Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, yesterday, joined the country’s football family to mourn renowned sportswriter and former Chairman of Sports Writers Association of Nigeria (SWAN), Edo State chapter, Comrade Ahmed Aigbona.

Obaseki, in a statement, said the late Aigbona personified excellence in sports journalism and served as a rallying point for sports stakeholders in Edo State and Nigeria. “I received with rude shock and disbelief, the sad news of the death of renowned sports writer and former chairman of Sports Writers Association of Nigeria (SWAN), Edo State chapter, Comrade Ahmed Aigbona. The late Aigbona personified excellence in sports reporting in the country. He was a dogged, vibrant and committed patriot who brought passion to his job, deploying his expertise and wealth of experience to advance sports writing and development in Edo State and Nigeria.

“His sudden demise has, indeed, created a big vacuum in the sports writers’ family; he will be sorely missed.

“My deep condolences to his immediate family, friends and associates, the SWAN family, journalists in Edo State and indeed the world.”

Also saddened by the loss of its member, Sports Writers Association of Nigeria (SWAN) President, Honour Sirawoo, described Aigbona as a very jovial personality, who easily drew people close to him with his huge sense of humour.

Sirawoo also noted that as Edo SWAN Chairman, Aigbona contributed immensely to the development of sports just as he also did when he became a member of the Edo State Football Association, a position he held until his passing.

Sirawoo also decried the state of Nigerian hospitals, even as he charged governments at all levels to pay more attention to the health of Nigerians.

“If the hospitals were adequately equipped, may be the story of Ahmed would have been different because we heard that the first hospital where he was taken to did not have oxygen to assist him.”
