The Unified Group, which includes young professionals from various institutions are working groups aimed at championing the Democratic dispensations and the rule of law for accountable governance is calling for the Head of the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) for the breach of Article 199 of the 1992 constitution.

Nana Kwakye Anarfi National Communication Director of the group in a press release stated that, the
alleged continued tenure beyond retirement age, in direct violation of Article 199 of the 1992 Constitution, raises serious questions about governance and commitment to financial prudence, especially under current economic pressure.
He noted that, the case of the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) Boss, Rev. Ammishaddai Owusu-Amoah, serves as a stark example, and want reinstatement of accountability and transparency as core principles of governance and renewal of commitment to addressing Ghanaians’ concerns by all elected officials and government appointees.
The Unified Group demands the immediate resignation of Rev. Owusu-Amoah from the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA), full restitution of all remuneration received since his retirement age, and the application of legal consequences for any financial or administrative irregularities.
According to him, the group believe that promises made by H.E. Nana Akufo-Addo and Dr. Bawumia to protect the public purse at their inauguration have fallen short, as Ghanaians are facing significant hardship amidst accusations of high-level corruption, embezzlement, cronyism, and rampant unaccountability.
They lamented that, the perceived deafening silence by influential institutions like the National
Peace Council and the Christian Council raises concerns about their neutrality and commitment to speaking truth to power.
The group find it disheartening that the very entities entrusted with safeguarding ethical conduct seem selective in their pronouncements depending on the individuals involved.
The Unified Group expresses its profound concern regarding the alleged ongoing disregard for public accountability and transparency within the current government.
The group call upon the
government to address these concerns head-on, take immediate corrective action, and uphold the trust placed in the government by the Ghanaian people.
Nana Kwakye Anarfi urge the government to act swiftly and decisively to address allegations and restore
public trust, as the Ghanaian people deserve a government that prioritizes their well-being through transparency, and the responsible management of public resources.
The National Communication Director of the Unified Group call upon fellow citizens to remain vigilant and demand accountability from those entrusted with power and help collectively work towards a Ghana where the needs of the
people are placed above personal gain and where governance truly upholds the principles of justice and fairness.
