SWAN congratulates Soludo, seeks funding for sports
The Sports Writers Association of Nigeria (SWAN), Anambra chapter, has congratulated Prof. Chukwuma Soludo on his one year anniversary in office as governor of the state.
SWAN also commended Soludo for the success of his administration in the sports sector.
Anthony Oji, Chairman of SWAN in Anambra, who spoke to journalists after the one year anniversary town hall meeting in Awka, on Saturday however noted that Soludo did not mention activities in the sports sector as part of his achievement.
Oji lauded the exploits of team Anambra at the 21st National Sports Festival in Delta last year, where the state won 39 medals, including six gold, nine silver and 24 bronze medals.
He said it was expected that the one year anniversary event would be the best time to specially welcome the team and showcase to the public the successes being recorded in the area of sports.
“The body of sports writers under the umbrella of SWAN wish to join the people of Anambra to congratulate Mr Governor on this occasion of one year anniversary and the much he has been able to achieve within the period.
“But as stakeholders in sports, we are concerned that the sector could not get a mention during the governors account of stewardship. Interestingly, a lot has been going on even though modestly.
