Board Chairman of the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) Professor Stephen Adei has asked former president John Dramani Mahama to apologize to him over comments he made to the effect that he is conniving with the Finance Minister to illegally understate the GRA’s mobilized revenue.

Mr Mahama made the accusation against Prof Adei when he was speaking in an interview with Editor of the Insight Newspaper, Kwesi Pratt Jnr, last Saturday.

“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,” he alleged.

However, in a statement, Prof Adei said the allegations 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”, the statement read.

It added “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 asked the presidential candidate, Mr. Mahama to apologize to him 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.”
