The Minister of Youth and sports Development, Sunday Dare has once again emphasized the importance  of developing other sports through  private public partnership.

Dare made this assertion at the final of the Dr and Mr. D. K Olukoya Women Basketball Championship which held on Sunday in Lagos.

According to the Minister, "Basketball is on rise in Nigeria and nothing confirms that more than the fact that D’Tigress and the D’Tigers will be at the Olympics.

“This is another great basketball game and the fact that these young ones have exhibited so much skills and abundance of talents gives me hope that the future of basketball in Nigeria is very bright especially when you start from the grassroot.

“When you catch them young from 15,16,17,18, you will realise that the future of both male and female Basketball is indeed very bright."

In the forthcoming Olympics, D’Tigers and D’Tigress will be representing Nigeria as well as Africa and we look forward to an excellent performance.

Dare assured that Team Nigeria was properly  motivated to perform well in Tokyo, even as the athletes  are well guided to adhere  to the covid-19  Protocol and  to also exhibit  high  sense of responsibility  and discipline during the games.
