Sports and Youth Development Minister, Chief Sunday Dare is expected in Ibadan on Thursday to watch the semi final games of the ongoing Oyo SWAN Football Competition.
The competition, lined up among other programmes to celebrate this year’s Week of the Sports Writers Association of Nigeria, (SWAN) Oyo State chapter, is holding at Lummy Turf in Idi Odo, Challenge Ibadan.
Chief Dare while in Ibadan, will receive an award of honour from Oyo SWAN in appreciation of his positive contributions to the development of football.
He will be the first Sport Minister in the history of Nigeria to receive such honour from SWAN in his home state.
The Minister, who was earlier expected to declare open the 2021 SWAN Week on Monday but could not make due to sudden change of his official schedule, has however assured that he will make it this time and attend the SWAN event on Thursday.
Chairman of SWAN Oyo State Chapter, Niyi Alebiosu said this year’s celebration would be great and very exciting following series of events lined up.
“We’ve been working hard to make sure we add something different from the previous editions and what other states have showcased.
“All things being equal, we’re coming out with something unique”, said Niyi Alebiosu.
