You can go and confirm that on FIBA website.“It is only the one who gets invited to the FIBA world congress that is the recognised leader of the board.“As a matter of fact, the recognition of Nigeria as the Best Improved Women’s National Team by FIBA was handed to me as NBBF president.“There could be problems of different opinions on how to do things and I acknowledge that there are challenges, but there is no leadership tussle.”Asked where he stood on the purported leadership crisis, Dare told reporters that he was being briefed on the matter and other matters by his team.He said: “It’s just about 32 to 33 days that I assumed office and I am still being briefed by all my directors at the ministry. I am also meeting with the federations.“I met with the NFF on Friday and we had a fruitful discussion and today I have met with the NBBF. We have some housekeeping matters to discuss.“I am going to leave it at that. We are aware of what is happening but above all we have our eyes at the tip of the spear because what is important at this point is the success of our team.“We will discuss every important issue and look for ways to resolve them.” Nigeria moved up 10 places in the recently-released FIBA rankings and Kida said he was not surprised, following the antecedents of the national teams at recent tournaments.He said: “The latest FIBA ranking does not come to me as a surprise. We promised when we came in that we were going to make Nigeria basketball’s best destination in Africa.“Our female team came eighth in the world at the 2018 FIBA Women’s World Cup, thus becoming the first team from Africa to reach the knock-out stage.” Tags: NBBFlast_img read more
