NIGERIA BASKETBALL FEDERATION DOUSES TENSION OVER ALLEGED FIBA BAN

The Nigeria Olympic Committee (NOC) is sure the ongoing league being managed by the Tijani Umar faction of the Nigeria Basketball Federation (NBBF) would not in any way cause the Federation of International Basketball Association (FIBA) to ban the country from internationals, saying the world basketball body is only interested in bringing to an end the NBBF leadership crisis.

Secretary General of the Nigeria Olympic Committee, Tunde Popoola said yesterday that the on-going leadership tussle in the NBBF is based on lack of unity and understanding between the NBBF President, Musa Kida and Tijani Umar.
