RE: Alpha Lotto Not Among ‘NLA’s Illegal Lottery Operators’ – NLA

Published

on

The National Lottery Authority(NLA) has taken notice of the above statement emanating from the Management of Alpha Lotto Limited.

Management of the National Lottery Authority(NLA) would like to state categorically that,
1. Alpha Lotto Limited was ONLY Licensed by NLA to operate Lotto under the Veterans Administration, Ghana Act, 2012(Act 844) dated 1st day of July 2020 regulated by Act 722.

2. Alpha Lotto Limited under the TERMS and CONDITIONS of the License issued by NLA to the Company has NO RIGHT to operate its OWN GAMES without Authorization from the National Lottery Authority(NLA) as the Regulator of the Lottery Industry. As it stands now, Alpha Lotto Limited has NO APPROVAL from NLA to operate its own games. There are processes, procedures, criteria and requirements an Operator must fulfill BEFORE it can operate its own games under strict compliance to the rules and regulations of the National Lottery Authority(NLA).

3. Alpha Lotto Limited has NO RIGHT under the License issued to the Company to operate its own independent platform without approval from the National Lottery Authority(NLA) as the Regulator.

Every Licensed Operator under Act 844 is mandated to INTEGRATE its platform into the NLA’s Platform for Monitoring and supervision of their activities as part of the TERMS and CONDITIONS of the License issued. This would enable both parties to properly account for the Revenue Sharing Agreement in accordance with the Terms and Conditions of the License issued to Alpha Lotto Limited and all Lotto Operators Licensed by NLA under Act 844.

4. Alpha Lotto Limited has NO RIGHT under the TERMS AND CONDITIONS of its License under Act 844 to market its games through short code 896. Alpha Lotto Limited is seriously in breach of the Terms and conditions of its license under Act 844. There is no where in the Agreement that Alpha Lotto Limited can market its games through short code.

5. There is nowhere in the agreement that Alpha Lotto Limited can conduct its own independent Draw without supervision from the National Lottery Authority(NLA).

As part of the agreement, Terms and Conditions of the license issued under Act 844, a Draw Committee must be constituted by the NLA to monitor all Draws. So far no Draw Committee has been constituted by NLA to supervise the Draws of Alpha Lotto Limited.

We would like to state again that, Alpha Lotto Limited has NO LEGAL RIGHTS under Act 844, the license issued to the Company by NLA to market independent lottery products using digital devices(end-to-end).

The Authority would like to caution Alpha Lotto Limited to operate within the Terms and Conditions of its License issued under Act 844 and stop hiding behind its license under Act 844 to operate illegal services as well as misinforming the general public.

The Authority would like to further caution Alpha Lotto Limited to cease the LIVE DRAW on GTV, and Stop the operation of the digital short code *896# with immediate effect. Failure to comply with the directives of the Authority would attract the necessary sanctions including revocation of the company’s license under Act 844.

I wish you well, Kuffour to Musah Superior on his General Secretary bid – ghanapublisher.com

Published

on

The Former President of the Republic of Ghana, His Excellency John Agyekum Kuffour has wished Hon. Iddrisu Musah affectionately called Musah Superior well on his bid to become the next National General Secretary of the ruling party, New Patriotic Party (NPP).

The former Tamale Mayor who is currently the Deputy C.E.O of Ghana Forestry Commission paid a courtesy call on the former president at his Peduase Residence to officially inform him about his bid to contest for the NPP’s National General Secretary Position in the upcoming elections.

Musah Superior explained and detailed to the Ex- President the nature of his campaign themed “The Peoples’s Campaign”.

Ex – President Kuffour was delighted and fascinated about the nature and content of the Peoples’s Campaign.

He wished him well and blessed him.

Below are the 10 points plan of the Peoples’s campaign.

1. As GS, l will operate meaningfully at the Party HQ. The Party will no longer be managed from the private offices and homes of some persons. I will lead in running an active, professional and hugely political HQ. I will not run the Party in absentia.

2. I will mange the Party from bottom to top. This means l will pay serious attention to the local structures of the party. I believe that if we pay attention to the polling stations and resource the Constituency Executives, we will enhance our strength.

3. I will formulate and publish a six monthly ACTIVITY PLAN. This means that l will be busy in the country side on a formal work schedule. Regional and Constituency ACTIVITY PLAN will fit into the plan of the HQ.

4. I will ensure that officers, communicators, etc are REWARDED. It is absurd that we do not have an award scheme for people who have worked so hard for our victory. I ll ensure that we add value to our officers and volunteers. This is not rocket science!

5. Establish a WORKING welfare scheme for all officers of the Party.

6. Revive the demotivated Communications Directorate of the Party. All communicators at all levels must have a reason to continue to advocate for the Party. I ll put a plan in place to “look” after them. I will also support the Directorate to recruit brilliant communicators from the Regions and constituencies and offer them opportunities to feature on programmes “reserved” for certain class of persons. We must find innoviative ways of making our communication effective, convincing and pointful. This mean we must consult widely and use the wealthy brains of the Party people.

7. I will lead in constantly articulating the excellent work the NPP government is doing. We must articulate loudly our achievements and challenge any propaganda intended to undermine out grear efforts. Winning elections 2024 will depend largely on the achievements of our government.

8. As GS, l will ensure that ALL internal elections are free, fair, transparent and credible. ALL parliamentary primaries shall be OPENED to all. No needless disqualifications.

9. Our Party is run by Committees. (Steering Committee, National Executive Committee, National Council and the National Delegates Conference/Congress). As GS, l will become the most functional officer of the Party and shall work to the directions of the Committees.

10. Discipline brings stability and meaning into a person or institution. It teaches us to be responsible and respectful.The observance of well-defined rules in any organisation is critically important for the growth and development of the organisation. Discipline promotes good human behavior, stronger and focussed regime. We need to instil this important virtue into our Party. l will supervise a disciplined Party.
