On behalf of the board of the Nigeria Basketball Federation NBBF, I want to thank all stakeholders who came out today (yesterday) to rescue basketball from the hands of death, this they did by electing us to run the affairs of this federation,the NBBF.
As promised in my speech yesterday, we are committed with strong zest in reviving basketball especially by organising a viable domestic league, train our technical officials, build capacity of our coaches and also, improve the welfare of our players(home and abroad).
In the coming days,the board of the NBBF shall release a detailed blueprint of our developmental programmes and other deliverables we intend to achieve.
My plea is for everyone to unite with us and let us together build the game of basketball. Enough of bickering, backbiting and campaign of calumny.
Together, let's build this game, as the dark days are over.
Long live Basketball!
Long live NBBF!
Long live the Federal Republic of Nigeria!
Igoche Mark
President Nigeria Basketball Federation NBBF
