The Sports Writers Association of Nigeria (SWAN) Anambra state chapter, has congratulated Ikemefuna Asika on his emergence as the Vice President, Southeast Zone of the association.
Asika's appointment was contained in a letter signed by Benjamin Isaiah and Ikenna Okonkwo, the National President and Secretary General respectively dated July 1.

The letter read “I write to inform you that your nomination as Vice President, SouthEast in the Isaiah Benjamin-led administration has been approved
by NEC.
“The appointment which automatically makes you a NEC and Full Council member, gives you another opportunity to serve the Association, in line with the responsibilities of the office as spelt out in the SWAN Statute.
“Therefore, you are expected to justify the confidence reposed in you by the President and NEC in carrying out your duties for the growth of the Association,”
