of the Special Prosecutor, has been relieved of his duties as the Commissioner of the Customs division of
the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA).
A Letter from the Jubilee House signed by the Secretary to the President, Nana Bediatu Asante directs
Colonel (Rtd) Damoah to leave his role effective Friday, August 26, 2026.
“Following the expiration of your contract of service as Commissioner (Customs Division) of the Ghana
Revenue Authority on 13th October 2021, the President of the Republic has directed that effective
Friday 26th August 2022, you hand over your duties and office to the acting Deputy Commissioner
(Preventive Division)”, portions of the said letter release.
Over the past few weeks, the Special Prosecutor and Colonel Kwadwo Damoah have been at each
other’s throat over the corruption-related investigation involving the Labianca Company Limited, owned
by a member of the Council of State, Ms Asomah-Hinneh.
Findings from the investigative report released by the OSP indicted the Commissioner of Customs for
allegedly giving Labianca some GH¢1.074 million tax reduction in liabilities owed the state.
Colonel Damoah has rebuffed the report, describing it as “hollow and without substance”, taking a
swipe at the Special Prosecutor, Kissi Agyabenga, referring to him as a “small boy”.
The OSP has also, in a recent release to commence investigations into suspected corruption with respect
to auction sales of vehicles and goods by the Customs Division of the GRA, directed Colonel Damoah, to
produce some documents related to the subject matter of the investigation before August 30, 2022.
