The recent and unending crisis that has rocked the Nigeria Basketball Federation, NBBF, has prompted the President of Nigeria to approve the withdrawal of the country’s basketball team in all international competitions for two years.
Mr Sunday Dare, the Minister of youth and sports, disclosed Buhari’s decision.
This withdrawal gives the Government a big opportunity to address the internal crisis and power tussle within the federation and to revive the domestic league which has been put on hold.
The government will also use this time to set up an Interim Management Committee who will supervise and manage the domestic league and address other internal issues involving the Basketball Federation.
