Ibrahim Mahama Settles Ghc 12.7m GRA Debt

The brother of former President John Dramani Mahama, Ibrahim, has reportedly settled his debt to the Ghana Revenue Authority.

The Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO) gave the businessman a two week ultimatum to settle the calculated debt, which was the figure owed by Mahama for goods he cleared from the ports using dud cheques.

Mahama settled his debt via two Stanbic bank cheques issued Thursday, May 4, in the amounts of GHC 10,216258.47 and GHC 2,176,544.61.

Ibrahim reportedly issued 44 dud cheques to the Ghana Revenue Authority to clear goods under the NDC government. Despite the cheques continuously bouncing, Mahama kept issuing such cheques to the authority which kept accepting them.
