    Just N25m for the entire team for such a huge feat….? Is this governor joking….?! The 3rd best basketball team in the whole of Africa…?

    2 members of the squad are about to bag NBA deals, their coach Ogor Odaodu is about to be snapped up by US Monastir of Tunisia…all on the back of their sterling performance all the way to the final rounds…..that was how good they were.

    Mr governor, these lads deserve better please.
