2013 YEAR END GOODWILL MESSAGE
Adolphus Joe Ekpe, Director-General

 

As 2013 draws to a close, let us thank the Almighty God for keeping us well and enabling us to meet some of our targets amidst stiff challenges.  With Nigeria and its citizens depending on the Commission to turn around the lottery industry, all staff must put our hands on deck across the nation to ensure that the lottery industry in Nigeria experiences significant growth and development in the New Year 2014. With the level of support I have received from all staff, Management and the Governing Board of the Commission since my assumption of duty as Director General, I am upbeat that we shall continue to perform even better.

During the year, we consulted widely as a team and maintained a productive working relationship that allowed us to conclude amicably the negotiations with the relevant stake holders on the plethora of litigations that threatened our very existence. I am happy to share with you that we made significant progress in clearing them by over 50%.

In this year, we secured a stay of the enforcement of the Constance Shareholders’ adverse judgment entered against the Commission. This action from the court of appeal has restored the commission’s right to carry out its statutory mandate. 

In addition  to  this, the judgment secured by Eko Supreme Ltd against the Commission was successfully set aside paving the way for our Enforcement and Compliance team to carry out their jobs without hindrances. We will continue to reach out to all stake holders in order to resolve all outstanding litigations in the interest of the Commission and the industry.

A more conducive working environment has been created through the provision of an alternative power source to complement the current electricity supply channel. Worthy of mention is the substantial payments of arrears of staff salaries and benefits.  Outstanding promotional/confirmation exams have been conducted successfully to enable deserving staff move to the next levels in their career.     

As we reflect on the significant achievements we have all made, we should remain focused on meeting the targets we set as a result of the just concluded management retreat. I also wish to observe that in our continued effort to improve operational efficiency, key management staff should not rest during the holidays as they are expected to communicate  a road map to all early in the New Year.

Finally, as we approach the festive season, I am pleased to convey my warm greetings and best wishes to all and sundry. I urge you to use the occasion to pray for continued peace in our country Nigeria. Enjoy and share with the less fortunate, your families and friends within reasonable bounds.

 Merry Christmas and a Happy New year, 2014

 

Adolphus Joe Ekpe

Director-General,

National Lottery Regulatory Commission
