SWAN Vows To Boycott Rivers United Matches, As Eguma Boys Walk On Tight Rope In CAF League

There seems to be more trouble for Rivers United who are walking on a tight rope after a one-all draw with the visiting Sudanese giants,Al-Hilal in the CAF Champions League match on Sunday, as Sports Writers Association of Nigeria (SWAN) in the state  has vowed to boycott  matches of the  Stanley Eguma tutored side indefinitely

The association accused  the club's  new management  of not  respecting and recognitioning its members.
The State Chairman of SWAN, Sarah David at the end of an emergency meeting held at the Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium in Port Harcourt on Sunday,explains that the decision to give a no-show to anything involving Rivers United henceforth, is the best the association can arrive at in the face of prevailing circumstances.

SWAN in a statement by its State Assistant Secretary, Fisayo Dairo,
noted with dismay, the unprecedented level of disdain and lack of regard for members of the fourth estate of the realm as portrayed conspicuously by the interim administrator of the club, Barrister Christopher Green.

The statement reads in parts
"Green,it must be articulated, had claimed before and after Rivers United's CAF Champions League clash with Young Africans of Tanzania that Rivers State Executive Governor, Barrister Nyesom Wike does not need media attention and publicity for the club hence journalists could cover the club's games at their own risk".

"The current Executive committee of SWAN Rivers will continue to take steps aimed at positioning and repositioning the association for greatness and due recognition as the umbrella body of a group of professionals who stop at nothing to achieve the effective discharge of their duties".

SWAN Rivers thank members for their great cooperation and unanimous agreement while taking this painstaking but highly imperative decision.
