Friends of Nigeria Sports(FNS), have queried the purported meeting between Nigeria Basketball Federation President Engr. Musa Kida and Tijani Umar, a former boss of NBBF summoned by
the Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports Development slated for Monday, October 18, 2021.

According to the message, the meeting is aimed at finding lasting solutions to the raging crises rocking the Nigeria Basketball Federation(NBBF).

In a release signed by its spokesperson, Asiwaju Akeem Busari, it queried the essence of the planned meeting. It also demanded to know the position and desires of Tijani Umar in whole drama that has engulfed the NBBF.

” We are confused and surprised by the planned meeting by the sports ministry. The last extra-ordinary congress of the NBBF held last week Saturday in Abuja, was definitive, as it charted a path forward for the federation.

” What does TJ Umar want? What are his positions in all of these imbroglio? Is he contesting for the NBBF presidency?”.

” Let TJ Umar and whoever wants to contest for any position come out openly and declare their intentions and of course, come to Benin city for the elective congress,” Asiwaju Busari emphasised.
