President of the Federation of International Basketball Association, west Africa zone 3, Rtd Colonel Sam Ahmedu has warned the NBBF against conducting their own election ahead of the forthcoming Sports Federations’ election.
Ahmedu noted in a chat with brila.net that if the NBBF fail to adhere to instructions, and conform to the guidelines released by the Sports ministry, they should be ready to fight a lost battle.
” I’m an international member there is no law that say they must conduct their own election. By every standard as a member of the international body, I’m supposed to be a member but they cancel my name. This is a battle that they cannot win, they will go to the international body, they will still send them back. Somebody said they should go to the Court of Arbitration for Sports. But CAS will still ask about your local laws. “
