Chairman of the state Sports Writers Christian Association, Eze said it is a culture for some journalist to see only the negative side when reporting an event.

While admonishing them, he said such reporters may think their report will draw attention for a temporary and selfish benefit but their myopic reasoning will blindfold them to know that they are giving Nigeria as a country a negative image.

Also, Secretary, Delta State SWAN, Ogo Clarkson reminded all journalists that an event like this is a festival of getting to meet colleagues.

The CEO of Topsportsafrik reminded those who are sourcing for negative stories to know that the fact Delta state is a Big Heart that accommodates everyone especially with the access to the Chairman of Delta State Sports Commission, Tonobok Okowa, does not mean that they will encourage any form of distraction.
