NBBF disclaims malicious tweet

first_imgRelatedPosts Serbia-based Nigerian basketballer slumps, dies after training NBBF celebrates Nigerian Arizona Women Basketball player of the Decade Pray for Nigeria during Ramadan — NBBF The Nigeria Basketball Federation has disclaimed a publication in the social media where it was claimed that the federation had secured the release of funds from the Ministry of Youth and Sports ahead of the FIBA Africa Pre-Olympic qualification tournament in Maputo, Mozambique.The NBBF made the disclaimer in a statement on Thursday.The statement said: “The attention of the Nigeria Basketball Federation has been drawn to a publication via a twitter handle ‘D’TigresNG’ alleging that the Ministry has released funds to the NBBF and that the federation could not pay the D’Tigress players who represented Nigeria at the FIBA Africa Pre-Olympic Qualifying Tournament in Maputo, Mozambique, their appropriate allowances in order to prosecute the Women’s Olympic Qualifying Tournament whose 1st window ended in Maputo, Mozambique, a few days ago.“The NBBF wants the public to note that it does not have any form of control of this twitter handle and it dissociates itself in every material particular from that twitter publication which is indeed false and misleading and urges members of the public and all concerned to disregard it in its entirety.”The NBBF said it was unable to pay the players their full allowance in Maputo as it was not in position to do so due to lack of funds. It said: “The federation has not received any related funding from the ministry yet, which is still being processed and expected.”The Federation made it clear to the players in Maputo that when the funds eventually become available, they would receive their full entitlements.The NBBF, the statement added, has launched an investigation to get at the root of this publication, which is believed to be the handiwork of detractors bent on derailing the D’Tigress’ Olympic Games aspirations and also to portray the federation in bad light before the sports ministry.
