As Muslims all over the world mark end of 30-day Ramadan fast sallah with the celebration of Eid-el-fitri, Chairman of Sports Writers Association of Nigeria (SWAN), FCT chapter, Comrade Ndubueze Chidoka is felicitating with members
Comrade Chidoka while speaking through statement in Abuja yesterday beckoned on Muslim faithful not to despair no matter the challenges faced in the course of performing their professional duties.
He also enjoined all to continually pray for a stronger and more formidable SWAN which has remained a rallying force in Sports writing and reporting, a vital tool needed to push sport development in every frontier.
His words: “As our Muslim brothers and sisters celebrate sallah to mark end of 30-day Ramadan fast, I call on all members to remain committed and always work towards formidable ways of upholding the tenets of our revered profession.
“I equally commend our colleagues who persevered all through the period of fasting despite the demands of herculean task of carrying out their duties.
“May your act of generosity never go unrewarded? May all your positive prayers be answered? May your act of abstinence be rewarded with clean results? And May your fasting be acknowledged by Almighty Allah.
“I therefore remind our members on the need to always work harmoniously as a body, especially in the area of thinking and proffering solutions capable of setting progressive agenda for Nigeria’s sports development through timely write ups and presentations.
“I assure you that SWAN particularly in the nation’s capital will continue to seek for welfare of its members at all times. Barka de Sallah.”
