www.nigeriansbet9janigerians.com react on social media have
reacted to the threat by the Senate
to shutdown sports betting
company, Bet9ja offices if it failed
to honour its invitation for a
second time.
We had reported that the
lawmakers issued the threat on
Tuesday in Abuja during the
verification of Loto companies with
license to operate in Nigeria.
Chairman, Senate committee on
Youth and Sport, Senator Obinna
Ogba, PDP, Ebonyi, noted that it
was unfortunate that Bet9a refused
to honour their invitation.
He said, “Clerk, write to Bet9ja
again. If they did not honour your
our invitation again, we will ask
the National Lottery Commission to
seal their offices.”
Senator Ogba further stated that
the Senate was making efforts to
assist the lottery commission to
generate money for the federal
government, saying, “We wanted
to see bet9ja. They can’t runaway.”
Below are some comments
gathered by us from Twitter:
@naijatalkers, “They should
attempt it and see whether Naija
youths won’t shut down the NASS.
If you are with me kindly like and
retweet for quick follow back
@seemarkmark, “No need for the
threats. Just do it.”
@PrinceBensonJr1, “It is a pity.
Same happens in Nigeria where
Nigerian Senate would neglect the
things that would bring strength
and light to the citizens they would
be moving motion of closing down
bet9ja. It is well daddy. Africa needs
helpThe Nigerian senate wants to
cancel Bet9ja but someone that
owns a betting company is now a
law maker. Opportunity meets
preparation.”
