The Buhari Media Organisation (BMO) has congratulated Nigeria's men basketball team for its resounding victory over Team USA in the pre-Tokyo Olympics friendly.
In a statement by its Chairman, Niyi Akinsiju, and Secretary, Cassidy Madueke, the group said it "considers this victory as significant as this is the first time it is happening in history. We note that the USA being the birthplace of basketball, the Nigerian team was able to trounce them. It is also an inspiration for the female team, D’Tigress to emulate the men.
"We believe that with this victory they will go to Tokyo, Japan and win more laurels for Nigeria.
"We also urge them to sustain the tempo as the world is watching them and will now reckon with their attainments in the basketball game as this will go a long way to promote Nigeria in the area of sports". NNL.
