The National President of the Sports Writers Association of Nigeria (SWAN) Mr. Honour Sirawoo has ensured that the association fulfilled her promise of donating a trophy in honour of the late Nta Obong.
The trophy which was redeemed according to SWAN’s promise was delivered to the management of Daar Communication by a team led by Mr. Honour Sirawoo himself.
According to reports, the trophy will be won on December 20, 2019 during the final of the 2019 SWAN 5-aside football competition for the FCT Abuja Chapter.
To give the prestigious trophy more weight, a cash sum of N50, 000 was also handed over by the association President Comrade Honour Sirawoo to redeem the trophy.
Until his death, the late 28-year-old reporter whose demise shocked the entire Sports Journalism family was a staff of Daar Communications, owners of AIT.
Sirawoo who made the presentation described the late reporter as very hardworking and respectful person who understands his job description.
In his words, Sirawoo said: “Otobong was committed to his job, there was hardly any week that passes without him calling to remind me that we need play our role as promoters and watch-dog in the sports sector”
“It is sad news for the entire sports journalism family in Nigeria as a whole”.
The fulfillment of the pledge is in line with one of Honour Sirawoo’s policies upon re-election for a second term to ensure that the association leaves up to expectation.
