Non-Ghanaians always see opportunities in Ghana. Let’s look around, opportunities abound. Recently, three Chinese nationals set the internet blaze after they were spotted at a lotto kiosk staking lottery which clearly signal that we don't need a prophet to tell us that indeed the second battle against galamsey is yielding positive results seems they have been accused of aiding in destroying our water bodies.
The trend is gradually taking different dimensions, some school children together with some nurses are seeing this opportunity by considering lottery business as a venture to success.
Various photos of children putting on school uniforms are making waves on the internet after they were spotted in a lotto kiosk staking their lucky numbers to make cool money. Surprisingly they aren't the only people who have seen this opportunity in lottery but some Ghanaians nurses have joined the queue as well.
Social media users have received the photos with mixed reactions. Some are of the view that they're not surprise about the step taken by the nurses seems they are suffering due to unpaid allowance and the only means for them to survive is to become lotto stakers to enable them win some cash.
Others shared their thoughts tagging the move as a sabotage, making government unpopular telling the world that all isn't well in the system.
Could this be as a result of hardship, leading the school children with the Nurses to venture into that business? If so what is the probability of winning at the end of the day seems lotteries are games of chance. Your odds of winning are determined by a number of factors, including how many winning numbers or combinations you need to get and how many people are playing the game. The greater the number of ticket-holders, the less likely you are to walk away with a chunk of change.
My greatest worry is about the school children breaking the chain and now gambling, I think this should be considered because, gambling, betting, or the lottery most definitely are focused on the love of money and undeniably tempts people with the promise of quick and easy riches.
When this continues definitely we will lose the youth from the sight of God, seems the scripture always encourages us to stay away from attempts to "get rich quick", although the Bible does not specifically condemn gambling, betting, or the lottery, but warn us, however, to stay away from the love of money.
