Naija Lottery Apologises To Customers For Service Disruption, Resumes Operation

The management of Naija lottery, the trademark of international lottery and gaming limited in Nigeria has described as unfortunate the interruption of its services in Lagos recently.
The leading Betting, Racing and Video Lottery operator in Nigeria, apologised to its customers and other stakeholders attributed the disruption to “certain unresolved conflicts between state and federal regulatory authorities”.
The company, who apologised to stakeholders in a statement made available to journalists, stated that it has taken steps to avoid a similar incidence in future even as it restored the interstate lottery in Lagos.
According to the statement, “Our company has taken steps to protect itself and other stakeholders from future service disruption. We have restored our interstate lottery in Lagos and assure the general public that we are operating within the full ambit of the law”. It continued, “International lottery and gaming takes this opportunity to categorically state that we are a law-abiding organisation committed to good corporate governance, transparency, and accountability. Our unique lottery and gaming services are accessible from any part of Nigeria and we are committed to international best practices.”
Speaking at the commissioning of the Lagos office in Jibowu area of Yaba, Director General of the Nigeria Lottery Regulatory Commission (NLRC), Mr. Adolphus Joe Ekpe had disclosed that Naija Lottery met all the requirements for the commission to give it operating licence adding that the company was given a license last year and now they are starting their operation.
While commending Naija Lottery for the feat, Ekpe stated that the project would create employment for Nigeria because lottery creates employment.
He affirmed that those, who would market the tickets, were working for the company and that it would create income because those, who play stand the chance of winning.
Naija Lottery stated that it was offering two games: the popular 5/90 with 5 daily draws and the newly introduced instant game 1/36, which will offer additional excitement to Nigerian players and begin operations with 1500 Points of Sales, which will increase to 10,000 within the first one year of operations in Nigeria.
