Ministry suspends basketball federation elective congress

As a result of the recent and lingering crisis that rocks the Nigeria Basketball Federation, the Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports Development has suspended the Federation’s Elective Congress scheduled for 30 October, 2021 in Benin City.

This was disclosed in a statement personally signed by the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry, Ismaila Abubakar today in Abuja.

The full statement read as follows……………….

  1. Having reviewed the crisis around the Nigeria Basketball Federation (NBBF) and in consideration of the several attempts by the supervising Ministry to resolve the lingering crisis and fractionalization in the Basketball family, the Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports Development (FMYSD) hereby directs an indefinite suspension of the NBBF Elective Congress scheduled for 30 October, 2021 in Benin City. All concerned Stakeholders are expected to take note and comply.
  2. This decision is necessary to avert further deterioration of the leadership crisis and towards finding a workable solution to the current disagreements within the Federation. The rancor-free Development of Basketball in Nigeria is of utmost importance.
  3. The recent elections into the NBBF Board from the various Constituencies (i.e Zones, NAWIS, Military/Paramilitary, NAPHER.SD, etc.) stand and those elected therefrom remain Members Elect.
