The Federal Government of Nigeria (FGN) consents to the National Lottery Regulatory Commission (NLRC) to host an international gaming conference to develop the nation’s business and financial sector.
The FGN made it known that the approval was made for the growth of the nation’s economy and to serve as a point of attraction to foreign investors.
The Director-General of the NLRC, Lanre Gbajabiamila, revealed that the Board intends to connect the Nigerian gaming industry leaders. Also, global titans in the gaming industry will be met to enhance the lottery sector, increase annual revenue, and improve national youth employment.
“The Lottery Commission was deliberately creating chances and openings for the Nigerian gaming industry leaders and potential investors to interact and connect with the best gaming industry giants across the world so as to upgrade their businesses, generate more resources and enhance the winnings for Nigerians” – Lanre Gbajabiamila, Director-General, NLRC.
The event will start on 31st October and end on 1st November at the Eko Hotel and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos, Nigeria. The conference, themed Innovation and Disruptions: Core Strategies for Success, will feature panel discussions, award presentations, trade shows, and a dinner party, among other activities.
Last year’s conference featured only Nigerian stakeholders and industry giants, but this year’s International Gaming Conference is set to host industry titans from across the globe.
The Director-General spoke about his dedication to developing the gaming industry and the future of the new reform for Nigerians.
“Since I assumed office, I have exhibited uncommon interest and commitment towards improving the lottery industry, making it a major source of revenue for the country and an industry to combat youth unemployment.
With the new international status of the gaming conference, the National Lottery Regulatory Commission, stakeholders, players and prospective investors have much to achieve in the professionally and dexterously packaged two-day conference.” – Lanre Gbajabiamila, Director-General, NLRC.
