President of the Sports Writers Association of Nigeria (SWAN) Honour Sirawoo has made a passionate appeal to the Kaduna State Government to donate a bus to the Kaduna State Chapter of the association.
He made the appeal during the closing of the 2016 Kaduna SWAN Week, held at the Kabir Gymnasium, where he was the Chief Host.
The president said he always felt sympathy for Kaduna’s contingent whenever they attended SWAN events because they are the only state that board public transport to attend such events.
“During my two terms of serving as Rivers State SWAN Chairman, we got two buses and now as the National President, I have been able to get a jeep,” he said.
Speaking further, he said that Kaduna as the nerve centre of the north deserved nothing but the best, in view of its pride of place not only in the north, but in Nigeria.
He explained that Kaduna was like a home to him, because it has produced two past SWAN Presidents, and the immediate past president, Malam Saidu Abubakar supported him to emerge president.
“Kaduna SWAN deserves better than this. Similarly, Kaduna deserves a Premier League Soccer team and I would appeal to his Excellency to support Kaduna United FC to regain promotion to the NPFL,” he said.
