The National Lottery Regulatory Commission (NLRC) has resumed its campaign against underage gaming in Nigeria.
Lottery Commission continues campaign against underage gaming
The DG expressed serious concerns about the rise of underage gaming in Nigeria.
The Director General of the commission, Lanre Gbajabiamila, stated that this ongoing campaign will continue indefinitely, after expressing serious concerns about the rise of underage gaming in Nigeria.
The NLRC resumed the media campaign against underage gambling with adverts on radio, television and outdoor billboards.
The adverts, which are in four different languages (English, Hausa, Yoruba and pidgin) will educate Nigerians on the menace of underage gaming in the country.
The NLRC has also called on gaming companies to improve their KYC and consumer vetting; and to also run similar campaigns to discourage gambling by younger Nigerians.
As a huge part of the continuous sensitisation, the NLRC is also taking the campaign to social media where there are digital adverts on Facebook, Nairaland and Instagram.
