Taking to his Instagram account the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated the Nigerians female basketball team for their new feat achieved in the FIBA WOMEN'S AFROBASKETBALL competition hosted in Cameroon, as the efficient D'Tigress mercilessly defeated the ladies of Mali 70-59 which was good enough to go home with the trophy.
Showing his support and appreciation for the achievement of the ladies in the continent's basketball competition, President Buhari's congratulating words on the ladies who brought honour and recognition to the nation were filled with approval and gratitude for their new feat achieved. Below is congratulating message.
A lot would be said and done, but that would not be enough to compensate, what the ladies have done for the nation at the global level, despite th nature of the competition. Stepping into the game, they were faced with the arduous task of winning their opponent who never failed to give up the good fight until it was over.
Now regarded as the Queens of Africa in the basketball world, the D'Tigress win against Mali in the Afrobasketball competition was now the third time the nation has done that in the history of its Afrobasketball outings.
