The publisher and managing editor of The INQUIRER newspaper, Atty. Philip N. Wesseh – PNW – has scheduled a mediatory conference to settle the disagreement between some members of the Sports Writers Association of Liberia (SWAL) calling themselves ‘Majority Bloc’ and the leadership of the association.
Mr. Wesseh noted in a press release yesterday that the meeting will be held Saturday, April 2, at the headquarters of the Press Union of Liberia (PUL) on Clay Street at 11:30 a.m.
Mr. Wesseh said it is disheartening to note that sports writers, who are to be unifiers, are having disagreement among themselves, which is not good for the development of Liberian sports.
The Liberian media executive, who also joined the profession as a sports reporter from New Kru Town, wants to use his wisdom to make sure there is peace and harmony among members of SWAL.
He is therefore calling on the leadership of SWAL and members of the ‘Majority Bloc’ of SWAL to be present at the meeting.
Others invited for the meeting include PUL President Mr. K. Abdullai Kamara; SWAL founding Secretary General, Mr. Omari Jackson; former Secretary General, Mr. Akosa Ike; former president and current director of CEMESP, Mr. Boss Malcolm Joseph; former presidents, Mr. Hilary Justine Conole and Momolu V.O. Sirleaf; former vice president, Horatio Bobby Willie; and veteran Vincent Yelegar.
Mr. Wesseh is also calling on all former SWAL officials and well-wishers to attend the meeting.
