Represented by the Permanent Secretary Service Policy and Strategy Office in the Office of the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation Dr Abubakar Mohammed, the Head of Service urged management and staff of the commission to further redouble their efforts and step into the big league of revenue generating entities.

He said that in view of the dwindling price of crude oil, there was need to explore alternative sources of revenue.

Earlier, the Director General National Lottery Regulatory Commission, Adolphus Joe Ekpe, said that the Lottery awareness road walk was one of the strategies targeted at addressing the need for an aggressive drive to sensitize Nigerians on the presence of National Lottery Regulatory Commission as a regulator.

The exercise was aimed at educating Nigerians on the opportunities that abound in the untapped sector of the economy.
