Basketball is on the rise  in Nigeria… Sports Minister.

The Minister  of Youth and sports Development Mr Sunday Dare has  once again emphasized the importance  of developing  other sports through  private public partnership.

The Minister made this assertion at the final of the Dr & Mr. D. K Olukoya Women Basketball Championship which held on Sunday in Lagos.
According  to the Minister”Basketball is on ascendance in Nigeria and nothing confirms that more than the fact that the Tigress and the Tigers will be at the Olympics.

This is  another great basketball game and the fact that these young ones have exhibited  so much skills and abundance of  talents gives me hope that the future of basketball in Nigeria is very bright especially when you start from the grass root.

When you  catch them young from 15,16,17,18 you will realise  that the future of both    male and female Basketball is indeed very bright”
In the forthcoming Olympics, the Tigers and Tigress will be  representing Nigeria as well as Africa and we look forward to  an excellent performance.

Team Nigeria first batch to Tokyo leaves  on July 5th, while the second batch departs on  July 13th. The last batch joins them on July 19th.”
The Minister  assured that Team Nigeria  was properly  motivated to perform well in Tokyo, even as the athletes  are well guided to adhere  to the covid-19  Protocol and  to also exhibit  high  sense of responsibility  and discipline  during the games.
