Zenith Bank hails D’Tigresses, charges team to rule Africa
Zenith Bank Plc, sponsors of the annual National Women League, has showered praises on the Nigeria female team, D’Tigresses, for the impressive results recorded so far at the ongoing FIBA Women Afrobasket taking place in Mali.
D’Tigresses started the competition on a winning note, defeating Mozambique 80 to 69 in their first game, whipped Democratic Republic of Congo 84 to 47 in the second and on Sunday defeated Egypt 106 to 72 to emerge the first team to book a place in the quarterfinal of the competition.
The Group Managing Director of Zenith Bank, Peter Amangbo, yesterday applauded the team and said the bank was proud of the results posted so far.
He said: “We are really delighted, especially because only few weeks ago, some of the players representing Nigeria in Mali were in the final of the Women Basketball League, which we have sponsored in the country for 13 years.
