NBA Africa Partners With Lagos State, Upgrades Ikorodu Basketball Court.
This youth and sports development partnership is in line with Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olus T.H.E.M.E.S agenda #ForAGreaterLagos, which has at its heart preparing the dynamic talented and athletic youths in our state to access international opportunities.
Nigerians in the diaspora and returnees working with the NBA Africa made this dream a reality.
His administration through The Lagos State Parks and Gardens Agency (LASPARK) has collaborated with the National Basketball Association (NBA Africa) and Hennessy to remodel the Basketball Court within Ikorodu Recreational Park.
This is a big step in the development of the game basketball in the state which had been the spring board for many NBA players from Nigeria.
This will go along way in youth engagement
Speaking at the commissioning and handover ceremony of the NBA Legacy Basketball Court in Ikorodu, the General Manager of LASPARK, Mrs. Adetoun Popoola, said the rehabilitation of the sports facility is part of the Agency's efforts to contribute to the growth and development of youths in the State.
