Mahama date of birth wins cash for Kumasi lotto stakers

Some residents of Kumasi look forward to a bigger fortune in the National Weekly Lotto with ‘locked up’ numbers linked with former President Mahama.

Over the weekend lotto stakers at Moshie Zongo and other communities won massively, using the former President’s birth year, 1958.

Luv FM’s Kwasi Debrah went to town to find the euphoria surrounding the win, and anticipation for the next draw.

“If you don’t have money, you don’t have a say, if not for the lottery my daughter who has gotten nursing training admission, would’ve gotten pregnant,” overjoyed charcoal seller, Akua Laariba, expressed.

Her burden she said, has been banished by two ‘magic’ numbers, 19 and 58.


“When John Mahama came to Moshi Zongo, I went there and it was there [and] we were told of the year he was born and so we decided to stake it.

“I staked with 10 cedis and won  2,000 cedis. I’ve gone for another charcoal consignment and deposited 1,000 cedis in bank to cater for my daughter’s education,” she added.

Laariba is not the only celebrant. Ayishetu, a resident of Dekyemso who also heard a conversation about the number, decided to stake GHS5.
