NBBF Elections: Rivers Rally Support For Kida

The Rivers State Government has tacitly thrown its weight behind Engr Musa Kida ahead of the forthcoming elections into the Nigeria Basketball Federation (NBBF).

This much was said by the Permanent Secretary of the Rivers State Ministry of Youth and Sports, Honour Sirawoo , adding the state Basketball Association Chairman has brought so much goodwill and growth to the state.

At the reception organised in honour of the gold medal-winning Rivers State basketball team at the just concluded National Youth Games, Sirawoo said the state basketball and by extension the state government, has benefited immensely from Kida.

“Rivers state government, Rivers state basketball has benefited from Musa Kida’ support. He is not tired, so why must you be tired of having him there?. His presence as the President of the Nigeria Basketball Federation was very useful to us”.

“You can see the talents we have and that is a reflection of what he is doing and he has not ceased supporting us, so why must we not support him. Rivers state will wholeheartedly support Musa Kida because his presence there will bring more good things to us, ” Sirawoo stressed.

“Today we are talking about basketball (in Rivers state). This is a sport that before now we may not have been talking about. We will be talking about Kano Pillars, Customs and others. But today, we are competing with them, represented Nigeria in Africa, what does that tell you?”

“It tells you that Musa Kida remembers that this is home and we will continue to tap from his wealth of experience and support. All we can do as our own appreciation is to support him because the more he grows the better for us”.
