The Bono Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kwame Baffoe, has expressed his disapproval over how the government was handling the impasse between the Association of Private Lotto Operators and the National Lottery Authority (NLA).
According to him, a similar lackadaisical attitude towards an impasse between private lotto operators and the NLA made the NPP lose power in the 2008 election.
He warned that the NPP may suffer a similar fate if the current wrangling between players in the lotto industry was not resolved quickly.
“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,” he said on UTV’s “Adekye Nsroma.”
“It might seem that elections are far, but they are close. Nana Addo must be cautious because this can cost us our next elections,” he added.
There has been a raging battle between the private lotto operators and the NLA over a contract awarded to KGL to run live draws online.
According to the private lotto operators, the move was inimical to their survival and petitioned the president to intervene.
Some of the private operators pointed fingers at persons at the Flagstaff House as being behind the award of the contract to KGL.
