SWAN Congratulates New FCT Chapter Exco

The National Executive Committee (NEC) of the Sports Writers Association of Nigeria (SWAN) congratulates the newly elected State Executive Committee of its FCT Chapter led by Mr. Ndubueze Chidoka.

Despite the numerous challenges in the buildup to the election, it is gratifying to note that FCT SWAN chapter was able to overcome those challenges both from some insiders and their collaborators from outside the Association.

This is sequel to the report of the three-man NEC delegate that supervised the said election in line with Article 12 (g)(ii) of the SWAN Statute.

According to the report by the delegate led by the South-South Vice President of SWAN, Bonny Nyong, the election was conducted in a very peaceful and convivial atmosphere to the admiration of everyone.

NEC wants to advise the elected Chairman and his executive members to be magnanimous in victory and ensure they accommodate every bonafide member of the chapter. To this effect, the Executive Committee may consider setting up a reconciliation committee to reconcile any member who may have been angered by the outcome of the election.

Similarly, the Executive Committee should also at all times knowing that SWAN is a professional body, endeavour to pilot its affairs in line with the Statute of the Association.

Going forward, the leadership of FCT chapter should encourage its members to regularly update their membership because that is the only way they will be eligible to participate in every activity of the Association both in the chapter and at the national level.

It must also be noted that the NEC under the leadership of Sir, Honour Sirawoo will continue to work and collaborate with the various chapters to develop the Association.

There was uncertainty after it became known Everton had put their former manager high on a list of potential replacements for Carlo Ancelotti.

It had been anticipated Moyes’ West Ham future would have been made clear by now, but it is understood there are no issues over the new deal.

At West Ham, Moyes feels he is capable of putting together a squad that it can challenge towards the top end of the Premier League on a regular basis, as he did when he was in charge at Goodison Park between 2002 and 2013.

The manager is in his second spell at London Stadium, having returned in December 2019 to replace Manuel Pellegrini.

Over the past 18 months, he has taken West Ham from a relegation battle to Europa League qualification.
