President Muhammadu Buhari will host Team Nigeria weeks after the contingent finished 2nd overall at the 2019 African Games in Rabat, Morocco.
Nigeria won 127 medals including 46 gold, 33 silver and 48 bronze, and all the winners will meet with the President at the Villa on a yet to be decided date, Minister of Sports Sunday Dare said.
The Minister broke the news at a press briefing on Wednesday, after the weekly Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting chaired by President Muhammad Buhari.
He also confirmed the Nation’s Senior Men and Women’s Basketball teams will be received as well.
Nigeria’s Women team, D’Tigress, cruised to gold at the 2019 FIBA Africa Women’s Championship in Senegal.
While, the Men Basketball team, D’Tigers, finished 17th overall at the FIBA World Cup this month, and picked a ticket for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
