Nigerian business Akin Alabi has expressed his desire to buy Ibadan based club, Shooting Stars.
Shooting Stars is currently owned and financed by Oyo State Government but reports of unpaid salaries and financially difficulties constantly trail the club.
They currently sit 18th on the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) with 17points and are in real danger of returning to the Nigeria National League.
Alabi who is the founder of leading sports betting company, Nairabet, has revealed that he wants to buy the club if given permission by the Oyo State Governor, Abiola Ajimobi.
The entrepreneur cum politician revealed that he is one of the sponsors of the club but wants to attain full ownership.
We sponsored the club this season but it's not enough. Maybe we will launch a bit to buy it if Gov Ajimobi permits. https://t.co/15UWV70yi9— Akin Alabi (@akinalabi) May 30, 2016
