NLA trains NABCO recruits on E-Kiosk Assembling

The National Lottery Authority (NLA) in collaboration with the Nation Builders Corps (NABCO) Secretariat and experts from overseas have offered training services to about 36 NABCO recruits at the premises of NLA on a technology transfer and assembling procedures for the solar-powered E-Kiosks. Due to its commitment to the local content and local participation law in Ghana, the NLA reached a consensus with the NABCO secretariat to train their recruits for the assembling E-Kiosks. The training of the first batch started on February 18, 2019 with 20 participants. After the successful training of the first batch, Mohammed Yahaya from Ada, was adjudged the overall best trainer, with Tuffour Nicholas from Sunyani and Doreena Alaliga Bawa from Tamale adjudged first runner-up and second runner-up respectively. The second batch of the training also started from February 25 with 16 participants. After the successful training of the second batch, Azoteyinne Joshua from Bolgatanga was adjudged overall best trainer. Atanga Michael Atadena from Bolgatanga and Twum Maxwell from Techiman were first runner-up and second runner-up respectively. The criteria used for the selection of the best trainers by the training officials were hardwork, commitment to duty, discipline, efficiency, effectiveness, smartness and attention to details. The NABCO recruits were selected from all the regions of Ghana and they would be useful in training other trainees on the E-Kiosk Assembling Technology Transfer in their respective Regions, Cities, Districts and Polling Stations. It means that the E-Kiosk Assembling Technology Transfer would be decentralized across the country, thereby creating jobs for the local economy. The NABCO trainers were very excited about the training programme and showed demonstrable competence to transfer the E-kiosk technology to yet-to-be recruited trainees. The trainers were highly impressed and showered praises on the management of the National Lottery Authority and the NABCO Secretariat for such a wonderful and pragmatic training initiative and collaboration. In line with the vision of President Nana Akufo-Addo’s government to economically, socially and financially empower Ghanaians, the National Lottery Authority collaborated with the NABCO Secretariat and Overseas Experts to train the NABCO recruits on the assembling techniques, processes and technology associated with the assembling of the solar-powered E-Kiosks. It was also to empower the NABCO recruits to appreciate and understand the operations and maintenance of the solar-powered E-Kiosks. The training of the NABCO recruits on the assembling of the E-Kiosks has helped to ensure the transfer of technology, among other reasons. The E-Kiosk Concept which is a Private Sector driven project would equally partner the Ghana Revenue Authority, commercial banks, One District One Factory Secretariat, MMDAs, insurance companies, Ghana Post Company Limited and other agencies to make revenue generation and collection convenient in the country. The E-kiosk would help to offer a wide range of services such as Lottery Products, Banking Services, Western Union, MoneyGram, Mobile Money Transactions, Payment of Utility Bills, Payment of DSTV and GO TV Fees, Courier Services etc. The National Lottery Authority through private partnership is expected to roll out about 40, 000 solar-powered E-kiosks across the Country.
