If they did not honour your invitation again, we will ask the National Lottery Commission to seal their offices, declared.

Ogba, who noted that the Senate was making efforts to assist the lottery commission to generate money for the federal government, said, “We want to see bet9ja. They can’t runaway,”

According to Senator Ogba, their verification  followed series of complains against the betting companies, adding that some do not even have offices, while others have not been making remittances to the government.

He stated  that while verifying, about 20 betting companies, which  honoured Senate invitation, “got their  licenses but  are not operating. The new regulation only gave them one year to start operations.
