SENATE THREATENS TO SEAL BET9JA OFFICES (SEE REASONS)

0

The Senate Committee on Youths and Sports on Tuesday threatened to ask the National Lottery Commission to seal the offices of a betting firm, Bet9ja, if the company fails to honour its invitation the second time.

The committee’s chairman, Obinna Ogba, said this during the verification of Lotto companies operating in Nigeria.

He described the firm’s decision not to honour the invitation extended to it as unfortunate.

While asking the clerk to invite the firm again, the senator declared, “If they did not honour our invitation again, we will ask the National Lottery Commission to seal their offices.”

He said the verification was organised following a series of complaints against betting firms in the country.

He noted that while some do not have offices, some others have not been making remittances to the government.

About 20 betting firms appeared before the committee on Tuesday.
