Oyo SWAN Congratulates Makinde over Election Victory
The Sports Writers Association of Nigeria, SWAN, Oyo State chapter has congratulated Oyo State Governor-elect, Engineer Seyi Makinde of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
In a congratulatory letter signed by Oyo State Chairman of SWAN, Olaolu Fawole, and made available to newsmen, members of the association described the victory of Engineer Seyi Makinde as a step that would give the sports sector a facelift.
Fawole said the sponsorship of SWAN five a side football competition by Engineer Makinde in 2013, was a laudable project that indicated that the Governor-elect would be a sports loving governor.
The association says welfare of Oyo State’s sports men and women, as well as sports programmes to discover more talents should be at the front burner of his administration.
He said two of the talents discovery sports programmes should be inter-school sport competitions and Local Government games for schools.
The association appeals to the Governor-elect not to forget the promise made sometime last year to reorganize the management of Shooting Stars Sports Club of Ibadan and Crown FC of Ogbomoso to meet global standards.
The Oyo SWAN Chairman said the zeal of Engineer Makinde to work round the clock to make the darling club of Ibadan, Shooting Stars Sports Club and Crown FC of Ogbomoso compete for continental trophies by 2021 should not be a candle in the wind.
While expressing the undiluted support of sports writers in the state for the Governor-elect, the Chairman of SWAN in Oyo State, Olaolu Fawole prays for smooth transition of power on May 29, 2019.
