Indian State Shows Hate To Nigeria: SEE Anti-Nigerian Billboards In Goa, India

Published

on

A Goa Minister has kicked off a controversy calling Nigerians in the state a cancer and demanding that they be removed. The comment is likely to add to the diplomatic war on between India and Nigeria. “Good and quality tourists will not like to visit Goa seeing such a scene. These Nigerians are like a ‘cancer’. This will affect our coastal belt badly,” Goa Art and Culture Minister Dayanand Mandrekar said.

A Nigerian was killed in Goa recently which led to a protest by Nigerians living in the Indian state, the state government responded by cracking down on Nigerians in the state which has led to many Nigerians in the start to live in fear.

This banner is sad because Nigerians show love to the over 1 Million Indians who live and work in Nigeria. What is your take on this?

    That is a bold anti-nigerian sign. I think it should b dealt with @ d top goverment level.We can’t chase their people away from here. moreso,we don’t know what nigerians have done to them in Goa.Nigerians could av flooded them with drugs,we could be making a higher percentage of drug peddlers there.its a pity

    Well, it is unfortunate. I live in India under exchange program, where i live nobody has ever molested me or bullied me, I think we Nigerians are the cause of our problem, we live too lousy life knowing fully well we have no meaningful means of livelihood in India, still we live so large and extravagantly, and these locals kept wondering our source of income. The worst part of it is that 99% of them if not 100% are there illegally because Goa is tourist destination and not for studies, that’s why drug business is booming in that area due to influx of foreigners so they cannot say they are schooling.
    I am not justifying the killing of our brother but the signpost tells it all, to me is not racist, they are tired of Nigerians, even their police are afraid of us.
    They should better leave Goa and go back to Nigeria if they don’t have valid stay.
    If you live decent and responsible life locals will respect you no-matter what.

    Pls! Don’t be too forward here. We need to pause n ponder on this issue. Most nigerians out there are dealing drug while they claim to be students. They’ve probably had enough n that clearly shows in d post. We should watch ourselves too!

    This is wrong, getting alot of negative views in India as well as alot of airtime, Indians are saying arrest the peddlers but do not go after the community. Nigerians are involved in drugs in India yes, but so are Russians and Israeli, but they seem to be focusing on one group for now, Indians are hand in hand with these drug peddlers as well. Either way, I hope is resolved.

    Let our govt make our country conducive for living and people will hardly travel out for ‘greener’ pastures. Other nationalities love their people but in Nigeria, we prefer to favour the foreigner to our own. Since most of the foreigners know why Nigerians are leaving their country, they will forever look down on us. And we are a people that like to react rather than to act. However, no country will like foreigners to come and pollute their countries that they labour hard to build. Please, if its true that Nigerians traffick drugs then you blame the Nigerians but its not an excuse for the dehumanising treatments. Again, you know that every black person outside Africa is a Nigerian except proven otherwise. Chei, Nigerians are suffering home and abroad so where do we go.

    Nigerians are Wide but we show love no matter yours colour we see you as one n yet they still hate US. With this am beginning to dislike Indians they are heartless people they only know and look after themselves. Its time we youths stand up and make a change, This Government needs to know we are more important than Corruption.

    Well i think if our Government can steak to a policy and enforce it accordingly there won’t be any issue in foreign countries Nigerians are, but the truth need to be told, if Nigerians oversea messed-up they should face the consequence instead of writing all sort of things against the populace of this great nation. Indian Government should do something serious about this or else Nigerians too will react in a very brutal way.

    The truth of the matter is that we Nigerians hate ourselves,if not tell me why we will leave the object and start chasing shadows and not until we change our attitude towards one another in this country called Nigeria the problem of humiliation we Nigerians face in and outside this country will continue,imagine ordinary Indians again humiliating us in their country when in actual fact they are over a million Indians in this country,here they live like Kings and queen irrespective of the kind of business they do whether legal or illegal,or have we forgotten the arm factory that was uncovered recently in Kano have you asked your self those behind it or you think it is Nigerians alone.If an American national commits any type of crime outside the shores of their country you will never hear them criticizing that person irrespective of his tribe, or do you think they don’t have check out during their election if you don’t win in the state of Florida you can’t be president have you ever ask yourself why it is so.The time has come for our Government to look into the activities of this foreign nationals particularly the Asians the way and manner they enslave us both here and outside is becoming alarming,in our own country we are at the mercy of this Asians in their country they see us as fouls just because the government have arrogated much power and honor to them that is why they can humiliate us in our country paying our citizens peanuts as salary while carting away our much needed foreign exchange to develop their country,Government should as a matter of urgency review all this anomalies in the interest of the citizenry as we are running out of patience.Again government should seek and investigate the killing of the Nigerian in India if not we will no longer believe in them,remember that true power is service and the president MUST serve all people especially the poor,the weak,the aged and above all the youth of this great nation. ”1sam 2:9-He protects those who are loyal to him.but evil people will be silenced in darkness.Power is not the key to success”GOD BLESS NIGERIA.

    Some people comment really annoy me. How can they say we are spoiling our name over there. Can they swear and say that it’s only Nigerians that sell drugs over there. This is clearly racism. Look at dry India one of the poorest country in Asia. Tufiakwa! If they dont stop this rubbish, we would become anti-indians and start deporting them. How many Nigerians are even in India just a few tens of thousands while over here there are millions of them. Gosh! Maybe some other countries also do this over there and then they capitalize on the Nigerians. If not for Nigeria’s economy system, what would make someone go to India. A land where they worship nonsense and eat nonsense. I hate India. Poor country! Poor People! Tufiakwa! Mba! India is a NO! NO! NO!.

The potential for iGaming in Nigeria uncovered

Published

on

There is a growing positivity surrounding the Nigerian iGaming industry. As the nation breathes a collective sigh of relief following the announcement of the African Continental Free Trade Agreement (AfCFTA), it’s hoped that many burgeoning industries such as the world of iGaming can be allowed to flourish and bring much-needed tax revenues to the country.

Many analysts within the iGaming industry believe Nigeria has the potential to become Africa’s iGaming hub. Its domestic market is already forecast to be worth $2 billion, due largely to sports betting and the fascination with Nigerian soccer stars overseas like Odion Ighalo at Manchester United. Meanwhile, the domestic penetration of smartphones is also recognised, with some 83% of the population now owning a mobile device.

Nigeria was also a major focal point during this year’s SBC Digital Summit Africa, which was understandably conducted virtually earlier this month. Ahead of the summit, experts enrolled in the event were asked to vote on which African country offered the best foundations for iGaming operators to thrive. Nigeria outperformed every other nation, with 31% of all votes labelling Nigeria as the country with the highest potential to make a real
success of its domestic iGaming sector.

Even South Africa, which has a well-established domestic iGaming market, ranked second with just 28% of the vote. Prospective Nigerian iGaming operators should certainly take a leaf out of the book of South African iGaming brands, many of which have cultivated a strong customer base through the use of incentives and sign-up bonuses. The vast majority of offers available at platforms like Casinos.co.za, direct gamers to the safest and most reputable
platforms.

One of the main reasons that industry experts believe in Nigeria’s iGaming potential is that it already boasts an engaged target demographic. Many of its young adults are already betting on sports like soccer and boxing, and there is a feeling that introducing them to casino gaming verticals would not be too difficult a stretch. Marry that with a growing number of smartphone users, which is predicted to reach over 140 million people by 2025, and you can
see the potential for iGaming apps and web applications to provide immersive, secure gaming
on the go.

Presently, the country has three separate bodies responsible for licensing online betting activities – the Nigerian Investment Promotion Commission (NIPC), the Special Control Unit against Money Laundering (SCUML) and the National Office for Technology Acquisition and Promotion (NOTAP). At the time of writing, online betting at a domestic Nigerian site is strictly prohibited by law. Loopholes regarding offshore operators make it possible for
Nigerians to play elsewhere, but it seems somewhat short-sighted for the Nigerian government to steer clear of creating its own regulated, revenue-making iGaming industry.

In a nation of substantial population, supporters of developing a domestic iGaming industry in Nigeria believe that the most would be a positive step, creating new career opportunities for everyday people. This could be in customer support, game development or any other facet of an iGaming operator. All the while, generating tax revenues for the Nigerian government and helping to breathe new life into the domestic economy.

There is a general feeling that Nigeria’s gaming industries tend to follow the same path as South Africa’s. The SBC Digital Summit Africa revealed that there has been a “seismic shift” from sports betting markets to casino games in the last eight months, including live dealer tables, that’s according to Sean Coleman, CEO of the South Africa Bookmakers Association.

Live dealer games seemingly “appeal to millennials” across South Africa. Dean Finder, CEO of Evolution Services SA believes the fact that live dealer games are “not gender biased” is an opportunity to reach out to female players, which are an often “unserved market” across Africa.

For these trends to follow suit in Nigeria, operators will need to build further trust in their
games and regulatory measures to curry favour with the country’s legislature.

Oke

Oke

Information Nigeria recalls a graphics designer identified as Oke, was killed hours after tweeting “Nigeria will not kill me” on Wednesday.

It was reported that the young man had passed away after he was hit by a stray bullet.

The deceased’s younger brother, Daniel has come out to clear the air regarding the circumstances leading to his death.

Daniel revealed his brother was stabbed on the neck by thugs who infiltrated and ransacked their home.

In his words;

Good day, My name is Obi-Enadhuze Daniel younger brother of the now deceased Okechukwu Obi-Enadhuze @O_Okee . I, my brother and mother lived at makinde police barracks, mafoluku, Oshodi, Lagos State.

Today at about 11 o’clock in the morning the police station at makinde was attacked by thugs who wanted to destroy the station, I my mom and brother were holed up in our house.

 The attack went on for hours before the thugs eventually breached the police and proceeded to set the station on fire, after accomplishing this they set their sights to the barracks and began the assault, they proceeded to destroy every car in the barracks, my mom’s 2 cars where destroyed and set on fire and then they infiltrated our house by breaking the door they then proceeded to ransack the house and carted away with everything we own. 

 my brother on trying to get them to take everything but spare us was pushed to my mom’s room and stabbed on the neck, the attacker then proceeded to attack me but missed my neck but got my chin instead, after this my mom and I carried my brothers body to the entrance of the station soliciting for help from the thugs still ravaging the barracks, we were finally able to put him in a wheelbarrow and took him to a hospital where he was rejected because “he was already dead” unfazed we moved him to another hospital where he met the same treatment this was where he bled his last drops of blood and died, his body has now been moved to a morgue

we have lost every single thing we own, as our house was completely ransacked and set on fire the only thing left is my brothers phone and at about 8 o’clock this evening the barracks was still on fire but Okechukwu has paid with the ultimate price

I and my mother are homeless with nothing now but we’re safe for now, we thank everyone that has been able to reach out to us, and were able to share consoling words with us in these trying times, God bless you

While we were holed up in the house the three of us said these words together and we say it again ” THREE OF US ARE HERE, THREE OF US ARE TOGETHER, THREE OF US ARE SAFE”

Let it be known that my brother @O_Okee  was NOT killed by a police bullet but died a hero protecting my mother and I.

If you see this please retweet, let the world know how Okechukwu died. He was NOT killed by a police bullet but thugs in his home!”
