Written by on June 15, 2022

The Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports Development says it will commence the Under-18 basketball championships from July 27 to July 30 with a view to ensuring more youth participation in the sport.

Mr Mohammed Manga, Director, Press and Public Relations in the ministry, made this known in a statement on Tuesday in Abuja.

Manga said the minister, Mr Sunday Dare, recently inaugurated an Interim Management Committee (IMC) to oversee the development of youth basketball and domestic league following the country’s withdrawal from international competitions.

This is to afford the committee ample opportunity to study, rethink and restructure the logistics and organizational arrangements.

According to him, the shift will enable the committee to ensure that states are adequately informed and prepared for full participation.
