Lotto Agents Association of Ghana ready to work with NLA



The Executive Secretary of the Concerned Lotto Agents Association of Ghana (CLAAG), Mr. Kwaku Duah-Tawiah has made known the readiness of members of the association to work with the National Lottery Authority (NLA).


According to Mr. Kwaku Duah-Tawiah, members of the CLAAG are not nation wreckers and are willing to work with the NLA, particularly on the Authority's agenda to make its presence visible and accessible in every nook and cranny of the country.


He said these when he, together with some lotto agents paid a courtesy call on the Director-General of the NLA, Hon. Kofi Osei-Ameyaw to discuss issues pertaining to the association.


The visit by CLAAG follows call by Hon. Osei-Ameyaw to all lottery operators who are not licensed by NLA to come on board.


During the discussion, Mr. Kwaku Duah-Tawiah also stated that the over two hundred thousand lotto agents who are operating outside the laid down structures could contribute huge sums of revenue to the consolidated fund if they are properly regulated and provided with Point of Sale Terminals to work with.


The Director-General of NLA, Hon. Kofi Osei-Ameyaw reiterated that NLA is not out to witch-hunt the illegal lottery operators but only want them to operate within the National Lotto Act, 2006 (ACT 722) which mandates NLA to regulate, supervise and conduct National Lotto, and its related matters.


He said the NLA is able to access and provide Point of Sale Terminals for all members of CLAAG and requested them to submit a proposal to the Authority for further discussions.
