The National Lottery Regulatory Commission (NLRC) has been urged to abide with the Lottery Regulatory Commission Act, 2005, by the House of Representatives, which has decided to outlaw sports betting nationwide.
At Thursday’s plenary in Abuja, Rep. Kelechi Nwogu (PDP-Rivers) adopted a motion, which was followed by the resolution.

It was previously reported by the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that 60 million Nigerians between the ages of 18 and 40 bet on sports.

In addition, Nwogu said that it had resulted in stress or strained relationships because of people lying or stealing from friends and family, as well as financial difficulties, legal troubles, and job loss because of excessive debt or loss.

He declared, “Betting has led to an increase in crime and ultimately suicide.”

He insisted on the necessity of campaigning.
