The ex Presenter of World of Sports on Osrctv also encouraged Sports Writers to embrace more creativity and excellence in their reportage of Sports activities.
In his response, the Chairman of SWAN in Ondo State, Wahab Bankole appreciated the Mr Ogedengbe for the enlightenment just as he promised an improved relationship with past members of the association within and outside the state in order to build upon the current quality of Sports Reportage.
SWAN Ondo State Chapter Also Agreed To unanimously work in creating a Sports Compendium that will include all past and present sports activities and achievements of the State.
