The Founding President and Chief Executive Officer of IMANI Centre for Policy and Education, a think tank of global repute dedicated to the promotion of the institutions of a free society across Africa, Mr. Franklin Cudjoe has in a tweet thrown shots at the National Lottery Authority (NLA) after they were involved in money laundering scandal that was aired by JoyNews and Multimedia Group Limited.
Yesterday, November 18, Multimedia Group Limited and JoyNews aired a documentary of the National Lottery Authority (NLA) robbing the state of $10million through the procurement of Point Of Sales (POS) devices.
In the documentary, the team gathered evidence that the contract for the supply of 30,000 POS devices for the NLA should have cost less than half of the contract sum of $25 million through their Director General, Hon Kofi Osei Ameyaw.
This documentary has caused a lot of uproar among Ghanaians as they were surprised at the level of money laundering scandal happening under the Nana Addo led administration.
The National Lottery Authority has come out to respond to the documentary aired by Joynews saying the is no iota of truth in the documentary and that it is baseless.
It is also never true that the National Lottery Authority has procured 30, 000 Android Point of Sale Terminals.
The Public Procurement Authority gave approval to the Authority to procure 30,000 Point of Sale Terminals but according to the financial strength of the Authority only 5,000 out of the 30,000 Point of Sale Terminals have been purchased, the NLA P.R.O unit added.
The NLA also stated that the Public Procurement Authority gave approval to the Authority to procure 30,000 Point of Sale Terminals but according to the financial strength of the Authority only 5,000 out of the 30,000 Point of Sale Terminals have been purchased.
The NLA also made mention of the fact the their Director General, Hon Kofi Osei Ameyaw will sue the JoyNews and Multimedia Group Limited in the coming days as they call on Ghanaians to disregard this bogus documentary.
Franklin Cudjoe of IMANI in reacting to the news of the documentary said that the leaders at the National Lottery Authority (NLA) have won a jackpot after gambling with our taxes through the act of money laundering.
He finally asked that the leaders at the National Lottery Authority should be made to vomit the money they stole and the board be disbanded.
Here is what Franklin Cudjoe of IMANI had to say in his Tweet......
The National Lotteries Authourity has gambled with our taxes and its leaders won a jackpot. They should vomit the money and the NLA disbanded!!
