Nigerians 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.”

@OsagbemiAnthony, “Anybody that knows anybody, who also knows sombori in this 8th senate, should tell them that Nigerians may shut down the Red chamber before they shut down Bet9ja.”

@EgbaraChuks, “They should shut them down…it’s not profitable please.”

@cesc_angelo, “What’s the Nigerian Senate’s business with Bet9ja?.



@Abbeymovic, “Expect more thieves….”

@namohdbilyaminu, “Good work for Nigerians we Like this.”

@BOtunuga, “Dem nvr settle una 4 house?

@Taymi_J, “How dem wan make Guys take survive.”



@hrhgilbert, “I’m yet to win my targetted money.. Wait till after nations cup

@slimur, “Killers of joy.”



@SparksO26, “So the owner(s) hasn’t shaked them…

@ifizzy007, “Make una no try rubbish ooo

@Martinsohaks, “shut them down because it recking the lives of our youths, you can imagine a developed nation like US, has a ban on sports betting because they know its negative impact..



@NneomaEyibe, “please tell them to shut it already.”

@flokemite, “What about the Govt Agencies that’s supposed to collect and monitor the payments of such dues?

@EgbaraChuks, “U wey carry chains put 4 neck…who is the mad dogAbi is it bet money U use in buying those low budget chain for ur falling Destiny.”

our leaders are so funny and discreet. ..because many youth don't have time coming to cheer them on the road or run to them for irrelevant errands...instead they rather go to most bet centres to watch or stake games......with hope 100 bet can change life..our leaders are now becoming irritated. ....
a country where leaders are trying to pull down the youths....

Watch as lazy youths will come for their government with chainsaw.

Lol lazy yoooth!

you have no right to say Nigerian youths are lazy when the government didn't provide jobs. the few white collar jobs have been shared between their children.


bet9ja may not be the way but the government forced guys into it cus they have failed the youths.
