FG set to inaugurate 10-man committee to manage the Nigeria Basketball Federation

The Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports Development is set to inaugurate a 10-man committee to manage the Nigeria Basketball Federation. 


This is coming after President Muhammadu Buhari approved the withdrawal of Nigerian basketball teams from International competitions for 2 years.


It was gathered that the withdrawal was as a result of the lingering crisis in the NBBF for almost two decades.


The members of the committee which include; Dr. Henry Nzekwu (chairman), Udon Ubon Humapwa, Frank Jitubhoh, Prof. Adamu Ahmed, Peter Nelson, Group Captain Rahinatu Garba, Aderemi Adewunmi, Oluchi Nzekwe and Sani Adio (SAN) will be inaugurated on Saturday, June 4, in Abuja


The Minister of Sports, Chief Sunday Dare, through a statement signed by the ministry’s Director, Press and Press Relations, Mohammed Manga, confirmed that the committee would be inaugurated this weekend.


He said, “Arrangements have been concluded to inaugurate the IMC on Saturday, June 4, 2022 at the Indoor Sports Hall, Package ‘B’ Moshood Abiola National Stadium, Abuja.


“The event is to be preceeded by an exhibition match between two schools from FCT’.


“On inauguration, the committee is expected to commence a youth basketball league and domestic league to help in nurturing home based players so that we will have a reservoir of players that will represent the country in international events after the period of withdrawal.”


“This will set the ball rolling, by creating opportunities for our local players to have regular competitions at home thereby elevating their status to getting scholarship to universities all over the world and clubs to play and better their living standard which will also have positive effects on the economy of Nigeria.”
