NBBF Caretaker Committee Dissolved

Waffi TVOctober 27, 2021

The Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports Development has ordered the immediate dissolution of the Nigeria Basketball Federation (NBBF) Caretaker Committee headed by Engr. Ahmadu Musa Kida ahead of the federation’s elections.

In a letter addressed to Kida and Prof. Florence Bola Adeyanju, member, Caretaker Committee, NBBF, the sports ministry, thanked the duo for their contributions to the development of basketball in Nigeria.

The statement, signed by the Secretary-General of NBBF, Afolabi-Oluwayemi Olabisi said: “As you may recall that the Honourable Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Mr. Sunday Dare, on 4th May, 2021, inaugurated the Caretaker Committees for 31 National Sports Federations, including Basketball, to run the affairs of the respective Federations ahead of election of their new Boards.

As the Nigeria Basketball Federation prepares for its Elective Congress, I am directed to inform you that the Federation’s Caretaker Committee has been dissolved with immediate effect.

“The Federation appreciates your contribution to the development of Basketball in Nigeria.” the letter added.

Yet, the Nigeria Basketball Federation has urged basketball stakeholders to ignore an unsigned press statement credited to the Permanent Secretary of the Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports Development indefinitely postponing the NBBF elections.

In a statement signed by the Caretaker Chairman of the federation, Engr Musa Kida, the purported postponement is illegal and a direct usurpation of the powers of the NBBF Congress as enshrined in the 2019 NBBF Statutes.

The statement described the move as repugnant to natural justice, equity, good conscience and an arbitrary use of power after the ministry and the Nigeria Olympics Committee had on numerous occasions confirmed the existence of a valid constitution as sanctioned by the Federation of International Basketball Associations in conducting its affairs as dictated by the NBBF constitution.
