The National Chairman of the Nigeria Football Supporters Club (NFSC) Rev. Sam Ikpea has congratulated Sir Honour Sirawoo on his elevation as Permanent Secretary in the Rivers State Service Commission.
Rev. Sam, who spoke exclusively to Sports Intelligence Magazine on the elevation, simply described the development as putting a round peg in a round hole.
“Sirawoo is a man whose wealth of experience need to be compensated and I think the best way to do that is to elevate him to such position” he started.
“I have monitored SWAN as a body under Sirawoo, the development taking place there is an offshoot of knowledge acquired from his years of experience in the Rivers State Service Commission and am sure the state and SWAN will gain more following his elevation”.
Rev. Sam Ikpea did not also hesitate to commend the Rivers State Governor, Barr. Wike Nyesom for his vision, and for also recognizing the commitment shown by an illustrious son who has made significant impact in the state and nation as a whole .
He also used the opportunity to congratulate the Rivers State Governor cum Power of Sports (POS) in Africa for successfully making it possible for Rivers to become the second City after Addis Ababa to host the AIPS World Congress which is expected to hold later this year.
“It is a very good step after many years, particularly as it looked as if Africa will not host world sports Journalists soon (AIPS). But this is now made possible with the support of Barr. Nyesom Wike, and I think he has done a great job”.
While also commending the governor, he also reminded him to ensure Sirawoo does not abandon SWAN following his elevation as Permanent Secretary in the state, as this could impede the developments made by the Association under his watch.
“I understand it is going to be a bigger task now, becoming a Permanent Secretary and also serving as the National President of SWAN. But I believe he is capable and with support from the Barr. Wike, he should be able to accomplish the task” he concluded.
