Sports writers in the country have been urged to uphold the legacy of the founding fathers and ensure that critical but balanced stories and articles are produced to ensure the positive development of sports.
Speaking earlier this week at the official launch of SWAL’s membership drive in Monrovia, Youth and Sports Minister Eugene Nagbe reflected on the beginning of the association and paid a glowing tribute to SWAL’s founding secretary general Omari Jackson for the vision to set up the organization.
“I urge all of you to identify yourselves with SWAL,” Minister Nagbe said, “by getting involved in its activities.”
He said SWAL is one of the most effective PUL auxiliaries, to show a positive direction, as a specialized body.
“Go out there and identify players and support every sporting organization in the country,” he said.
He told the gathering of SWAL members that the association is a partner to the Ministry of Youth and Sports.
“SWAL,” he said, “is not an appendage but a critical partner in the promotion and development of sports.”
Meanwhile, Minister Nagbe made a cash donation of Ld25, 000.00 and co-launcher and ex SWAL president Malcolm W. Joseph donated Ld8, 500.00
