It has emerged that the Auditor-General is set to embark on in-house cleaning exercise in the coming days at the National Lottery Authority (NAL).
The exercise, 24NEWS.NEWS can authoritatively confirm, will focus on flushing out some NLA workers, who are due for retirement but have altered their ages to suit working at the authority.
Director of Sales, Mr. George Addo-Yobo, 24NEWS.NEWS can reveal, is a typical example of what sources described as age cheater at the authority.
The development has resulted in an uneasy calm within the walls of the NLA, which has seen the state’s revenue machinery grind almost to a halt.
Our sources say there seems to be a lot of age cheaters at the authority that demands the immediate attention of the Auditor-General and Public Service Commission.
According to sources at the NLA subsequently confirmed by an insider at Lots Services Ghana Limited, the NLA’s Director of Sales, Mr. George Addo-Yobo is past 60 years and still at post.
Mr. Addo-Yobo has been badmouthing Directors and employees and Service Providers to the Board Chairman and Director-General of NLA to win their favour.
Mr. Addo-Yobo, 24NEWS.NEWS was informed, orchastered the removal of Mr.David Lamptey, Acting Director of Legal and Shine Gbologa, the immediate Director of Sales.
These two were threat to Mr. George Addo-Yobo at the authority, especially Shine Gbologa.
The sources say the lifestyle of George Addo-Yobo is a very cunning one.
Again, Mr. Addo-Yobo, 24NEWS.NEWS was told, has been caught on tape informing people outside and within NLA that the Board Chairman and members of the Board have agreed to award him a five years contract to continue working at the authority after his compulsory retirement on 9th March 2019.
However, according to an ongoing investigation at the authority, Mr. Addo-Yobo was supposed to retired last year 2018.
The Board Chairman and members of the board have to tread cautiously and avoid implicating themselves, the public is waiting for the supposed five years contract to Mr. Addo-Yobo after his official retirement on the 9th of March 2019.
In the coming days, some Ghanaians are expected to petitioned the Auditor-General and Public service Commission on the age disparity of Mr. Addo-Yobo and his supposed five years contract extension at NLA.
