His Excellency, Senator Hope Uzodimma in his proactive and innovative nature to meet up to the modern day challenges, has assented a law establishing Imo State Lotteries and gaming authority to regulate all lotteries and gaming activities in Imo State and for other related matters.
This bill repealed the pools, betting and Lotteries law No. 44, 2019 as the law did not meet up with the present day challenges and requirements of the gaming industry on the findings that there were some areas not covered by the former law yet will generate income for the state.
“The new pools, betting and gaming law has made provisions for the use of digital technologies and empower the State Government to employ competent hands on the management of the gaming Industry unlike the former law” Governor Uzodimma stated.
Governor Uzodimma commended the Imo State House of Assembly members for looking into the bill and for passing it expideously.
The Governor assured Imo people of his continuation in executing legislations that will boost the confidence of the people, improve quality of life and ultimately deliver our promise of providing good Governance and transparency in all our dealings.
