The Director-General of the National Lottery Authority (NLA) Sammi Awuku has assured the President of Ghana Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo of working closely with the Management and Board of the Authority to change the face of lottery in the country.

Mr. Awuku is expected to resign from his position as NPP National Organiser to take up the appointment which has been approved by the Council of State.

Mr. Awuku replaces Mr. Kofi Osei Ameyaw, who was directed by President Akufo-Addo on March 10, 2021, to hand over to the finance director, Ernest Morty upon his retirement. That directive was contained in a letter signed by the Secretary to the President, Nana Bediatuo Asante.

In a tweet thanking the President for reposing confidence in him, Sammi Awuku assured the President of working effectively to ensure a better NLA.

He said “Thank you Mr. President for the honor done me and the confidence reposed in me. I will work hard with the Board, Management, and Staff of the Authority to make you proud. To the teeming youth and supporters of the NPP, friends, and well-wishers across the divide, I say thank you”.

In the NPP’s first term in office, Mr. Awuku served as the Board Chairman of the Youth Employment Agency (YEA), a government agency that has the mandate to co-ordinate and facilitate employment opportunities for young people in Ghana.
