“Akoro’s appointment is right and highly commendable. His wealth of experience as a former footballer and referee makes him very suitable for this post. He is a round peg in a round hole.

Aside being a former state lawmaker, the sports loving politician had also been the Chairman of the Sports Committee of the Oyo State House of Assembly. He is also the Oyo State Chairman of Nigeria Referees Association.

While congratulating Honourable Olaniyan on his new appointment, the leadership of Oyo SWAN assured the helmsman of Oluyole Warriors of the co-operation of sports journalists in the state.

The Association advised him to bring along the team’s supporters and ex players in all decisions he is making for the club.

“The task ahead are enormous but are not insurmountable. However, Honourable Akoro should be mindful of the feelings of the teeming supporters and ex players of 3SC whose works had elevated the team in the past. He should therefore seek their supports so that he can succeed”, Oyo SWAN counselled the new 3SC Sole Administrator.
