The National Lottery Authority (NLA) through its new jackpot game known as Daywa has empowered Mr Francis Pwalua, a 64-year-old farmer from Navrongo in the Upper East Region of Ghana.

Mr Francis Pwalua received a cheque of GHC 126,000 as the ultimate winner for Daywa 5/39 jackpot game for which he won with only GHC 2.

The Daywa jackpot is a new game that was launched on November 26, 2019 by the NLA.

A statement signed by the Public Relations Unit of the NLA said the Authority under the leadership of Mr Kofi Osei-Ameyaw, the Director-General has introduced many exciting new Games to support the revenue generation capacity of the Authority alongside the original 5/90 Lottery Game. 

It said the NLA has successfully rolled out the NLA VAG 5/90 Lottery in collaboration with the Veterans Administration Ghana (VAG), the Daywa 5/39 in collaboration with Luckweb Ghana Limited, the Lucky 3 in collaboration with Keed Ghana Limited and the 787 Game in collaboration with Wotiriye Lottery. 

The statement further stated that by the end of 2020, the Authority will introduce and implement more new games in order to expand its revenue mobilization to support National Development.

It said within the last three years, the Authority has achieved a lot and would continue to work hard in accordance with the vision of President Akufo-Addo and the Ghana Beyond Aid Agenda.

The statement congratulates Mr Pwalua for winning the Daywa game and urged him to use the money for the benefit of himself, family and society.
