Nairabet owner Akin Alabi wins APC House of Rep ticket

Nairabet owner Akin Alabi who is considered as one of the foremost young entrepreneurs in Nigeria, has reportedly won the All Progressives Congress House of Representative ticket for Egbeda/Ona Ara federal constituency.

It was gathered that Alabi who had in 2015 contested for the Egbeda-Ona Ara seat of the House of Representatives’ election under the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, but lost, clinched an automatic ticket after other contenders stepped down for him.

He excitedly made the huge announcement via his Twitter page, amidst congratulatory messages from his followers. The post read;

“I have just been declared the winner of the primary election after the other contestants, Hon Jenrade, Hon Adewale Ishola and Hon Adio all stepped down for me,”


It may be recalled that Akin Alabi had earlier resigned from the sports betting company to enable him to concentrate on his political ambition ahead of 2019. But maintained that if he loses he is always welcome back into his office at anytime.

“In a few weeks, I will be resigning as CEO of NairaBET so I can fully concentrate on my campaign to contest for a seat in the House of Representatives.

“If I lose, my seat will be waiting for me at the head office. Politics is not a do or die affair,” he said.
