Unlicensed Promotional Games: Enugu Govt Warns

Listen to article

In adherence to the existing state laws regulating promotion and draw games, the Enugu State Government issues a stern warning to agencies, companies, and corporate bodies, along with their agents, that participating in promotional and charity games without proper clearance and permits could lead to sanctions.

The government reiterates its stance, demanding that all entities currently involved in promotional games and related activities in the state must promptly seek clearance and permits from the designated office overseeing gaming and lotto activities to avert potential repercussions.

Over the weekend, Prince Arinze Arum, the Executive Secretary of Enugu State Gaming and Lotto Commission, issued a statement condemning the unauthorized activities of numerous companies, agencies, and organizations across the state. The statement warns that a comprehensive list of offenders has been compiled, and non-compliance with seeking clearance may result in legal sanctions in accordance with the state’s laws.

He went on to call on promoters to consistently align their actions with state laws and professional ethics, assuring that the government would persist in partnering with all pertinent agencies and companies to enhance the state’s growth.

The statement reads in part: ‘The Enugu State Gaming and Lotto Commission has noted with displeasure the rate at which some companies and corporate bodies conduct promotional/charity draw games in the state without the necessary clearance and permission from the Commission.’

‘The Commission, therefore, wishes to notify the general public that henceforth, any company, representative of corporate bodies or their agents who intends to hold any form of promotional/charity draw games must first obtain a promotional permit from the Commission.’

‘All ongoing promotional/charity draw games and their promoters are by this notice directed to come to the Commission’s office at number 28 Okpara Avenue, Former CCB Building, First floor Left Wing, to regularize their operations.’

‘Please note that failure to comply with this directive will attract sanctions’.
