The Nigeria Union of Journalists, Oyo State Council, has directed the disbanded executive committee of the Sports Writers Association of Nigeria, SWAN, Oyo State chapter, under the leadership of Niyi Alebiosu, to desist from parading itself on behalf of the association.
This is sequel to the unanimous resolution of Oyo NUJ members during their monthly congress for the month of February at the NUJ Press Centre Iyaganku, Ibadan.
In a communique after the deliberation, the union which frowned at lack of regards for the rules, ethics and constitution of the union by the disbanded Oyo SWAN exco and some SWAN members, ordered the outlawed exco to handover the associationís property in their custody to Oyo State Council of NUJ without further delay.
The congress also resolved to give adequate recognition to the Seun Ajayi-Obeís led caretaker committee put together by the National Executive Council of NUJ.
The Seun Ajayi-Obeís led caretaker committee urged the state executive of NUJ to take proactive and legal means to enforce the resolution.
Meanwhile, the election to usher in a new set of executive for Oyo SWAN, has been fixed for February 28, 2019, by the Oyo SWAN electoral commmittee, at the NUJ Press Centre, Iyaganku.
