D’Tigress to receive N25m reward for winning 2021 Afrobasket


The Nigerian national women’s basketball team, D’Tigress, are set to receive a cash reward of N25 million from the Federal Government for winning the 2021 Afrobasket Women Championships in Cameroon.

The D’Tigress beat Mali in the final of the tournament in Cameroon in 2021 to win the Afrobasket women’s title for the third consecutive time.

The Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare, had recommended that a token of appreciation be given to the African queens of the court for doing the nation proud.

The minister, in a statement yesterday in Abuja, said the request has now received the approval of President Muhammadu Buhari.
