Ghana Revenue Authority locks fuel stations over huge debts
The Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) has locked up some fuel stations
in the Greater Accra Region over huge debts owed. The affected stations
include Grid Fuel Station at Dome and Sonnidom at Achimota Mile 7.
Grid Petroleum owes GHS1, 253, 169. 51p while Sonnidom owes GHS 861, 702. 13p.
Other defaulters include Life Petroleum, Santel Limited,
Delman and Co and Petra Energy.
Chief Revenue Officer of GRA, Nathaniel Nii Okai Tetteh,
told Adom News‘ Kwame Kulenu the debt accumulated from 2019.
According to him, all efforts made for the companies to pay proved futile,
hence the move to lock the stations.

Mr. Tetteh noted the team came to a fueling station, Capital Hill,
near Sowutwuom which is under Sawiz to collect a debt of GHS 5,122, 387. 20.
To their utmost surprise, when they arrived at the premises it was not
in operation, adding that the company confirmed it in a letter to the GRA.
However, their checks revealed the fuel station was rebranding
to Gulf Energy Ghana. Meanwhile, Mr. Tetteh said Sawiz has offices
at Afienya and Michelle Camp so they will follow up there.
