Razak Kojo Opoku, president of the Relevant Voters Movement, sent a strong message to public officials seeking to denigrate state organizations, indicating that no place will be given to such people to run state organizations as personal property, especially under an Akufo-Addo government.

In an article published by the leader of the pressure group, he wonders why some people have been allowed to engage in certain acts that threaten the survival of the National Lottery Authority, adding that he has been attacked for to have tried to avoid the evils.

“Why should the NLA, as regulator and chief operator, have financial difficulties, and Banker to Banker Lotto operators prosper at the expense of the government?” It is highly unacceptable.

Why should a private lotto operator pay 30-40% commission to their writers / agents and the NLA would struggle to pay only 20% commission to their accredited lotto marketing companies? It’s sad.

Why should technical service providers be allowed to charge a 4-6% fee on gross NLA sales and not on the net? This arrangement needs to be reviewed.

Why should large contracts be signed by the former CEO without proper board approval? This clearly should not be the case, ”he asked among others.

Assin Central MP Kennedy Agyapong in a recent rant accused Razak Opoku of embarking on a venture to bring down lotto businesses.

But according to Razak, he is 100% committed to the president and the course of government and his ultimate goal is to ensure that the NLA respects its mandate and status as the state lottery regulator.

“These are some of the many issues that we do our best to resolve, but unfortunately we are rather under-attacked by people who should have even considered contacting the NLA for their side of things.

My 100% loyalty goes to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and all his representatives who champion the course to make the President’s job successful.

We will not allow public officials to run state organizations as if it were their personal property. Certainly not under President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

My 100% loyalty goes to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and all his representatives who champion the course to make the President’s work successful.

We all have a patriotic duty to support President Akufo-Addo to succeed.
