Co-Chair Citizen’s Movement Against Corruption (Cmac) Edem Senanu, says the president’s refusal to release the full KPMG audit report into the controversial revenue mobilisation agreement between the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) and Strategic Mobilisation Ghana will not promote transparency and accountability.

Speaking to 3FM Midday News with Beatrice Adu, Edem Senanu noted the president can review his position on this matter, and if there are sensitive portions they can be redacted.

“In promoting good governance, transparency and accountability are key pillars. The President can review his position on this matter, and if there are sensitive portions they can be redacted.”

GRA-SML deal: You asked KPMG to find facts; facts are not subject to protection from the public – Prof Asare tells Akufo-Addo

Senanu stated that the issues contained in GRA-SML DEAL are not issues of national security not to be released.

He contends that the refusal of the president to release the full report raises red flags and suspicion.

“The issues contained in GRA-SML deal are not issues of national security not to be released“

“In promoting good governance, transparency and accountability are key pillars. The President can review his position on this matter, and if there are sensitive portions they can be redacted“

“When the president refuses to release the full report it raises red flags, it makes it suspicious for all of us“

The president’s refusal to release the full KPMG audit report on the revenue mobilisation agreement between the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) and Strategic Mobilisation Ghana Ltd (SML) continues to receive backlash.

Investigative journalist Manasseh Azure Awuni whose outfit the FOURTH ESTATE work led to the revelation in response wrote on X formerly Twitter.

“The SML deal stinks. If they think hiding the KPMG report will make us forget the SML scandal, they should think again. The SML scandal will not die. And those behind in the past and in the future will face justice, no matter how long it takes.”

The Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) this month indicated it had terminated the transaction Audit and External Verification Service Contract with Strategic Mobilization Ghana Limited (SML), in compliance with directives given by President Akufo-Addo.
