The new board of Nigeria Basketball Federation NBBF has promised to run an all-inclusive administration.
The federation leadership led by Engr Musa Kida said an inclusive administration where all stakeholders will have a place in the scheme of things will be at the forefront of its administration’s programmes.
He commended the organizers of the Elite Crown basketball championship led by former Nigerian players, Louis Eden and Hanson Onuche for giving teams across Nigeria a taste of basketball action which lasted for five days.
“We want more of these initiatives that will provide a competitive opportunity for players based in Nigeria to compete fairly amongst each other. This is a welcome development which we will be proud to associate with in the future”.
“We had some of our board members on the ground to watch in their personal capacities and we are excited about what we saw”.
“The game belongs to everybody. Not everybody can be a board member or even stay active forever as a player, but we should all strive to contribute our quota to the game anytime the need arises”.
The NBBF encouraged all concerned stakeholders to join hands with the federation to make basketball a viable sport where everybody can operate like one big family.
“We are ready to accommodate all basketball initiatives, leagues, and programs with players at the forefront of our mission”, Kida said.
