The Commissioner of the Customs Division of the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA), Col. Kwadwo Damoah, (RTD) has stated that attempts by the Special Prosecutor, Kissi Agyebeng, to disgrace him with corrupt accusations in-line with his responsibilities will fail.
Speaking to some Senior Customs officers at a retreat in Kumasi, Col. Damoah said, the allegations filed against him and some senior officers are a calculated attempt to dent his reputation.
According to him, the claims are being made by some disgruntled members of the customs service who are jealous of his control in the sector.
He added that as long as he remains in the command he will ensure his officers are protected against unfortunate intimidation.
“Three days ago a report purported to be coming from the Office of the Special Prosecutor trying to indict the Deputy Commissioner of Operations and myself [but] anybody who has read that report very well will know the basis of that.
“And luckily for Me, God is always on my side, before that report came that person had made a comment to some people who had come to tell me [that] he [Special Prosecutor] was going to publish that will discredit me…and I sent people to go and tell him that he is a small boy and I am older than him, I have lived a meaningful life and if he attempts to destroy me it won’t be easy for him. People have tried and I have survived and this one too I will survive it,” Col Damoah said.
Col. Kwadwo Damoah alleged that the Special Prosecutor has targeted him because he blocked Mr Akurugu from becoming Kissi Agyebeng’s deputy.
