Gabriovoice: Why did you prefer gambling business to legal practice?

Otunba Wesco: This is a very good question my brother; I have been in gambling business for the past 20years, played gamble in USA,London,Canada and other countries of the world. Being as an agent promoter before I started Wesco Pools& Lottery Limited also boosted my professional gambling business in Nigeria. I never made it so big at once, every success of mine started with a process. You can see that I attended all public schools and was never born with a silver spoon in life. My educational background has helped me in building this lucrative business that has created many job opportunities to both old and young people in Nigeria. My legal background has also helped me to position this business to an enviable height in life.

Gabriovoice: Gambling business was met for miscreants in those days why educated elites like you are now involved?

Otunba Wesco: It is unfortunately that in Nigeria here, gambling business is seen as do and die affairs. Gambling business falls into entertainment which means, it is a business that entertains the public with great joy. In the Western world, gambling business is for relaxation. You can play or bet a game, if you are lucky, you win. That is the game for you! It is a business that entertains the public with much fun.

Otunba Wesco: In 2015 elections, I contested for Ijebu Central Federal Constituency, won the election but the APC electoral change coasted my victory and today it is clearer to all Nigerians that the ruling party only came to hoodwink us with their change anthem. I will be contesting for House of Representatives in 2019 under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and I know with God on my side, we shall secure victory for my people.

Gabriovoice: Why Wesco is not on National Television adverts like other lotto companies in Nigeria on regular basis?

Otunba Wesco: Good product advertises itself. In Wesco I have paid #70,000,000, #1,000,000 and other huge amount of money to Wesco winners. The game is that when people play and win, you give them their money, it makes the business grows faster, bigger and greater. That is why Wesco remains on top in this gambling business in Africa. We also give out Wesco products to our clients across the country as a way to encourage them to do business with us.

Otunba Wesco: Today, technology and my educational background have helped me in managing this business across the 20 states of Nigeria. If I contest for House of Representatives come 2019, it would not affect my business as a result of technology at my disposal now. With technology I can communicate with all my managers and agents across the country. God has been faithful to me in this business. When I was not in Nigeria for three months, my business was moving. At 50, God has been faithful to me at all levels. These generational entrepreneurs in Nigeria are blessed with technology and with adequate information at their disposal they can grow their businesses at all levels.
