In a bid to solve the lingering crisis rocking the Nigeria Basketball Federation, the Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports Development (FMYSD) hereby directs an indefinite suspension of the NBBF Elective Congress scheduled for 30 October, 2021 in Benin City.

The new date for the elections was not revealed, but according to the statement released, the indefinite postponement was considered to avert further deterioration of the leadership crisis, towards finding a workable solution to the current disagreements within the Federation.

Elections held in various constituencies (i.e Zones, NAWIS, Military/Paramilitary, NAPHER.SD, etc) will stand and those elected therefrom remain Members-Elect.

It is no news that the NBBF has been under severe scrutiny in recent times, with postponed elections, unpaid allowances and bonuses of the national team and many more eating deep into the progress of the federation.
