Lotto Writers in the country, have kicked vehemently against the 10percent commission reduction paid to them after every transaction.
They said, they won’t accept the reduction which has been slashed from 30percent to 20percent, arguing that the current economic conditions does not favour such reduction.
The 10percent reduction, has since taken effect and was announced by the Ghana Lotto Operators Association ( GLOA).
Although, the reduction has started kicking in , the lotto writers have since agitated towards the implementation.
They are therefore asking the National Lottery Authority ( NLA) to do something about this reduction.
They contend that, since the writing of lotto was introduced, their commission has always been pegged at 30percent and could not see how a government which cannot increase the percentage margin will want to reduce it.
Pouring out their anger yesterday at a stakeholders engagement with other Lotto Unions in Accra , the Executive Secretary of Concerned Lotto Agents Association of Ghana ( CLAAG), Mr Kweku Duah-Tawiah, expressed the hope that an amicable solution to the problem at hand will be reached.
“ If however by Friday, 11th November, 2022 the matter has not been resolved CLAAG will again invite its members to reconvene and decide on its next line of action”, he warned.
