The President of Nigeria Basketball Federation (NBBF), Igoche Mark has promised para-basketball players that the Federation would commence a para-basketball league in the country by next year.

After watching a para-basketball game at the ongoing National Para Games in Abuja on Wednesday, Mark said that the NBBF Board had a target of developing the basketball sport from the grassroots.

‘This is a promise, with an all-inclusive package that will include all players, irrespective of their physical challenge or situation.

‘We have promised basketball stakeholders, including players, officials and administrators, that the main goal of our board is grassroots development.

‘It is a development that will be all-inclusive, irrespective of the physical challenge anyone might be going through’, he said.

The NBBF President said the Federation would make further pronouncements on the para-basketball league in due course.

He then praised the Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports Development for organising and hosting the National Para Games, saying it is a good omen for the overall development of sports.

‘I pray this will continue’, Mark said. (NAN)
