The Ghana Revenue Authority says there is no merit in the allegations by suspended morning show host of Angel FM, Captain Smart that the Authority was harassing owner and President of the Angel Group of Companies, Dr. Kwaku Oteng.
Captain Smart in an interview on Good Evening Ghana in the wake of his suspension, said Dr. Oteng claimed government was using the GRA to pressurize him to sack the morning show host for making the administration unpopular with his continuous criticisms
“I called Dr Kwaku Oteng and he said some people within Akufo-Addo’s government are calling him and have been writing him letters from Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) just because they say I talk too much.” Captain Smart told Paul Adom-Otchere
But the GRA in a statement says the claims are untrue. The Authority says its engagements with Dr. Oteng are routine and strictly professional
“The Authority, wishes to emphatically state that the allegations of harassment by the GRA are unfounded and false…..The GRA has at various times communicated with Dr. Oteng as part of measures to ensure compliance with tax obligations as it does all taxpayers ”. Excerpts of the statement read.
