The Rivers State Governor Barr. Nyesom Wike has succeeded in bringing the congress of the International Sports Press Association (AIPS), to Port Harcourt City in Rivers State.
This was disclosed by the National President of the Sports Writers Association of Nigeria (SWAN), Mr. Honour Sirawoo who was also in attendance at the just concluded AIPS Congress holding in Budapest, Hungary today.
The decision was the high point of the 83rd Congress, as the Power of Sports (POS) Barr. Wike Nyesom lived up to the hype of the title conferred on him two years ago by the AIPS-Africa.
The congress which holds in October 2020 is expected to bring together Executive committee members from across the world.
It will also afford AIPS-Africa Congress to hold in the Garden City of Port Harcourt, which consists of National Sports Journalists Association across the African Continent.
The grant given for the global event to hold in Nigeria means Port Harcourt will become the second City to host the event, after Addis Ababa in Ethiopia hosted it in 2014. It also means Rivers State is the first State in Nigeria to host the event.
