Prof. Adei takes on Mahama over GRA allegations; demands apology

Board Chairman of the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA), Prof. Stephen Adei has refuted allegations by Presidential Candidate of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Mahama that he (Prof. Adei) is responsible for some financial misappropriation at the Authority.

John Mahama in an interview with the Editor of the Insight Newspaper, Kwesi Pratt Jnr, last Saturday accused Prof. Adei of conniving with the Finance Minister to illegally understate GRA’s mobilized revenue.

“Some of these things have been very criminal and I’m surprised that Prof. Adei as Chairman of GRA could connive to do something as criminal as this,” Mahama alleged.

In a statement, however, Prof. Adei maintained that the allegations levelled against him are untrue, false and malicious.

“I, Emeritus Professor Stephen Adei wish to state that the allegation is untrue, false, malicious and unbefitting of someone who has been a head of state and seeking the mandate of Ghanaians for another term in the high office of the President”, parts of the statement read.

Prof.  Adei also took a swipe at the NDC leader for bringing his hard-earned integrity into disrepute.

“To allege criminality and impinge on my integrity as a citizen with an unblemished career as an economist, diplomat, former Rector, Emeritus Professor of Leadership and Economics, as well as one who is ethically not ashamed born again Christian, theologian and preacher of the gospel of Jesus Christ, is most unfortunate John, and to do so taking advantage of social media is regrettable”, he added.

Meanwhile, the renowned professor wants Mr. Mahama to apologize for his comments.

“I, therefore, seek an unqualified apology from H. E. John Dramani Mahama, or I will advise myself after December 7 as I would not like to distract him from his seemingly desperate effort to win the forthcoming elections by any means.”

Furthermore, Prof. Adei is asking John Mahama to provide evidence to his claim that payment of GHS 15,000 and above being made before people are employed at GRA.

This he said is to ensure that culprits are dealt with surgically according to law by the Board and management of GRA.
