Dear Habeeb,


I hope Ramadan is treating you well?
With mixed feelings, I accept my nomination to the Sports & Recreation Committee of the NBA.
I believe that nomenclature and titles do not really matter in a team if one is committed to the team’s success above the individual craving to be the Most Valuable Player (MVP) or highest goal scorer.
But placing a player in a wing, where his natural talent would not be maximally put to use, will affect his productivity and make him struggle to be part of the team and may ultimately be the weakest link in the chain.

I wish not to be the weak link or meddle in other people’s wings, hence my writing to you.

Since the inception of your administration, my loyalty and commitment to promoting the image of the NBA via your office have never been in doubt. Still, I started doubting your promise to me when some bloggers were given stipends.
I had to call you out before the sun of N20,000 (Twenty Thousand Naira) Only was credited to my account.
How was this amount arrived at? Is the N20,000 flat rate given to bloggers per quarter, month or per story? I am still in the dark as most bloggers I had interacted with reeled our figures, making me wonder if some bloggers are first class, akin to CNN, Aljazeera and BBC, while I am pushed to scramble at the level of Ogun State TV.

In the best universal practices, I had expected to be told how much the token by NBA is, how NBA arrived at who gets what and how frequently these stipends would be given-tied around NEC or per the Press Statement of the NBA we publish.
It will be interesting to read NEC Bundle and know how much NBA spends on publicity.

I will accept my appointment to the Sports & Recreation Committee, like the true sportsman I am, despite the ignoble role assigned to me.
But my engagement with blogging NBA-related stories and promoting NBA activities and events will be tied only to the affairs of my Committee.

I don’t want to stray into the turf of others, particularly the Media & Creativity Committee.
My services to any other Committee, mainly blogging their story, will be based on the conditions above.

Accept the assurances of my highest professional regard.
