If they did not honour our invitation, we will ask the National Lottery Commission to seal their offices,” he said.

The chairman explained that the verification followed a series of complaints against the betting companies, adding that ”some don’t even have offices while others have not been making remittances to the government.” ”Some got the licences but they are not operating. The new regulation only gives them one year to start operations,” he noted.
