The National Lottery Authority (NLA) in collaboration with the Nation Builders Corps (NABCO) Secretariat and some experts from abroad have trained 36 NABCO personnel on technology transfer and assembling procedures for the solar-powered E-Kiosks.
The e-kiosk concept is a private sector initiative in partnership with the NLA which seeks to offer lottery products to the public through electronic means.
The authority has partnered 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 through the e-kiosks
The NABCO personnel, drawn from all the regions of Ghana, were trained on the assembling techniques, processes and technology associated with the assembling of the solar-powered E-Kiosks.
A statement from the NLA said the NABCO personnel were trained to appreciate and understand the operations and maintenance of the solar-powered E-Kiosks.
It said the NABCO personnel were expected to help the authority decentralise the new e-kiosk concept by training others on how to assemble and operate the kiosks
According to the statement, the NLA, through its private partners, would soon roll out about 40, 000 solar-powered E-kiosks across the country.
The statement said the NABCO Trainers showed demonstrable competence to transfer the E-kiosk technology to the yet-to-be recruited trainees.
