The director general of the National Lottery Authority, Samuel Awuku, has been given the award for the Best Public Sector CEO of the Year 2022 at the 7th Ghana CEO Summit and Excellence Awards.
He was honoured for being a model of business excellence, illustrating leadership and vision, demonstrating high standards of ethical conduct and professionalism, promoting investment and job creation in Ghana, and making a positive impact to the business community in the public sector.
Awuku’s leadership in guiding the NLA to spearhead innovation and digitalisation across its various business operations for the growth and progress of the lottery industry in an ever-changing and dynamic global economy is immense.
Under Awuku’s leadership, the NLA now has global recognition, having positioned the authority and lottery companies in Ghana as strategic partners for other lottery bodies in the West Africa region, and with the NLA now exporting lottery products to other African countries.
The event which attracted the nation’s crème de la crème, presented the most astute captains of industry, spearheading and achieving transformation and success, not only in Ghana’s fledgling economy but also, in the wider context of ECOWAS and global business circles.
Other chief executive officers and business executives, cutting across industry, won awards in various categories.
MTN Ghana’s CEO Selorm Adadevoh was adjudged the overall Best CEO in the Private Sector.
