"I must commend Abuja SWAN for the steps you are taking in sports this time around; your EXCO is the first body under the NUJ to pay our organization a visit which is commendable. Also, I want to use this opportunity to express dissatisfaction at Nigeria's poor performance at the London Olympics, it was shameful that as big as Nigeria is, we failed to win even a wooden medal," Ali said.
Ali however pledged to support SWAN FCT chapter in it upcoming SWAN week slated for November 14th.
