Private lottery operator pays GH¢1,000,000 as operating licence fees to NLA

Founder and Executive Chairman of Ghana National Chamber of licenced Banker-to-Banker Lotto Operators and Agents with its headquarters in Kumasi, Ashanti Region, Mr. Frank Adjei, has successfully submitted GH¢1,000,000 (One Million Ghana Cedis) to the National Lottery Authority (NLA) as licence fees for the operation of banker-to-banker lottery.

These are some of the excellent, innovative and pragmatic policies that have been introduced by the Director-General of NLA, Mr. Kofi Osei-Ameyaw, and the board of NLA to generate revenue to support national socio-economic development and growth in the country.

Speaking in an interview with Today on Friday, March 16, 2018 Mr Adjei noted that he paid the money to NLA on Thursday, March 15, 2018 as lotto commercial licence fee to meet the deadline of April 2018.

He allayed the fears of the public that operators of banker-to-banker lottery were not genuine, calling on Ghanaians to disregard those rumours, and rather patronise the products of private lottery.

“Don’t fear banker-to-banker lottery, because we are genuine private lottery operators who aim at generating revenue for the country,” he told Today.

Mr Adjei, who is now operating in the Central, Western, Brong Ahafo and Ashanti Regions, encouraged all operators and agents of private lottery to take advantage of this laudable policy by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s government for the lotto business.

“We equally commend Kofi Osei-Ameyaw for bringing us on board under the Public-Private Partnership (PPP) so that we can also contribute significantly to support government.
