The Ondo State chapter of the Sports Writers Association of Nigeria (SWAN) has formed a caretaker committee to run the association’s operations for the next three months.
This was part of the resoutions reached at the association”s congress held in Akure on Tuesday.
The Wahab Bankole-led interim committee was inaugurated on October 27, 2023 to oversee the association’s affairs in the wake of the botched election.
Bankole expressed gratitude to the association’s members for their support and comradery in achieving his goals during the past four months.
He said the association experienced great achievements during his tenure.
“The welfare of members of the association is always paramount and with the little resources, we did our best to promote your welfare. The association also secured more slots for members who covered the national sports festival in Asaba on the bill of Ondo State Government,” he said.
The congress, however, dissolved the Wahab-led caretaker committee after he announced his intention not to continue as the chairman of the committee, which led to the nomination of a new caretaker committee.
The committee’s chairman, Mr. Femi Dairo of NTA, was elected, along with the secretary, Adewale Momoh of the Correspondents’ Chapel, and a member, Sukanmi Elujoba of Adaba FM.
