Mbah moves to make Enugu hub for gaming tourism

From Geoffrey Anyanwu, Enugu

Governor Peter Mbah’s Administration in Enugu state is set to boost the state’s revenue by tapping into the opportunities in the nation’s gaming industry.
Consequently, it has concluded arrangements to host stakeholders in the nation’s gaming industry to a Gaming Conference, with the theme, “Exploring the future of Gaming: Innovations and Collaborations,” on Thursday, June 27, in Enugu.
Disclosing this, yesterday, the Executive Secretary of Enugu State Gaming and Lotto Commission, Prince Arinze Arum, noted that the state was a land of opportunities, hence Mbah’s administration’s determination to expand the opportunities further by positioning it as a hub for gaming tourism.
“Enugu State is a land of opportunities, and the Governor Peter Mbah Administration is committed to growing the state’s economy exponentially from $4.4bn to $30bn. This growth will not come from one sector. Therefore, we are committed to expanding these opportunities to make Enugu State the premier destination for investment, business, tourism, and for living.”
Arum said the gaming conference, which would be declared open by Governor Mbah, reflects the state government’s commitment to fostering growth and development within the gaming industry in the country.
“The Conference, which will be held at the Amadeo Event Centre is poised to bring together industry stakeholders from both private and public sectors across the country and beyond to explore new opportunities and collaborations within the gaming sector. This reflects our commitment to fostering growth and development within the industry.
“We firmly believe that this industry has the potential to transform our state into a gaming tourism destination and with its economic benefits in mind, we are keen to explore the vast opportunities that abound within the sector.
“By leveraging its regulatory powers and creating fertile ground for partnership opportunities, ESGC is paving for a better regulated and viable gaming industry.
“Indeed, Enugu State has long recognised the potential of this industry, and we believe that by harnessing its prospects, we can create a unique gaming tourism destination that rivals the best in the world.
“So, the forthcoming conference will not only showcase the immense potential of the gaming industry in our state, provide a platform for meaningful discussions and collaborations, but also help to unlock the economic benefits and pave the way for Enugu State to become a gaming tourism destination.”
The Executive Secretary expressed the Commission’s commitment to ensuring a fair and transparent gaming environment, stressing that “Through innovative ideas and flexible but firm regulations, we aim to strike a balance between creating opportunities for growth and protecting the interests of our citizens.”
