Basketball: D’Tigress Disagrees With FG’s Two Year Ban

By Joshua Odidi


The Women’s National Basketball Team of Nigeria has expressed it’s grievances, following the self-imposed ban by the Federal Government.


Recall, the FG banned Nigeria from participating in international basketball competitions for two years, until the leadership crisis was resolved.

In that manner, the D’Tigress has disagreed with the two years ban saying it will rip Nigeria of every accomplishment it has made.

They were quoted saying “This ban is taking away all our future competitions, accomplishments and goals to elevate, inspire, and make Nigeria proud!”.

The D’Tigress are 3 times Afrobasket Champions, Olympians and are the only African nation that has qualified to participate in the Female Basketball World Cup which will take place in Sydney, Australia, in September later this year.
