took to read this message.

Help power the African Editors' journalism for the years to come, whether with a small sum or a larger one. If you can, please support us on a monthly basis from just 1 Ghana Cedi through mobile money number: 0599896099/ +23359989609 and you can be rest assured that you’re making a big impact every single month in support of open, independent journalism. Thank you.
