The leadership of the Concerned Northern Lotto Marketers and Retailers Association has rendered a sincere apology to Kofi Osei-Ameyaw, the Director-General of the Natonal Lottery Authority over an unfortunate statement issued by Nana Kofi Asabre, the Northern Regional Vice Chairman of the Lotto Marketing companies and Retailers Association in Tamale.
Nana Kofi Asabre, the Northern Regional Vice Chairman unilaterally organized a bogus press conference demanding the sacking of Kofi Osei-Ameyaw as the Director-General of NLA where the Concerned Northern Lotto Marketers and Retailers Association has thereby dissociated itself completely in a statement from the heedless press conference held by Nana Kofi Asabre against the NLA Boss.
“Nana Kofi Asabre’s press conference against the NLA Boss was born out of Malice, selfishness and ignorance of the National Lotto Act, 2006 (Act 722). We the concerned Northern Lotto Marketers and Retailers Association fully support Kofi Osei-Ameyaw, the NLA Boss over his transformational agenda for the Lottery Industry in Ghana”, the statement read.
The statement further read, “We strongly believe that Kofi Osei-Ameyaw has performed creditably well by expanding the Lottery Business to include the Banker-to-Banker Lotto Operators, Agents and Writers. This laudable initiative will generate more revenue for the Government, increase employment opportunities and, also ensure discipline and uniformity in the Lottery Industry.”
“We are urging the general public, President Akufo-Addo and the media to disregard the bogus unilateral press conference organized by Nana Kofi Asabre, the Northern Regional Vice Chairman of the Lotto Marketing Companies and Retailers Association. The Lottery Industry is too big to accommodate the Private Lotto Operators and Agents as well”, the lastly eleaborated.
