Operations Manager in charge of draw at the National Lottery Authority (NLA), Kwame Peasah, has debunked claims that NLA doesn’t have the required resources to pay winners of the lottery.
He stated that the delay in the payment of funds to some winners of the lottery can only be attributed to the huge amount of money that people won in the past few months.
He indicated that although some payments have been delayed for some time, measures have been put in place by the management of the National Lottery Authority which will help the agency to clear its arrears.
Speaking to UTV on Monday, November 29, 2021, Kwame Peasah said that the National Lottery Authority has paid 90 percent of its debt and is looking at paying the last 10 percent by the end of December 2021.
“ The Executive Director of the National Lottery Authority, Sammy Awuku, is also putting measures in place that will lead to the immediate release of funds to lottery winners in 2022,” he said.
He also urged winners who are still waiting for the release of their funds to exercise patience for a short while since the lottery agency is putting measures in place that will lead to the payment of arrears by the end of 2021.
