“I’ll also cultivate support for the team from my fellow business associates and friends by coming to motivate the team during their home matches. By this, I’m sure the boys will give their best and return 3SC back to elite cadre this season” Onimalu noted.
Meanwhile, Nigerian musical icon and Chairman of Fresh FM Radio Station in Ibadan, Dr. Olayinka Joel Ayefele, MON, has also pledged to support the club.He made this pledge when he played host to key officers of the Shooting Stars’ Supporters Club during the week in his office.
The supporters’ club officers, led by their chairman, Pastor Akinade Okediran were in Ayefele’s office to seek for his support in connection with the club’s plan to launch a N500 million fund for the football team on July 12, 2018.
“I am one of the most ardent supporters of 3SC. I have been in love with the team for several years.“I am more in support of the club because it is the pride of Ibadan, Oyo State, Nigeria and Africa. The football club is a legacy we must all be seen as supporting,” Ayefele said.
