Adamawa Utd crisis : SWAN commends Fintiri for sacking football club’s Team manager

The Sports Writers Association of Nigeria (SWAN), Adamawa State chapter, has expresses deep gratitude to Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri for the prompt response to the communiqué it issued on the need to arrest the downward spiral in the sports sector in the state.

SWAN has last week urged governor Fintiri to sack the Emmanuel Zira led Adamawa United football club over shoddy performance and also pleaded with the governor to reinvent sports by completing the stadium project started more than a decade ago.

The governor’s sack of the Zira leadership was believed to be a response to the SWAN call for action.

“Your prompt response, gives us great hope, that other issues of funding, infrastructure and revival of the sporting events raised in the communiqué, will also receive prompt attention.

“Thank you for your uncommon commitment to the development of Adamawa,” the statement said.
