Breaking: Senate To Shutdown Bet9ja, See Why

 The Nigerian Senate has threatened to order the shutdown of the offices of popular betting company, Bet9ja, if the company fails to honour its invitation the second time.

Naija News reports that the chairman of the Senate Committee on Youths and Sports, Obinna Ogba, made this known during the verification of Lotto companies operating in Nigeria on Tuesday, May 14.

Senator Ogba, who represents Ebonyi Central at the Nigerian Senate on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Nigeria’s main opposition party, described Bet9ja’s decision not to honour the invitation extended to it as unfortunate.

“Clerk, write to Bet9ja again. If they did not honour our invitation, we will ask the National Lottery Commission to seal their offices,” he said.

The Ebonyi Central lawmaker said the Senate is making efforts aimed at assisting the Lottery Commission to generate money for the Federal Government.

”We want to see bet9ja. They can’t run away,” Senator Ogba said.

Senator Ogba explained that the verification followed series of complaints against the betting companies, adding that ”some don’t even have offices while others have not been making remittances to the government.”

”Some got the licences but they are not operating. The new regulation only give them one year to start operations,” he noted.

Meanwhile, Understands that about 20 other betting companies appeared before the Senate committee for the verification exercise earlier today.
