The Niger Pot­ters Bas­ket­ball Club, Minna, yes­ter­day ap­pealed to the state gov­ern­ment to re­ha­bil­i­tate its in­door court at the 123 Sports Hall to stop it from beg­ging for a train­ing fa­cil­ity.

Coach Dan­ladi Ndatsu, its Head Coach, made the ap­peal in an in­ter­view with the News Agency of Nige­ria (NAN) in Minna.

“We are not train­ing on our court at the 123 Sports Hall be­cause it is in bad shape.

“We want the gov­ern­ment to re­ha­bil­i­tate the court to en­able us train there in­stead of look­ing for place to train,’’ he said.

Ndatsu said that the club was cur­rently train­ing at the state’s Col­lege of Ed­u­ca­tion In­door Sports Hall at the mercy of the Provost, who is the cur­rent Chair­man of the club.

“We are us­ing the In­door Sports Hall be­cause cur­rent chair­man is Provost of the col­lege.

“When his ten­ure ex­pires in the next two months, we have to pay for the hall be­fore we can use it,’’ he said.

He said that in the on­go­ing Kwesse Bas­ket­ball Premier League, the club had reached the Con­fer­ence’s Fi­nal 6, sched­uled for Au­gust 11 to 18 in Kaduna. (NAN) our the
