Stakeholders in the game of basketball have expressed dismay at what they described as an “illegal fund-raising ceremony” by the dissolved board of the Nigeria Basketball Federation (NBBF).
The dissolved NBBF board held a fund-raiser for N500m in Lagos on May 19 and many were left wondering why it was necessary, seeing as all national sports federations’ boards have been dissolved.
One of those aspiring for the presidency of the NBBF board, Musa Kida, claimed to have been stunned that, despite the compliance of other federations with the Federal Government’s directive, the NBBF chose to unnecessarily test its might against the government.
The representative of the South-South on the NBBF board said though the organisers realised a meagre N2.8m – way off the N500m target – there could be no arguing the illegality of the said event.
