SWAN Mourns Former NFA Chairman; Sirawoo Pays Tribute


The Sports Writers Association of Nigeria (SWAN) is still in shock over the death of the former Chairman of the Nigeria Football Association (NFA) Brigadier-General Dominic Oneya (rtd).

SWAN President, Sir Honour Sirawoo who regretted the death of the 73 year old administrator said he died when his fatherly advice was most needed to help reposition the administration of football in Nigeria.

Sirawoo who described Oneya as a diligent administrator and a stickler to due process and equity, said his sudden death was a huge loss to the Nigerian football family.

“General Oneya was an asset to Nigerian football, he was a reservoir of knowledge and a lover of the sporting media who was always ready to grant interviews at the shortest notice. He will be greatly missed by all those who came across him while in active service,” Sirawoo said in a Statement release by SWAN Secretary, Jude Opara.
