Dr. Lanre Glover, the Chairman of the Electoral Committee for the 2021 Nigeria Basketball Federation, has promised to bring his wealth of knowledge to bear as the election approaches.

In an interview with NBBF Media following the announcement of the electoral guidelines, the two-time Vice President of the Nigeria Olympic Committee (NOC) stated assuming the position of Chairman of the committee was simple.

Glover said he is more than qualified to oversee an electoral process that all Nigerians and basketball stakeholders will be proud of, having been involved in more than 20 elections on a national and international level.

"Ministry put out a communication that some federations are allowed to organize their own elections based on their constitutions," Dr. Glover explained, "and having been a member of the Olympic Committee, I know that the Olympic Committee demanded to see the international approval of all federations' statutes."

Second, the NBBF's Congress accepted the statutes, which were later confirmed by FIBA. As far as I'm concerned, if a congress accepts a statute and their international federation confirm it, it's legal "
"I agreed to serve after seeing that the procedure was legal. First and foremost, I will offer a wealth of expertise to the election ", according to Dr. Glover.

As a supporter of sports federations' independence and internal governance, the opportunity to organize this historic election to the NBBF board was not one he would pass up.

"To prove that associations can be truly independent, I founded the Nigerian Triathlon Union over 12 years ago and we have been running and also participated at the African Games representing Nigeria"
He praised Chief Sunday Dare, the Honorable Minister of Sports, for taking a step in the right path.
'There is a common misperception that if associations are self-governing, they are government-free.' That is not the case "

"The Minister is the government representative in all matters of sports in this country."
He is optimistic that the election will go off without a hitch because all members of the electoral commission are men and women of strong and trustworthy character.
