SWAN Challenges Gov on Budget

Date: 2020-12-16

The Kwara State chapter of the Sports Writers Association of Nigeria (SWAN), has urged Governor Abdul Rahman Abdul Razaq, to prioritise the rehabilitation of sporting facilities as stated in the budget presented yesterday.

The state Secretary of the association, Olayinka Owolewa, recalled in a statement that the Governor mentioned, as part of his plans for 2021 fiscal year, the rehabilitation of sporting facilities when he presented a budget proposal of N123,091,307,468 to the state’s House of Assembly.

The Kwara SWAN Scribe appealed to the governor to do things differently from his successors who had many times promised to fix these facilities at the state’s Stadium Complex without action.

The assocation also appealed to Governor Abdul Razaq to consider the construction of new facilities at the senatorial district level so that the development of Sports can spread across the state.

"We want to thank His Excellency for what he has done, especially on the revival of the state Sports Festival after its 15 years absence. "We are also aware that work has commenced at a location inside the state stadium complex for some new Squash Courts, this is highly commendable.

"We believe that sport is capable of fighting social vices and youth restiveness if properly harnessed, through the provision of sporting facilities. "We are also aware the Governor's support to the state Football club, Kwara United and his effort in the completion of the state Football House" Owolewa said.

The association challenged everyone saddled with the responsibility of Sports in the state to properly guide the Governor in ensuring sporting facilities witnessed a turnaround in the year 2021.

The body assured the governor of its support at all times to help spread his effort geared towards restoring the state's lost glories in sports.
