NIGERIA (December 2023) — It’s encouraging to learn from local media reports that gaming operators in Ibadan, Oyo State, are taking proactive steps to address the issue of gambling addiction. The collaboration between the Association of Nigerian Bookmakers (ANB) and Gamble Alert is a positive initiative aimed at promoting responsible gambling practices and providing support for individuals facing addiction.

The emphasis on creating a safer and more responsible gaming environment is crucial, especially with the increasing prevalence of online gambling. The recognition of the potential harms associated with gambling activities and the commitment to social responsibility by the gaming industry, as expressed by the CEO Fisayo Oke and Executive Secretary Mrs. Olabimpe Akingba, is a step in the right direction.

The acknowledgment of the serious consequences of gambling addiction for individuals and their families, as well as the commitment to actively contribute to the well-being of customers and the community, reflects a responsible approach by the gaming industry in Nigeria.

It’s essential to monitor the implementation and effectiveness of these initiatives over time and to continue addressing potential challenges and evolving concerns related to responsible gambling. Public awareness, education, and the availability of resources for those struggling with addiction are key components in fostering a safe and enjoyable gaming environment.
