“We have concluded plans to make 2022, a year filled with numerous basketball championships/invitational tournaments in order to make up for the death/deficit experienced during the reign of those who led basketball in Nigeria before now. In the coming days, the timetable will be made available to the public.
“The new phase of the basketball movement is ready to erase the abomination committed in the last four years. Certainly, our domestic league will become an envy to many, again,” the statement read in part.
