Court halts Vodafone’s “Mooore Money” promotion
An Accra Fast Track High Court on Wednesday restrained Vodafone Ghana Limited, their agents, assigns and servants from promoting, sponsoring and advertising the ongoing promotion dubbed “Mooore Money.”
It, however, ordered the National Lotto Authority (NLA) to give an undertaking within 21 days indicating that if at the end of the trial it turned out that the promotion was a game of chance the authority would pay adequate compensation to Vodafone.
The court presided over by Justice Dennis Adjei in his ruling on an interlocutory injunction did not award any cost.
This was after Mr Kojo Graham, counsel for NLA, had moved a motion before the court after attempts to have the matter settled amicably with Vodafone had broken down.
The National Lottery Authority (NLA) took Vodafone Ghana Limited, one of the nation’s communication giants, to court over its “Mooore Money” promotion.
Joined in the suit are the Gaming Commission and two of its officials, Mr Peter Yeboah and Mr Kofi Ahinkorah.
In the motion filed by NLA, it is seeking an order restraining Vodafone and their agents, servants and assigns from promoting, sponsoring and advertising the ongoing purported promotion dubbed “Mooore Money”.
