Controversial Blessing Nkiruka Okoro, popularly known as Blessing CEO, has thrown shades as she calls for banning betting platforms in Nigeria.

Blessing CEO opened up on how betting platforms had reached out to her for influence and offered huge amounts that could buy her a new car.

The self-acclaimed relationship expert called out the ‘gimmicks’ of the betting platforms, earning the trust of their consumers and throwing them under the bus. She also noted that lazy youths are those who engage in betting.

She shaded other celebrities who influence different betting platforms, saying they are misguiding their followers into wasting their earnings. She begged them to consider the future of those working hard to make ends meet but are misguided due to their influence.

Blessing CEO also spoke about how she became conscious of representing brands that can affect her growing sons’ morals in the future.

She called on President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to ban betting platforms, saying they are not legitimate businesses and promote fraud and thievery in society.

“Make government ban betting platforms…
It has rendered a lot of our young youth and old people us€less. Make government ban am. I don’t regard any celebrity that influences for them.”

Recall that the Federal High Court in Lagos had remanded “Blessing CEO” for alleged cyber-bullying.

The police arraigned the self-acclaimed relationship expert on a six-count charge of alleged cyber-bullying, libel, and for exhibiting uncensored movies.

The blogger was also accused of using her Instagram handle, @officialblessingceo, to injure the reputation of Folashade Samuels and the late Bimbo Ogbonna by exposing them to hatred, contempt, and ridicule

In a court sitting on Friday, March 31st, Justice Yelim Bogoro remanded the blogger and self-proclaimed relationship/mental expert in the custody of the Nigerian Correctional Services (NCoS) till May 30 for a hearing of her bail application.
