FG lifts ban on international basketball competitions

The Federal Government on Thursday rescinded its decision to suspend Nigeria’s basketball teams from all international competitions.

Ismaila Abubakar, Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Youth and Sports Development, made this known during a conference in Abuja on Thursday, Channels Tv reports.

According to Abubakar, the latest decision is based on a letter of appeal from the Nigeria Basketball Federation (NBBF), signed by Mr Musa Kida.

He said intervention by concerned stakeholders, former Nigerian international basketball players and well-meaning Nigerians to seek solutions to the issues triggered the decision.

DAILY POST had reported that President Muhammadu Buhari had in May approved the withdrawal of Nigeria from all international basketball competitions.

Sunday Dare, Minister of Youth and Sports Development, who confirmed the development had said the suspension will last for two years.

He had said the development would allow the government to concentrate on efforts to revamp the sport.

Highly doubt it.

Just goes to highlight the incompetence of this administration and their inability to think things through before making knee-jerk decisions.

After FIBA replaced them with Mali - D'Tigress worked very hard to get to that level through sweat and blood - dedication and discipline. Only for this clueless set of ppl to deprived them the opportunity to shine and make the country proud. Now what's their gain ? Rubbish.
They short down border for years - re opened it back without any reasonable outcome - Non sense.

FG lifting the ban doesn’t change the way FIBA sees the situation.

NBBF still has 2 Presidents.

Musa Kida was elected at a congress in Edo while Igoche Mark was elected at Moshood Abiola Stadium, Abuja
