Blessed Godsbrain Smart, host of ‘Maakye’ on Onua TV/FM has berated the Commissioner of Customs Division, Colonel Kwadwo Damoah, (retired) for attacking the personality of the Special Prosecutor.
Col. Rtd. Damoah has described some investigations being carried out by the Special Prosecutor on Labianca Limited as a calculated attempt to dent his image, which he says would not suffice.
During an address to some senior customs officers in Kumasi last week, Col. Damoah had disclosed that the Special Prosecutor’s report on Council of State member, Jacqueline Eunice Buah Asomah-Hinneh, who had used her position to influence decisions from the Customs Division of the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) was “hollow”. The said decisions according to the report led to a reduction in tax liabilities the company was supposed to pay.
The Special Prosecutor, whom, Col. Damoah described as a “small boy” was attempting to discredit and indict him [Damoah] as well as the Deputy Commissioner of Operations of the GRA in the report being investigated by his office.
The comments have met several criticisms where many feel the personal attacks on Mr. Kissi Agyebeng, the Special Prosecutor, were unfounded.
But speaking on his show, Maakye, Monday, August 15, 2022, Captain Smart, said the Commissioner of Customs Division is just like Afari Gyan – Ghana’s longest serving Electoral Commissioner – who only collates regional results to declare elections.
Just as Col. Damoah is not directly involved in the daily operations at the port where the supposed La Bianca scandal was birthed, Captain Smart said either calling the officers involved or setting up a Committee to investigate the issue would have helped rather than the tantrums being thrown about.
“Damoah, if I were you, I wouldn’t talk. Because you don’t manage the day to activities of the port. You’re like Afari-Gyan. You only declare collated results in Accra so you’re not responsible for what happens at a polling centre so it’s those managing there that you question. You should have asked the officers who were in charge, you interdict them or set a committee,” he lamented.
