The influential Lagos caucus of the Sports Writers Association of Nigeria (SWAN) has endorsed Honour Sirawoo's presidential bid in the forthcoming national election of the association.
This is coming few days after the incumbent President, Saidu Abubakar hinted that Honour Sirawoo's antecedents and administrative acumen were assurances that he was capable of repositioning SWAN.
In a statement posted on its facebook page, Lagos SWAN said the decision was reached after a careful analysis of the state of SWAN in Nigeria, while Saidu Abubakar said during a visit on him in Kaduna, North West Nigeria by the Director General, Honour Sirawoo's campaign organisation, Alloy Chukwuemeka , that his wish was that the next president should be somebody who will do more than him.
Abubakar described Sirawoo as a humble, creative, target driven, detrabalised , charismatic and courageous man with enormous leadership qualities to take the association to the next level, saying his interest in the SWAN presidency was a welcome development.
Stating why they were in Kaduna, Chukwuemeka said they came to officially inform him of their quest to see Honour Sirawoo succeed him as President and receive his blessings, acknowledging that the incumbent president was a man of peace and worthy leader.
Chukwuemeka, who is popularly known as ACC said the campaign organisation will reach out to critical stakeholders with a view to seeking their blessings as part of it's campaign strategy and expresses confidence in the ability of Honour Sirawoo to reposition the association for greater productivity.
