The PDP Chairman who is also the president, and Sole sponsor of Go-Round Football Club, the 2016 Rivers FA Champions expressed confidence that Sirawoo would do Rivers State proud given his wealth of experience in the sports writing fraternity, having served as Chairman of SWAN in Rivers State as well as National Vice President, South-South Zone.

Sirawoo’s emergence is one of the best things to happen to Rivers State and I make bold to say he is a square peg in a square hole,” the Rivers pillar of sports declared.
Bro. Obuah who is also the patron of SWAN expressed the hope that Sirawoo’s SWAN presidency would go a long way in complementing the efforts of Governor Nyesom Wike in promoting sports in the State, stressing that his victory is no doubt a remarkable dividend of Gov Wike’s effective governance and untiring efforts to see that all sectors of the State economy are given deserving attention.
The State PDP Chairman expressed joy that Governor Wike’s overwhelming popularity and goodwill has yielded fruits, adding that Sirawoo’s victory would serve as inspiration to the youths, especially journalists in the State.
