The Nigeria Basketball Federation (NBBF) said it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Benin Republic, Togo, Niger and Burkina Faso on a regional development of basketball. The President of NBBF, Umar Tijjani told journalists in Abuja that the agreement was signed in Cotonou on April 9 and will result in the exchange of technical officials, coaches and referees. He said it will also allow players in those countries to participate in prospect camps, clinics and tournaments across the region with ease of movement made possible by the West Africa road network. "We will give them invitation to attend camps and clinics. We are going to give them leadership and assist with sports kits, we will also exchange coaches and share experiences," Tijani said. He stressed that the MoU allows for their referees to attend league matches in Nigeria while also giving NBBF the right to send its own referees to the countries to attend league matches. "By so doing, we will expand our horizon and create jobs for our coaches," he noted.
