Accra, Oct. 22, GNA – The Accra Metropolitan
Assembly (AMA) has said business and property owners who have defaulted in the
payment of revenue will pay 30 per cent on all monies owned it.

It advised institutions, property owners and
other businesses to leave previous receipt of any payment of revenue behind
when leaving their premises for their own interest to avoid any embarrassment.  

Mr Gilbert Nii Ankrah, the Public Relations
Officer of the Assembly, who made this known to the Ghana News Agency in Accra,
said they had embarked on a special Revenue Mobilisation exercise to collect
all monies from their defaulters.

He said the AMA would not relent in it its
efforts to improve and ensure maximisation of revenue to meet its development
targets.

Mr Ankrah said the Local Government Act 936
mandates the Assemblies to institute penalties on all monies owned them and
called on individuals and corporate institutions to abide by the decision to
enhance development in the city.

“People should not see the collection of
tolls, rates, and other monies by the Assemblies as a form of punishment since
such monies would be used for the construction of roads, markets, schools and
the provision of other social amenities,” he said.

Mr Ankrah said property owners should note
that the AMA revenue collectors would be working during early hours of the day
and on weekends to ensure efficient revenue generation to improve the living
conditions of the people.
