“Each state is insisting they are in charge of gaming and betting while the National Lottery Regulatory Commission is also saying that they are the ones in charge. So who do we pay to? Do we pay twice? It’s a major reason why we convened this summit,” observed the ANB chief at the summit.Alabi insisted that by the time these double taxations are added to the company taxes that the operators of sports betting companies pay, the magnitude of the problems being faced can be imagined.“So, it’s strangulating our businesses coupled with forex issues. So we need to be sure who we pay to avoid these double taxations currently killing our business,” Alabi pleaded.“In an industry that is not coordinated and regulated, there are bound to be charlatans all over the place, running away with people’s money. But if it’s regulated, people pay their taxes and there are good financial standings, the public will have confidence in us and want to do business with us,” Alabi added.“It’s a growing industry; we’ve been noticed and we can’t hide again. Everybody knows something is going on there but it’s like we are sitting on a keg of gunpowder. One day if we don’t come together and nurture the industry, things might not go on well,” he warned.Also speaking at the summit, the Managing Director of Surebet247.com, Sheriff Olaniyan, also lamented on the matter of double taxation but remained hopeful that since regulators of the industry were well represented at the summit, solution are likely to be found for the problem.“Double taxation is a critical issue that we must tackle for the industry to move forward. If we do this (summit) every year, it’s going to be a major step forward in the industry. With the way the federal and state officials are tackling the issue of double taxation, I believe we can have a single tax payment solution,” he noted with optimism.While revealing the benefits that are inherent is a well regulated sports betting industry, Olaniyan agreed that the Nigerian experience is a growing one.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Operators of the sports betting companies in the country rose from a stakeholders’ summit in Lagos at the weekend, calling on both the federal and state governments to do something on the double taxation currently strangulating the sector.The summit organised by the Association of Nigerian Bookmakers (ANB) at the Sheraton Hotel in Ikeja, Lagos, had top stakeholders in the gaming and betting industry, which included the operators, players, police, tax experts, Inland Revenue service officials, regulators at state and federal levels and licensed agents within and outside Lagos in attendance.Acting Chairman of ANB, Akin Alabi, who also doubles as the founder of NairaBet.com, insisted that operators of the sports betting industry were in dilemma over whom to pay taxes.

Governor Ron DeSantis is backing Florida lawmakers’ attempts to lift NCAA rules that prevent college athletes from signing endorsement deals and profiting from their athleticism.DeSantis joined a bipartisan group of lawmakers and former Florida State University football players on Thursday to announce his support.The proposed legislation introduced by House Democratic Leader Kionne McGhee is reportedly modeled after California legislation that is set to take effect in 2023.If the bill is signed into Florida law, it is expected to go into effect on July 1.The NCAA opposes the legislation citing it blurs the lines between big-money professional sports and amateur college athletics.It’s unclear at this time how either of the state’s laws would coincide with the current NCAA because it is not a government body and still be able to have its own rules independent of state laws.

An Information Technology Manager at The Palm Beach Supervisor of Elections has been arrested after he allegedly pushed two officers while they investigated him on allegations that he may have been in possession of child porn.The incident was said to have occurred on Nov. 13th at the Supervisor of Elections office, located at 240 S. Military Trail.According to the report, The South Florida Internet Crimes Against Children task force had been investigating Jeffrey Darter since June 11th, after an image depicting the sexual abuse of a child between the ages of 4 and 6 was uploaded through his Kik Messenger account.After confirming that the account did belong to Darter, investigators made contact with him at his place of work.Darter told the investigators that “he could have uploaded the child pornography image by accident but he doesn’t know,” the arrest report stated. Investigators then asked whether or not Darter had ever seen child porn, to which he confessed that he had and that he has friends who were interested in it, including one who started a website.Investigators then asked Darter if they could search his phone, however, he refused and nervously began pressing buttons on the phone.Believing that Darter may have been attempting to delete evidence, the task force investigator then gained access to the phone and that’s when Darter was said to have pushed the officer in an attempt to get the phone back. Darter then pushed the Palm Beach Sheriffs officer when she intervened in the altercation.Darter has since been arrested and booked into the Palm Beach County Jail. According to the report, he is currently facing charges related to battery on a law enforcement officer but authorities are continuing their investigation into the child porn allegations.Officials at the Supervisor of Elections Office released a statement reporting that they have terminated Darter due to his violation of the company’s computer policy. It was said, however, that his actions on their computer were only against their company policy and were not considered to be illegal.
