Uche Nnaji: It Is Unfair To Preach Against Runs Girls & Not Address BET/Gambling by MediahelmNGR: 10:09pm On Dec 04
Fashion Designer, Uche Nnaji says it should be worrisome to everyone that many young men now want to engage in betting/gambling instead of working hard to eke a living.

In a post shared on his Facebook page this evening, Nnaji said that as much as religious bodies preach against girls doing runs, they should also speak up against this new trend of able-bodied men, particularly in Lekki Phase 1, doing nothing but waiting to gamble. Read what he wrote below

A new epidemic is gradually rising and ravaging the youthfulness of our ideal youths , it is not CODEIN, TRAMADOL, MONKEY TAIL or any of those drugs that’s some Nigerian pop stars exalt in their music. This new epidemic stealthily ravaging our youths is something that growing up as a lad in Assemblies of God Church in Olodi-Apapa, Pastors preached against gambling and POOL playing. This was actually frowned upon as it was seen as promoting LAZINESS and GREED . But today the same POOL that was a past time of OLD-Retired Men has become a mainstay for majority of able bodied Nigerian male youth population.
Come to Admiralty in Lekki 1 and see how any space with a BETTING sign is packed with people standing outside waiting for their turn to PLAY.
The irony in all of this is that the POOR /Simple-minded remain the victim as with little as #100, they say a little prayer and BETs with the HOPE of a miraculous breakthrough.
.
The Govt may not know the monster it is breeding as their interest may just be the TAX collected from these BETting houses, but I believe the “Religious bodies “ have a role to play in curtailing this cancerous trend eating deep into the core fabric of our youths. I have already encouraged few of my pastor friends to start speaking up against this because it is unfair to preach against “Runs” girls and not address the “BET “ /Gambling Boys because one thing drives both...GREED.
Anyway let me close my mouth before they will say asides FASHION & STYLE what else does he know sef .

I concur.
Any man who plays sports betting is worse than an infidel but the one who depends on it for his livelihood is even less than a fool.

I agree with him in totality the rare at which betting houses spring up this days is so alarming.
The OP should be flogged for the title he gave to this article.
Our government is the major cause of this nonsense, most of the youth who venture into this betting of a thing have no intention to, but due to the rate of unemployment and idleness, which is as a result of failure from our leaders, majority of our youth venture into this betting they have nicknamed youth self empowerment.

Joblessness is the main cause of those things.
The government should create employment opportunities to curb it.
I don't know why they will be building and funding churches and religious houses instead of building companies that will create jobs.

it's also unfair preaching against "hoeing" or rather "oloshorism" without talking about womanizing. Nowadays boys boast of the girls "they've gone down with" please it's disgusting.

To Bet is to have less faith on your future and the quality of your hardwork. It is no risk but a dependence on the element of luck and surprises. It can push you to a starting point of success but will only return you to where you first started. A CIRCUS!

I don't see where the problem is here, government is even earning revenue from taxing bet houses but churches are also business centers in disguise yet they don't get taxed.
Let government start taxing all church and mosque buildings too, then maybe we can consider if these religious institutions have the moral justification to open their mouth and talk about bet related issues. angry

prostituting require that you use your body as source of making money,yahoo plus boys and other occult money making people can contact you and in the process used you for making money,this should never be compared with the process of using your money to stake that your favourite football club will win a particular match.they are never the same and only a fool will try to compare them as the same.

rather prostituting should be compare with a thief because your are putting your body as risk to make money and if caught is death just as if an ashawo wrongly enter bad hands is death.




these is nothing wrong with betting....something that has over 80 options to chose from in a particular match.

What does a runs girl even do? Is it paying off? I don't see any man who is able to give more N10,000 per service unless they are consentually dating. This way it is not runs. No?
