Basketball Federation hosts course for referees

The course would help Nigeria get more FIBA graded referees

The Nigeria Basketball Federation, NBF, is hosting a FIBA ( International Basketball Federation) Zonal Referees course in collaboration with FIBA Africa. An Egyptian Referee Instructor, Shazly Muhammed Hassan, is to conduct the course at the National Stadium, Surulere, Lagos from October 9-12.

The Course is being attended by 12 Nigerian referees, 1 Ghanaian and 1 Togolese participant, who are aspiring to pass the qualifying exam and be certified as FIBA Zonal Referees.

In his goodwill message to participants, NBF President, Tijjani Umar, noted that the course provides Nigeria with an opportunity to increase the number of FIBA-graded referees who could in turn help improve the basketball leagues and game locally, and continue the good job that pioneers like the late Chris Obojememe started.

He said the course is also a much-needed boost for referees in Zone 3 of Africa, comprising 8 countries in the West African sub-region.
