According to Majesty E.K. Ofori, president of the University of Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA)‘s Student Representative Council (SRC), female students in Ghana are defying convention by partaking in sports betting.

Speaking on the GTV Breakfast Show, Ofori revealed that some female students have turned to gambling as a result of their financial difficulties.

In Ghana, betting is typically seen as a pastime for men, but Ofori claimed that some female students bet on basketball and football teams, even if they might not be familiar with the odds and other specifics.

Mr. Ofori also pointed out that learning how to bet has turned into a school unto itself.

The majority of young people, however, do not agree with the government’s recent decision to levy a 10% tax at the point of payout on winnings from lotteries, games of chance, and sports betting. They now depend on gambling as a source of income, therefore taxing it will lower their income.

“Some of the females gamble to some level despite the fact that they might not be familiar with the odds or other specifics. They wager on basketball and football teams, he claimed in an interview with GTV.
