Former Speaker, House of Representatives, Mr Dimeji Bankole has performed the ground breaking ceremony of the Sports Writers Association of Nigeria, SWAN, Estate in Ogun State with a call on members to prepare for their retirements by investing in something meaningful for a secured future.

Performing the ceremony at Masa Community, in Kobape area of Ogun state, Mr Bankole commended the efforts of the SWAN executives for providing affordable land for their members.

He promised to continue to support initiatives geared towards improving the lives of Nigerians particularly journalists.

Also, the Olu of Kobape, Oba Olufemi Taylor who noted that the estate would enhance socio-economic development of the area assured SWAN of peaceful coexistence with the residents of the community.

The partner of the project, Mr Victor Eniola-Mark said the partnership with SWAN executive was borne of the need to ensure that journalists become house owners in spite of the meagre amounts being received as salaries.

Earlier, Ogun State SWAN Chairman, Alhaji Hakeem Akintunde said the estate was part of the initiatives of the executive to improve the welfare of members of the association.
