The harsh economic conditions in African and beyond has forced a lot of youths to resort to betting as their surest means of livelihood. Whilst others make fortunes through them, others have struggled in debts because of this same habit.
A lot of pastors have in the past mounted the pulpit to use scriptural backings to convince people about the supposed heinous “religious crimes” one would be committing if they are engaged in betting.
This has somewhat fell on deaf ears since most people are still into it. Most youths have only that as their way of surviving.
Of late, most celebrities have openly questioned the rationale behind a lot of people’s urge towards betting. One popular figure that courted controversies over this subject was Serwaa Amihere of GhOne, EIB network. She was lambasted and threatened on social media for indirectly suggesting that betting was a bad move to make.
Well, another person has added his voice to the foregoing issue and he is no other person than self acclaimed security expert, Irbard Ibrahim.
He has reportedly started a campaign to convince the youths that sports betting, even though legal, is not the way forward for one’s survival in life.
