The Federal Government has again reiterated it’s resolve to address the lingering crisis in the Nigeria Basketball Federation (NBBF), even as this necessitated the setting up of an Interim Management Committee (IMC) on 4th June.
Recall that the constitution of that committee however followed Nigeria’s withdrawal from international competitions for 2 years.
Consequently, therefore and with the Federal Government’s rescission from its earlier withdrawal of Nigeria Basketball from the International scene and relisting the NBBF, beginning from Nigeria’s participation in FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023 Africa Qualifiers in Kigali, Rwanda, the continuation of the IMC is no longer necessary.
The Ministry of Youth and Sports Development has therefore announced the dissolution of the Interim Management Committee for Nigeria Basketball with immediate effect.
In a statement, the Ministry in the same connection, wishes to thank the Chairman and Members of the now defunct committee for their invaluable services to the Basketball family and the country.
