Nairabet CEO Otunba Akin Alabi has expressed his desire to buy Nigeria Professional Football League outfit, Shooting Stars with the aim of reviving its fortunes.

The Ibadan based outfit are not enjoying the best of time as they are languishing in the relegation zone of the NPFL with players and technical crew owed backlog of salaries, while coaches Kadiri Ikhana and Friday Christopher have stepped down as handlers of the team.

Commenting on Goal’s editorial Private ownership: The way forward for Shooting Stars, Otunba Alabi though admits that he has not done enough for the Oluyole Warriors, but feels the surest bet to making the club a force to be reckoned with again is by taking over the club should the Oyo state governor Abiola Ajimobi give his blessings.

“We sponsored the club this season but it's not enough. Maybe we will launch a bit to buy it if gov Ajimobi permits,” Alabi tweeted.

Alabi is a Shooting Stars fan and it will be recalled that he presented a brand new 32-seater coaster bus to the team at the beginning of the season.

3SC are one of the most successful clubs in the country with five Premier League titles, four Federation Cups, one CAF Confederation Cup and a CAF Cup to their credit. (goal.com)
