NBBF Ban: No player has to suffer, we do not agree with the ban – Adora Elonu


Captain of the Nigeria Women Basketball Team, Adora Elonu, has disagreed with the ban on the Nigeria Basketball Federation, NBBF, by the Federal Government.

Wakawaka Sports Extra can report that Elonu was completely taken aback when reports in some quarters suggest that, her teammates won’t play under any President of the NBBF.

She described the ban as ill-fated that will be detrimental to the growth of everyone in the basketball family while pleading with the FG to reconsider their decision.

She said: The Nigeria Women Basketball team never said that. We never said that we won’t play under any President. We never said that.

“A quick look at the situation, we think that better ways it can be handled while allowing development in the local leagues, grassroots as well as the national team.

“No player has to suffer. We do not agree with the ban. We do not see this coming. We put a lot of effort, not just the players, the staff and everyone.

“Other players who cannot venture themselves playing international competitions. We disagree with the ban. We are strong globally. To take that away will be disastrous.”
