All is yet to be calm with SWAN Oyo State, as the caretaker committee to pilot the affairs of the state recently has come out to disown in strong terms by drawing attention of all members and stakeholders in Oyo State sports to immediately disown a “communique purportedly written by an illegal congress, called by a defunct Oyo SWAN leadership, led by its former chairman, Mr Niyi Alebiosu.
According to the committee chairman, Oluseun Ajayi-Obe, We state, after our delibrations that:
Oyo State SWAN pledges full support and loyalty to the South West Zonal leadership, led by Mr. Adeboye Ajayi and Mr. Dele Ogunleye. We equally pass a vote of confidence on the President, Mr Honour Sirawoo and the National Executive Committee (NEC) for taking necessary steps towards ensuring upward mobility of the association in Oyo State and Nigeria.
We note NEC’s proper display of knowledge on the Statute of SWAN, demonstrated in its constitution of the Caretaker Committee to fill a vacuum created after the former Exco announced its detachment from SWAN NEC activities.
We therefore call on all SWAN members and stakeholders to discountenance all the claims in the “communique” and focus on restoring the dignity of SWAN.
Furthermore, we admonish all members of the public not to relate in any form with the former Exco, as whoever relates with the defunct Exco or any of its members does so at his/ her own risk.
Finally, we warn impostors to stop the practice, or risk being reported to the law enforcement agents.
