The Chairman, Nigerian Union of Journalists (NUJ) FCT Chapter, Comrade Emmanuel Ogbeche, has congratulated the newly elected FCT Sports Writers Association on Nigeria (SWAN) Executive Members after the successful Elective Congress held at the FCT NUJ office, Abuja.
Ogbeche advised the Bunmi Haruna-led board to put whatever had happened before the elections behind and open their hearts to welcome other members to operate as one family.
“First of all, congratulations to you all on the successful elections that ushered you into the leadership of SWAN in the next three years.
“I want you to embrace members who are aggrieved so that the family will remain one. Together we stand.
“You should know that you have a responsibility to discharge and I know that you will succeed.”
Meanwhile, Bunmi Haruna has said the chapter is one family while speaking after the swearing-in ceremony.
He further stressed the importance of taking the association to a greater height with the welfare of members paramount in achieving this.
We are one united family. The election will always come with its up and downs,” Haruna said.
“But now that the election has been conducted successfully, we will all come to the round table to work towards steering the association to a greater height.
“We want to thank the NUJ, FCT chapter chairman, Emmanuel Ogbeche, for opening its centre to us to hold the election.
“We pledge our allegiance to the body.
“Our tenure will be welfare-target oriented and people-friendly.”
