The North Cen­tral Zone of the Sports Writ­ers As­so­ci­a­tion of Nige­ria (SWAN) has con­grat­u­lated Coach Bitrus Be­warang and Al­loy Agu on their re­cent ap­point­ment as the Tech­ni­cal Di­rec­tor of the Nige­ria Foot­ball Fed­er­a­tion (NFF) and goal­keeper trainer of the Su­per Ea­gles re­spec­tively.

The as­so­ci­a­tion, in a state­ment signed by its North Cen­tral Zone sec­re­tary, Jude Opara, said the duo pos­sess the cre­den­tials and qual­i­ties to dis­charge their re­spon­si­bil­i­ties ef­fec­tively.

While com­mend­ing the NFF for th­ese ap­point­ments, SWAN also urged the Fed­er­a­tion to en­sure that they pro­vide con­ducive en­vi­ron­ment for the ap­pointees to dis­charge their du­ties dili­gently. “The era when coaches are hired with­out proper plan of how to pay their salaries and al­lowances should be a thing of the past.

“The North Cen­tral Zone of SWAN is there­fore proud to note that th­ese two gen­tle­men who can stand out as one of the best the coun­try can boast of are presently op­er­at­ing in the zone and this also un­der­lines the fact that in the near­est fu­ture, this zone will be the hob of sports in the coun­try,” the state­ment said.
