How Baba Ijebu Lotto started - Kessington Adebutu As He Clocks 80

Premier Lotto Limited (PLL) also known as Baba Ijebu is a Gaming Company which was incorporated in 2001 and was established to carry out the Lotto business in Nigeria. The founder and current Chief Executing Officer of the company is Chief Kessington Adebukunola Adebutu.

The name Premier Lotto might not immediately ring a bell to the ears of an average Nigerian but the soubriquet 'Baba Ijebu' does. This is the intriguing story of Chief Kessington Adebutu whom many people know simply as Baba Ijebu. He is the Chairman of Premier Lotto Limited. He is also the founder of Kessington Adebukola Adebutu Foundation. A philanthropist to the core who started life as a game man in the early 1960s.

His graceful ageing face appears in virtually every dailies you come across today as colleagues,
business partners and friends took out time to celebrate his 78th birthday in the media today.

Adebutu who many believed have been in the gaming business all his life started operating as a pool agent as far back as 1963.Lotto is not the only game business he runs, there are other ones like casino and pool.

According to him,  "Having no capital, I looked for a business that required little or no capital and what came to my mind was to be a pool agent, because to be a pool agent, what you just need is to get a table and your pen. So, you can see it is not capital intensive. I did that briefly and within a short time with my best friend, the late Chief Solomon Adebayo Ayoku, we dominated Africa. We then diversified to other areas like agriculture, manufacturing, estate management, the lotto, entertainment and so on. Today, I have the concession for the Gateway Hotels Abeokuta for 25 years."

But why the name "Baba Ijebu"?Hear him..."It’s not my making. It’s not the name given to me by my father. It’s a nickname from the public and our satisfied customers and of course I am from the Ijebu province, maybe that explains it better.


  1. I want to know when chief Kenssington adebukunola do celebration to his customers?

I live my life based on gratitude

I live my life based on gratitude yes! I see every situation as an opportunity to be grateful. growing up wasn't easy not because we were very poor but because my dad is a disciplinarian that won't want his kids to have everything in abundance which sincerely, i used to hate him for but when i got older i realised that he did it for the best. i have no regrets about those hard days infact im grateful that i had those days because thats is the only reason why today i can survive through every situation. If i wake up in the morning healthy, and I all my family and friends are alive I'm always filled with gratitude. i try to keep it simple, maybe its easy for me based on how i was engineered or brought up! but i really dont want too many things. if I have good food, light in my house, decent clothes and my work..I'm satisfied, I don't want the best car, the best clothes, the best grateful for what i have presently. I'm so grateful for being alive to

How to make withdrawal as an agent on bet9ja

Today i'm going to show you how to withdraw from bet9ja especially as an agent  I realized a lot of agents do have a lot of problem with knowing how much or how  to withdraw to their bank account whenever they have winnings   so today i will be spilling the beans and by the end of this post  you should never and ever call customer care again on how to withdraw or how much to withdraw  ok lets go there... first, go to and log in to your bet9ja agent 'admin account'  before you start the withdrawal process the first thing to do is to know how much you can actually withdraw, most people forget that they need to remove the sales they made from the cash they will be asking for from the company  But how will you really know how much to withdraw ? first  from ''my account'' go to  ''report''  at  bottom left corner  Then from 'report' you click on  ''sportracingdeposit''
