President Muhammadu Buhari has showered N1 million on each member of the national female basketball team, D’Tigress, who won the 2017 FIBA Women’s AfroBasket tournament in Mali and qualifying for the 2018 FIBA Women’s Basketball World Cup in Spain.

The team officials got N500,000 each. 

The President made the announcement before the commencement of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting, the first he is attending since his return from medical vacation in London where he spent 104 days.

Team captain, Aisha Mohammed, said the cash reward would spur them to go for gold in Spain next year.

In the same vein, the President of Nigeria Basketball Federation, Musa Ahmadu Kida, has attributed the success of the team to the democratic process that has returned to NBF, adding that if the team could achieve this result in three weeks of the new executive, they would repeat the same feat in Spain.     (The Sun)
