 Stationery Stores FC supporters are holding on to hope that their club would make a return after a start-stop move in recent years following influential backing from government quarters.

Nigeria’s Minister of Youth and Sports made the plea to the Lagos governor Akinwunmi Ambode during their tour of the National Stadium in the country’s commercial city last week to revive the football club which has been troubled since the 1990s.

“I am appealing to the Lagos State government to resuscitate Stationery Stores. It is a club I followed and I have watched them play at the National Stadium (in Lagos). So it will be good to see the club return just as the stadium,| Dalung said.

However, the Stationery Stores Supporters Trust has applauded the country's minister for adding his voice to those calling for the revival of the club.

The supporters trust, which is registered as a cooperative multipurpose society in Lagos State, believes that Dalung’s call is “constructive, timely and capable of not just accelerating the return and sustenance of the Lagos darling team, but also facilitating the revival of such other legacy clubs as Leventis United, Raccah Rovers and many others.”

“We the members of Stationery Stores Supporters Trust, heartily commend Lagos State Governor Akinwunmi Ambode, for offering to take-over and renovate the National Stadium in Surulere, Lagos. We are equally extremely gratified by the passionate plea of Nigeria’s Honourable Minister of Sports, for the return of Stationery Stores FC – an undisputable Nigerian Legacy,” the supporters trust said.

Stationery Stores won the Nigeria top flight, the known as Pro League Division 1, in 1992 only to be relegated the following after falling short of the league rules by failing to honour matches for no genuine reasons. has been informed that Stores are preparing to take part in this year’s edition of the Lagos State FA Cup.
