Head of Public Relationship Officer (PRO) at the National Lottery Authority (NLA), Mr Razak Kojo Opoku, has described as complete fabrications mischievous and factually incorrect the remours going round that he takes home a whopping of GH¢25,000 as a
monthly salary at NLA.
“For the record, I, Razak Kojo Opoku do not take a monthly salary of GH¢ 25,000 as an employee of NLA. Not even Directors of NLA take such amount of salary. Well, anyone is permitted to cross check from the NLA,” he explained.
He called on general public to disregard the claim of him taking a monthly salary of GH¢ 25,000 as an employee of NLA, saying that the allegations levelled against him was a calculated attempt by his enemies to destroy his hard won reputation.
In a press statement copied to Bizzygh.com today Thursday April 15, 2021, Mr Opoku stressed that it is only a downgraded fool who will believe that an employee of NLA can stake lotto, adding thatNLA Staff are not permitted to play or stake Lotto of any kind.
He asked that If an employee of NLA do so it is criminal under Act 722 and Legislative Instrument (LI) 1948, and as such, that employee would be arrested and prosecuted accordingly.
According to him, since the establishment of NLA(previously DNL) there is no person in Ghana who has been able to win lottery of GH¢ 200,000 every week, adding that the “Superhuman beings cannot even achieve that.”
He asked that “Where is the employment letter that indicate that I received 25,000 Ghana Cedis as monthly salary?Where are the Winning Tickets and the Bank Transactions that indicate that I have been winning lottery prize of 200,000 Ghana Cedis every week?
Mr Opoku who doubles as the founder and President of Concerned Voters Movement (CVM) therefore, stated that all such allegations levelled against “me are complete foolishness, and I urge Ghanaians to totally and wholly ignore such fabrications.”
He stated categorically that the
attempts to incite New Patriotic Party (NPP) Footsoldiers/Grassroots against me shall fall flat, arguing that It is an outmoded strategy.
