Lottery agents and employees have expressed concern over the deteriorating supply of electricity.
General Secretary of the Lagos state chapter of the National Union of Lottery Agents and Employees, Mr Olatunde Gregory in an interview with Rockcity FM, said that erratic supply of electricity is a major challenge to the lottery business.
Gregory explained that lottery operation requires a 24-hour power supply to energize lottery equipment.
Lottery business, according to him is one of the highest employers of labour and has the potentials to generate huge revenue like crude oil exports.
For instance, Gregory said N30 billion was recently generated from lottery business, and proceeds used to buy sporting equipment for primary schools nationwide.
