Agency to part­ner NTA lot­tery ed­u­ca­tion

The Chair­man, Na­tional Lot­tery Reg­u­la­tory Com­mis­sion (NLRC), Damian Dodo, has so­licited for the strength­en­ing of re­la­tion­ship be­tween the agency and the Nige­rian Tele­vi­sion Author­ity (NTA), par­tic­u­larly in the area of lot­tery ed­u­ca­tion and pub­lic en­light­en­ment.

Dodo, who made the ap­peal, yes­ter­day, in Abuja dur­ing a cour­tesy visit to the man­age­ment of the or­gan­i­sa­tion, said such syn­ergy would fur­ther boost the op­er­a­tions of both agencies and gen­er­ate greater rev­enues.

“In the cause of our work and in­ter­face with the op­er­a­tions of Lot­tery in Nigeria, it has come to our no­tice that for the oper­a­tors both le­gal and il­le­gal to draw at­ten­tion to their games, they also need the me­dia to reach as many people as pos­si­ble so they of­ten come to advertise with NTA,” he added.

He also sought for the as­sis­tance of the me­dia agency in mon­i­tor­ing the ac­tiv­i­ties of the il­le­gal and non reg­is­tered oper­a­tors who de­fraud many Nige­ri­ans and dodge the nec­es­sary statu­tory pay­ments to govern­ment.

“When they come with any ad­vert that have lot­tery el­e­ments in it, the NTA can de­mand their reg­is­tra­tion sta­tus, and equally draw at­ten­tion of the Com­mis­sion to the case.”
