RACE TO NBA 2020 PRESIDENCY AND NEED TO DEPRECATE DISINGENUOUS DISINFORMATION: A QUICK FACTS-CHECK!

 

Hour of Reckoning: three things cannot be long hidden: the Sun, the Moon, and the Truth. Truth itself is like the sun; you can shut it out only for a time, but it ain’t going away; it would come back to haunt you”

 

Key Questions:

 

    (a)     Did you know that NBA has had more non-SANs as Presidents than SANs?

    (b)        Did you know NBA has had 15 Non-SAN Presidents and 13 SAN Presidents? 

    (c)         So, why would anyone come to a sophisticated, mature mind like you with such diversionary, redundant, divisive slogan as “It’s time for a non-SAN to lead the NBA?    

    (d)        Should such a person not be regarded as unserious?

 

Now, as we count down to the 2020 NBA national elections, it is important that the undiluted truth be separated from barefaced falsehood. Below is a table containing the lists of Past & present NBA Presidents, the time they held the position of NBA President and their status as at the time they occupied the position of NBA President.

Please, let’s do better with the man of integrity: Dr Babatunde AJIBADE.
