FCT FA to send sports writers abroad for training

Adam Mohammed Mouhktar, the Chairman of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Football Association (FA), has promised to send sports journalists abroad for refresher courses.

Mouhktar made the promise while speaking with some members of the SWAN, FCT chapter, during a courtesy visit to his office in Abuja on Saturday.

He also assured of his readiness to partner with the Sports Writers’ Association of Nigeria (SWAN) in the FCT in reviving its annual awards.

Mouktar while speaking during the courtesy call made by the Bunmi Haruna-led newly elected SWAN FCT ExCo, said: “We are extremely thrilled that such a gentleman like Bunmi Haruna has emerged and I am pretty much sure that the process was free, fair and transparent and that’s why I have not heard any rancour.

“So Bunmi, congratulations not only for your victory as chairman but for having this set of very important personalities in sports in your ExCo.”

“We want to create a critical relationship with the FCT SWAN that will enhance sports development in the territory and beyond.

“I also want to use this opportunity to say I will like to partner with you to train journalists.

“It could be at home or on the continent. We are ready to help train journalists to better their trade,” he said.
