Sierra Express Media boss pledges SWASAL sponsorship if …
Sierra Express Media CEO, Chukwu Adeyemi Paul told news media at his Pademba Road office, Freetown, that he aims to see the new executive of the Sierra Leone Sports Writers Association of Sierra Leone (SWASAL) being run in a decentralized manner than a centralized government after next month’s polls. In doing, Paul said Sierra Express Media (SEM), will provide SWASAL with three major sponsorships that will help to complement the effort of Mercury International who have helped the Association over the years.
According to SEM’s CEO this is one of the ways he wants to help young people in the field of sports Journalism as they have played and still play a pivotal role in informing the masses about sports nationwide. The ex-martial arts fighter pointed out that this is the time young people should come together positively to put someone whom they think can take the Association to glory after the polls, this election is a make or break for SWASAL.
Paul also noted that if the new executive fails to run the association properly they will lose major sponsorship and this will create room for people of all works of life to either befriend or disassociate themselves with such an executive, as he himself will be the first to do such. I want to help young people in capacity building which I have noticed that young people in SWASAL have not benefited from for years.
SEM’s CEO wants to see those from the regions benefit from the facilities of SWASAL as the youths in the regions are key players in informing their people but still they are sidelined and only enjoying such facilities if they belong to certain cabal.
Paul admonished all delegates to put SAWSAL first during the elections.
Meanwhile names are yet to come up as president to succeed Fajah Barrie but according to sources, Frank Cole who has served as Secretary General in the Fajah Barrie executive, has shown interest to contest for the big boss seat, whilst proprietor of Satellite newspaper Ibrahim Babatunde Seay is another name that has surfaced to contest Frank Cole. However all is left to the delegates to choose whom to succeed BBC Fajah Barrie.
