The Ondo state government is ready to sell club Sunshine Stars should a ‘qualified’ buyer come forward.
Commissioner for Sports and Youth Development, Bamidele Ologun stated this in a chat with the media on Tuesday.
Ondo state, over the years has struggled to finance the club effectively, with players staging protests almost every season; demanding for salaries.
Ologun however said that the state is now opened to the possibility of selling the club.
“The state can decide to sell the club, Sunshine Stars FC, if we get the right price and most importantly if the right company that has the right experience comes on board.
“What is important to us is to develop these sports and developing these sports doesn’t have to be done by the state government.
“We are looking at investors who will come on board and run this club professionally and these days you know money is very essential in football. It’s big business and ordinarily, government doesn’t have anything to do with business,” he said.
