Basketball Players Protest In Abuja, Want NBBF Constitution Amended

Nigerian basketball players are calling for the amendment of the Nigeria Basketball Federation (NBBF)’s constitution ahead of the federation’s elective congress.

The NBBF’s elective congress has been slated for October 30, 2021 in Benin, Edo State and the players are also expressing concerns over the sudden change of venue.

They said the constitution, allegedly designed by the Musa Kida’s faction and kept away from other stakeholders, was structured to favour Kida’s ambition to remain in power.

Speaking on behalf of hundreds of basketball players in Abuja on Thursday, the players’ representative in the NBBF board, Stanley Gumut of Mark Mentors, said the players were fed up with the antics of the ex-factional president.
