Over the past 22 months there has been a waging war between the private lotto operators and the National Lottery Association. The impasse thickened after a contract was given to KGL to run live draws online. This move has been rejected by the private lotto operators as bad for their business. They have even sought hearing from the president.
“The government must step in immediately about these issues. This is the same thing that happened under another administration and it cost that government the elections so Akufo-Addo must step in. I just don’t understand why this has become a national discourse for 2 months and yet still the government has been silent.
At least the government must intervene and listen to the private lotto operators. The contract that was given to KGL must be looked. The private lotto operators are claiming the contract will bring losses and at least the government must listen to them. It might seem that elections are far, but they are close. Nana Addo must be cautious because this can cause us our next elections” Abronye said.
It can be recalled that the NLA is alleged to have given a contract to a company called KGL to run live draws online. This is problematic because the private lotto operators or those who sit in lotto stores feel this will hinder their business as people will not patronize their spots anymore. They have for some weeks been seeking hearing from the president to nullify the contract given to KGL.
According to Abronye, if this is left unchecked it can cost the Akufo-Addo government in the next elections. He pleaded with the government to hear from the private lotto operators and find a solution to their grievances.
