SWAN gives Oliseh 7 day ultimatum to expose alleged dubious sports writers


Sports Writers Association of Nigeria, have given Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh, a seven day day ultimatum to name the journalists he claimed approached him for money in exchange for favourable reports.
On Sunday, in a YouTube video outburst, Oliseh accused some unnamed journalists of trying to extort money from him.

In a five paragraph press statement on Tuesday, and which was signed by the Secretary General of SWAN, Andrew Abah, Oliseh was mandated to substantiate his allegation that some journalists accosted him, and asked for money in exchange for favourable reports.
The statement also recalled that Oliseh claimed that some journalists even went as far as acting as agents in order to get some players into the Eagles.
Part of the statement reads: “Our attention has been drawn to a recent statement credited to the Head Coach of the Super Eagles Mr.Sunday Ogorchukwu Oliseh that some members of the Sports Writers Association of Nigeria (SWAN) have been approaching him requesting for money to enable them write favourable reports for him, and that some are acting as agents requesting that he invites certain players to camp so that they can do business with them.
“The leadership of the Sports Writers Association of Nigeria (SAWN) in its quest to ensure continous sanity in the profession, and for the purpose of the change mantra which is gradually revolving round every aspect of the economy, is requesting that the Head Coach names these journalists that approached him within the next seven days.
“This has been imperative considering the recent bashing Sports Writers have been receiving from the NFF and its employees. It would be recalled that the NFF President only recently at the National Assembly took a swipe on the Sports Writers for being the brain behind their inability to secure sponsors for the Federation.
