The President of the Sierra Leone of Association of Journalists (SLAJ), Ahmed Sahid Nasralla, has stated that Sports Writers Association of Sierra Leone (SWASAL) should be a shining example to other affiliate bodies in every aspect of its conduct and administration of its affairs noting that the association is now 47yrs, three years younger than SLAJ.
Making his statement at the Atlantic Hall at the Siaka Stevens stadium in Freetown on Friday 28th May 2021 during the opening ceremony of the SWASAL’s Triennial Elective Congress, the SLAJ President said such annual gatherings provide an opportunity for the Association to take stock, reflect on its past activities, highlight its successes and challenges and chart the way forward by looking at prospects and opportunities for its growth and development.
“Being the oldest affiliate body of SLAJ, SWASAL (SWASAL is now 47yrs, three years younger than SLAJ) should be a shining example to other affiliate bodies in every aspect of its conduct and administration of its affairs. That should be a source of inspiration for SWASAL and the key driving force in its advancement.”
President Nasralla thanked SLAJEC for presiding over the elections processes and procedures, and to Mercury International, Rokel Commercial Bank, other sponsors who continue to support SWASAL, the media, and the development of sports in the country.
He concluded by admonishing the incoming executive to work towards repositioning SWASAL to take its rightful place in the country’s sports industry by helping to promote fair play, transparency, accountability, unity, peace and development.
