Customers Lament “Unprofessional” Conduct of Bet9ja

By Modupe Gbadeyanka

Two aggrieved customers of leading bookmaker in Nigeria, Bet9ja, Dennis Dickson and Orazurume Jude Mary, have called on the company to pay them their dues.

According to The Eagle Online, the customers are not happy with the “unprofessional behaviour” of the company.

Dickson stated that he has been deprived of his winning twice by the company, saying, “The first instance occurred during the 2018 World Cup, when I staked a bet with the company on the option that some selected players will not score more than 2 to 3 goals per match, all of a sudden after winning the ticket the company void it and said the option was meant to run for the whole of the tournament.

“The second time, I staked on some players that during the transfer window they will not change club without loan deals included, after winning my ticket the company on the 31st night of August 2018 changed the optioned and said that loan deals are also included. Whereas, a loaned player is still the property of the parent club and can be recalled at any time even before the expiration of the loan deal. “

Dickson stated that his tickets are: B93ECCWRTQZPE-675035 and B959ECCWERAWTT-68445.

Orazurume Jude Mary Tochi also stated that he played the game in Ekwulobia, Anambra State and the company reneged on the initial agreement that was reached earlier and that was not part of the initial agreement.

Tochi said: “I entered a bet with Bet9ja company under the category of transfer market with bet placed on whether a player would go on transfer to another club or not.

“Loan deal did not count at the time of this deal, but Bet9ja suddenly turned around and reversed the rule of the transfer market, stating that loan deal now counts after we agreed on transfer or no transfer.

“The sudden change was not acceptable as it was against the terms and conditions given to customers, after predicting players who will not change club.

“This amounted to N16,000,000 and N200,000.

“Two players are on loan, which is NOT transfer to the best of knowledge.

“Players on loan still belong to their parent. I went to my game its shows its lost, am not happy.”

Tochi gave his ticket number as B928SPPRCWPPSC-211061.

The Eagle Online reports that Bet9ja is an online bookmaker company that deals on major sporting events according to Alexa.com.

It is the second most visited website in Nigeria, only next to Google.com and it is owned by Kunle Soname, who is also its Chairman.

Soname is also the Chairman of Remo Stars Football Club.

It will also be recalled that three customers of Bet9ja had before now petitioned the National Lottery Regulatory Commission claiming the betting company had not paid the over N3 million stake owed them.

The petition was obtained by the News Agency of Nigeria at the Zonal Office of the NLRC in Ilorin, Kwara State.

The petition was signed by the contact persons of the affected customers, Emmanuel Ajiboye.

The petition stated that the trio had entered into a bet with the company under the category of “Transfer Market”, with bets placed on whether a player would go on transfer to another club or not.

The petitioners said a “Loan Deals Do Not Count’’ transaction was confirmed in an email by Bet9ja on August 28.

They, however, expressed dismay that on August 31, Bet9ja “suddenly’’ turned around and reversed the rule of the transfer market by stating that “Loan Deals Now Count’’ as contained in a mail the same day.

The petitioners expressed the belief that this was done in order to renege on payment to customers who had played and were going to win.

They described the company’s “contradictory” statements as unprofessional by a leading bookmaker.

The aggrieved petitioners said it was in their knowledge that players on loans still belong to their parent clubs and could still be recalled before the end of their loan deal.

They said that the sudden change was not acceptable as it was against the terms and conditions given to customers.

The petitioners also threatened to explore legal action should Bet9ja refuse to respond favourably to their complaint.

They urged the commission to look into the development and ensure justice was done.

Yinka Salau, an official of the zonal office of the commission in Ilorin, confirmed the receipt of the petition.

He said the petition had been forwarded to the commission’s head office in Abuja for further investigation.

Salau explained that the management of Bet9ja would be invited to state its own side of the case.

Famous Black and White Logos: Features and Benefits

Published

on

black and white logos

Despite the fact that many consider black and white logos to be old-fashioned and too simple, experience with their use shows their high efficiency and the presence of a large number of advantages. In any case, history knows many cases when black and white logos became super recognizable and turned into a real brand.

You can develop a black and white logo in the logo maker Turbologo for a couple of mipnuts.

What is a logo

A logo is a symbol (containing a picture, an inscription, or both of these elements in any proportions). Its main purpose is to make the company recognizable and distinguishable from firms engaged in similar activities.

A company with a unique and attractive brand name attracts customers. In addition, such brands inspire more trust among the potential audience.

The logo is not just a stylish picture – it has several significant “missions”:

  •  Creation of brand image. A brand name can convey a lot of information about a company. In addition to the specialization of the brand, the logo tells potential customers and the strengths of the products sold and the services provided. A high-quality logo will show the audience that you are responsible for your business;
  •  Advertising. The emblem presents the brand on the market, increases its significance. With the help of the logo, customers can find out the necessary information about the company and, if they wish, apply for services or goods. It is also effective to use the logo in business correspondence;
  •  Market identification. The logo helps customers who are already familiar with the brand to recognize it among other companies;
  •  Protection from unfair competition. Some firms copy products that belong to another (often promoted) brand. And the logo helps to show customers which of the goods is really genuine;
  •  Reputation building. If a consumer once used the services of your organization and was satisfied, then he is more likely to contact you again;
  •  Good quality guarantee. Products marked with the brand name are genuine. This protects customers from buying fakes.

Black and white logos are quite popular in the modern world. They have both advantages and disadvantages. They are economical (they do not require large development and printing costs to use), are minimalist, unobtrusive, are associated with luxury service companies (as large companies choose simple logos), and stand out against the background of the color emblems of competitors.

While the combination of different shades in a logo can look great, sometimes a black and white theme gets the point across better.

These colors are powerful in their simplicity, and they are suitable for almost any platform.

It can be printed on a T-shirt.

It can be pasted on a wall, pictured on a billboard, or even printed on a car window.

Instagram profile , or used as a Facebook cover.

It can be printed on the athlete’s equipment to promote the brand.

If you want a logo that can fit into any setting, go for the black and white option.

Printing in other colors can be expensive, but binary colors such as black and white are cost effective.

Black and white paints are readily available compared to other colors.

In addition, a binary logo is likely to use less power than a color logo.

Famous black and white logos

Today, dozens of extremely successful black and white brand logos are familiar. This color scheme has significantly increased recognition and has become a real “highlight” of companies such as:

  •  Nissan is a famous car manufacturer from Japan.
  • Nissan logo
  •  Sony is a company engaged in the creation of technology, as well as the production of films and video games.
  • Sony logo
  •  Bentley is a popular automotive giant from the UK.
  • Bentley logo
  •  BBC is the most famous news agency in the world, headquartered in London.
  • BBC logo
  •  Nike is a giant in the sportswear and footwear industry;
  • Nike logo
  •  Wikipedia is an international scientific and educational project known to every person who has ever sat down at a computer and used the Internet.
  • Wikipedia logo
  •  Walt Disney is a company familiar from childhood that produces animated films, as well as feature films such as Pirates of the Caribbean.
  • Walt Disney
  •  Gillette is a world-famous brand that produces blades, razors, creams and other shaving accessories.
  • Gillette logo
  •  Playboy is a legendary adult magazine.

Playboy logo

These are just some of the options for black and white logos that have become famous throughout the world and are known to almost every consumer on Earth. As can be seen from the examples presented, many world-famous brands prefer the combination of black and white to color versions of the logo.

Conclusion

Reducing the color gamut can be a key choice to bring your symbol to high standards, versatility and modernity.

Now is the time to make a black and white symbol that will exalt the brand that has appeared on the market. You can make a black and white logo yourself or by ordering it. The first option is much cheaper, and thanks to the emergence of numerous resources, the logo can be made by yourself, using special designers for this. It doesn’t take much time, but the result is amazing.

LandWey to Deliver over 1000 Houses to Nigerians Soon

Published

LandWey Investment Limited

By Modupe Gbadeyanka

Over 1,000 houses would be delivered to Nigerians by the end of the second quarter of 2022, the managing director of Landwey Investment Limited, Ms Shola Bello, has disclosed.

This is part of the efforts being made by Landwey, which is one of Nigeria’s largest residential developers, in reducing the housing deficit in the country.

Ms Bello, in a chat with newsmen on Monday, noted that the company has been able to deploy measures to mitigate the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic and the resultant economic recession in the real estate sector in Nigeria.

“2022 began on a rough note for most real estate developers in Nigeria. This has been made obvious by the growing apprehension amongst some clients over the viability of their investment owing to delayed delivery of housing units and some publications addressing these issues.

“Many developers in Nigeria have openly addressed some of the challenges experienced in the course of construction and delivery of housing projects, a challenge which is largely attributed to the impact of the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic and the resultant economic recession.

“In the past few years, many developers have had to navigate the harsh economy and its severe impact on all businesses across many industries. While it may appear that many of these businesses have recovered from the impact, the story is not quite the same for the real estate industry.

“The industry has felt its huge blow from resultant factors ranging from scarcity of labour, a challenge we have since overcome, scarcity of building materials, unfavourable importation policies, long project approval timelines as well as other environmental limitations.

“However, our clients are always at the forefront of everything that we do, therefore, we have had no other choice but to unearth new and creative solutions in order to mitigate the rippling effects of the pandemic and the harsh realities of the global economy,” she told journalists.

The real estate guru lamented that most real estate development companies had to reassess and adjust their operations to acclimate to the “new atmosphere by working and negotiating potential changes in project completion timelines and the management of their internal and external workforce, communicating challenges and progress updates routinely with investors and reviewing supply agreements with suppliers while also determining the impacts of delays in our delivery obligations as well as other potential risk factors.”

She added that after what appeared to be a challenging Q1, the company is now making a headway on housing project delivery with a mass delivery of homes scheduled to take place at the end of the second quarter.

“I can assure you, by the third quarter of 2022, we would be well on our way to completing at least 1000 homes,” Ms Bello concluded.

AfDB to Facilitate Nigeria’s Return to Agric Electronic Distribution System

Agricultural Chemicals

By Adedapo Adesanya

The African Development Bank (AfDB) has announced that it is ready to help Nigeria return to the electronic wallet system of input distribution to farmers to boost agricultural production.

This was disclosed by the president of the multilateral lender, Mr Akinwumi Adesina, on the sidelines of the bank’s ongoing 2022 Annual Meetings in Accra, Ghana themed Fostering Climate Resilience and a Just Energy Transition for Africa.

During his time as Nigeria’s Minister of Agriculture, Mr Adesina introduced the e-wallet system which allowed the government to register about 14.5 million farmers.

Through this platform, it reached them directly with inputs, notably seeds and fertilisers, via electronic coupons on their mobile phones.

Mr Adesina said the bank would support Nigeria with about $30 million reallocated fund to be used for an emergency food plan to produce in the dry season.

“Nigeria needs to go back and use the electronic wallet system that I developed when I was a minister to get fertilisers straight to farmers and cut out all the middlemen.

“We are going to help the government to do that because when farmers have quality seeds and fertilisers, they can rapidly triple food production,” he said.

According to him, Nigeria will also benefit significantly from the African Emergency Food Production Plan.

Business Post had reported that the AfDB Board had approved the $1.5 billion facility which will support smallholder farmers in filling the food shortfall. It will provide 20 million African smallholder farmers with certified seeds.

It is also set to increase access to agricultural fertilizers and enable them to rapidly produce 38 million tons of food, which is about a $12 billion increase in food production in just two years.

“In Nigeria, we have provided $540 million for special agro-industrial processing zones in seven states including the Federal Capital Territory.

“That will allow Nigeria to have special zones where you can have agro-processing value addition and increased competitiveness of agriculture.

“We are not alone, we put in $170 million and others put in money such as the Islamic Development Bank and other partners,’’ he said.
