THE NATIONAL Lottery Authority (NLA), in collaboration with the Nation Builders Corps (NABCO) secretariat and overseas experts, has offered training to about 36 NABCO recruits on the premises of NLA in technology transfer and procedures for assembling the solar-powered E-Kiosks.
The NLA, due to its commitment to the Local Content and Local Participation Law of Ghana, reached a consensus with the NABCO secretariat to train the trainers in the technology for assembling the E-Kiosks. This was contained in a released issued by the head of the Public Relations Unit of the NLA.
The training of the first batch of 20 trainers started on February 18, 2019 and ended on the February 21, 2019.
After the successful training of the first batch, Mr Mohammed Yahaya from Ada was adjudged the overall best trainer.
Mr Tuffour Nicholas from Sunyani and Doreen Alaliga Bawa from Tamale were first and second runners-up respectively.
The second batch of the training, involving 16 trainers, also started from February 25 to February 28, 2019.
After the successful training of the second batch, Mr Azoteyinne Joshua from Bolgatanga was adjudged overall best trainer. Mr Atanga Michael Atadena from Bolgatanga and Mr Twum Maxwell from Techiman were first and second runners-up respectively.
The criteria used for the selection of the best trainers by the training officials were hard work, commitment to duty, discipline, efficiency, effectiveness, smartness and attention to details.
The NABCO trainers were selected from all the regions of Ghana and would be useful in training other trainees in 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 decentralised across the country, thereby creating jobs for the local economy.
The NABCO trainers said they were very excited about the training program and showed demonstrable competence to transfer the E-kiosk technology to the yet-to-be recruited trainees.
They also praised the managements of the NLA and the NABCO secretariat for such a wonderful and pragmatic training initiative and collaboration.
The training of the NABCO Recruits on the assembling of the E-Kiosks has helped to; ensure the transfer of technology, promote the exchange of technical competencies, skills and knowledge acquisition, create sustainable jobs for the graduates under the NABCO Programme and adhere to the Local Content and Local Participation Law of Ghana.
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.
