Nigeria as a country has a lot to learn from the synergy being exhibited by the Sports Writers Association of Nigeria (SWAN) in all facets of the country, Chairman, Nigeria Beach Volleyball Commission, Engineer Musa Nimrod has said.
He expressed this in Kaduna on Saturday, during the 2016 Kaduna SWAN WEEK Awards ceremony, held at the Kabir Gymnasium.
According to Nimrod who was the Chairman of the occasion, the unity of purpose and love exhibited by members of SWAN has given the association a lot of of positive things, which others are envious of.
“I came in here, I saw a lot of flow of love for one another among the SWAN members, which is something other associations and even Nigeria as a country can borrow from,” he said.
Nimrod while speaking further, promised to keep contributing towards the development of SWAN and sports in Kaduna State.
On the appeal fund for N10m which the association was seeking, he said it was a good initiative that would further develop sports in the state.
“We know that if they get the bus they are looking for, it would further give them advantage that would help them go round the 23 LGAs and help promote sports
“We are believing that before the end of January, they would raise the required funds needed so that sports in Kaduna State would benefit,” he added.
The event which attracted several dignitaries, witnessed the presentation of awards to the recipients which included Abdulrazak Usman, Barrister Aisha Sule, Dr Ademola Are, Chief Ogbonna Daniel, Alhaji Sabo Babayaro and Engineer Gana Sawa.
Others that were honoured are Chief Sunday Adeleye and the SWAN President, Honour Sirawoo.
