The Players Representative on the board of the Nigeria Basketball Federation, Ejike
Ugboaja will meet with all players in the Nigerian Basketball League system on
Wednesday and Thursday to fashion a way forward for players and the game.
The 2-day meeting which will be the first of its kind between players’ representatives on
the board and its constituency will hold at the conference hall of the Lagos state chapter
of the Sports Writers Association of Nigeria.
Ugboaja said that the need to formally meet the players who he is representing on the
new NBBF board was borne out of the new leadership of the NBBF to empower the
players who they see as their clients.
Wednesday’s meeting is scheduled for 4pm while Thursday’s meeting will start by
11:00am at the same venue with discussions on players’ welfare expected to be at the
front burner of deliberation.
