The Director-General of the National Lottery Authority (NLA) has expressed his disappointment with ace broadcaster Kwasi Kyei Darkwah (KKD) over his comments on the GTV-NLA contract.
Sammy Awuku said KKD commented on the issue from an uninformed position.
The former National Organiser of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) said KKD could have called him for explanation on the issue.
“I think that he was unfortunately misinformed. I have no doubt. He said I am his kid brother and I think nothing stops him from calling me to verify what he has heard.”
“I have spoken about this before that because it is the state broadcaster, I don’t want to discuss them so much. I have so much respect for the GBC and what they do,” Mr Awuku said on Peace FM.
According to the NLA, value for money is part of the reasons for the termination of the contract.
“Management of GTV never showed up for any meeting after several invitations through its technical crew neither did engagements with the technical crew yield any results.”
“NLA, therefore, decided to terminate the contract in accordance with the provisions of Clause 15.0,11.1a of the Contract between GBC and NLA which enjoins any of the parties with the right of termination,” portion of the release from NLA said.
