Accra, July 28, GNA - The National Lottery Authority (NLA) at the weekend organised a health walk for its staff along some principle streets of Accra to relieve stress and create awareness of its 50th Anniversary celebration.
The exercise began from the Aviation Social Centre through some streets and back to the centre.
Mr Kplolarli Gbologa, Acting Director of Corporate Planning and Sales of NLA said the exercise signified team building among its stakeholders and created an opportunity for the workers to socialise, and work together to help contribute to productivity.
He said the huge revenue generated by the Authority for government was due to the healthy body and sound mind of its staff.
“As the health walk had revitalised the energy of the staff, it will propel and commit them in the remaining year to deliver the targets set for 2012,” he added.
Mr Gbologa noted that as part of the celebration, other activities including a clean up campaign, regional float and media campaigns had been lined up.
He said there would be a grand durbar on September 29, at the Head Office in Accra and a thanksgiving service on October 6, at the Holy Trinity Cathedral Anglican Church in Accra.
The Authority was established by an Act of Parliament, National Lotto Act 722, in 2006 as one of the largest contributor to government's domestic revenue mobilization.
Its mission is to generate revenue for national development and the underprivileged through the creation and marketing of lottery and other responsible games of chance.
