Nigeria’s Pillar Of Sports, High Chief Donatus Agu-Ejidike, has congratulated the national female basketball team D’ Tigress on their victory over host Senegal in the final of the AfroBasketball championship held in Dakar on Sunday.
“I am sincerely glad with the feat of our ladies. They have once again proven to be the best in the continent by beating Senegal to win the title back to back.
“Once again, our ladies have shown that with concerted efforts and encouragement by government and sports stakeholders, our athletes can rule the world,” Ejidike said.
The renowned sports philanthropist and board member of Karate Federation of Nigeria went on to describe the feat by D’Tigress as a testimonial of the can-do-spirit of the average Nigerian person.
Already, the team has returned back to Nigeria via Murtala Mohammed airport Lagos on Monday night.
