The National Lottery Authority (NLA) has explained why it terminated a broadcasting contract with Ghana Television (GTV).
According to a press release issued by the Authority’s management, one of the reasons for contract termination is value for money.
Several attempts to help correct the situation, according to the NLA, were futile because GTV management refused to honor its invitations.
“Management of GTV never showed up for any meeting after several invitations through its technical crew neither did engagements with the technical crew yield any results.”
“NLA, therefore, decided to terminate the contract in accordance with the provisions of Clause 15.0,11.1a of the Contract between GBC and NLA which enjoins any of the parties with the right of termination.”
“It is instructive to note that since NLA’s official letter to terminate its contract with GTV in August 2021, (effective November 30, 2021) GTV did not respond to the letter nor take any steps to engage NLA, an indication that the latter may not be interested in the subject matter.”
“Management would therefore like to state that neither NLA nor the Director-General, Mr Samuel Awuku is interested in sabotaging GTV’s business interest as is being purported.”
The statement was issued in response to allegations made by ace broadcaster Kwasi Kyei Darkwah (KKD) that Sammy Awuku unilaterally cancelled the contract.
