FIBA replaces D’Tigress with Mali at Basketball World Cup

FIBA was informed about the decision of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to withdraw the Nigeria Basketball Federation (NBBF) from all international basketball competitions and activities for a period of two years.

In subsequent communications with the NBBF, and despite FIBA’s request, it has become clear that against the circumstances created by the government’s decision, the NBBF is unable to confirm its participation in the FIBA Women’s Basketball World Cup 2022.

Given the multiple strict deadlines that cannot be postponed in order to ensure the successful staging of a major international event (visa procedures, schedules, ticket sales, accommodations, friendly games, preliminary rosters, flight tickets, accreditations, etc.) and to protect the integrity of the competition, the FIBA Executive Committee has decided as follows:


FIBA will announce whether there will be any other decisions related to the NBBF’s participation in other FIBA competitions and any.


Can someone tell me one aspect of Nigeria that’s working fine under  these present APC led administration?…. These are the same people asking Nigerians to vote them again for consolidation? To actually consolidate on these grave in competences?….. Chineke ekwena ihe ọjọọ!
