3SC fans demand Balogun’s resignation

Angry fans of troubled Shooting Stars have demanded for the resignation of General Manager Rasheed Balogun for allegedly mismanaging the club.
The fans allege that for the past three years the players of the Nigeria premier league club do not have contracts, they have been on half pay and are sacked at will.
They also claim that only six players are owned by the club with the rest of the squad on loan.
These players include Taofeek Adepoju, Seun Akinyemi, Ibrahim Babalola, Diran Oyelade and Ajani Ibrahim.
“Balogun should follow Ikhana and leave our club,” demanded one of the angry fans.
“The government monthly allocation to Shooting Stars is now N14 million and even when they were in division two they were getting N20 million two years ago. Why then should they be crying for money when all the players are paid a flat rate salary of N140,000?”
Another fan revealed current Plateau United goalkeeper Danladi was sacked for being a “destablising factor” at the club after he demanded to be given his contract last season.
“What we have is that the club prefer verbal agreements with the players and when they cannot clear the monies they owe a player, they prefer to give him a free clearance,” he accused.
“The club desperately need a focused and competent manager who can work outside what government gives the club. If there is one club who can do that in Nigeria, it will be Shooting Stars with their large fan base going beyond the country.”
The players are owed salaries running to six months.
It was further understood that veteran coach Kadiri Ikhana quit his post because of broken down working relationship with Balogun.
Shooting Stars languish second from bottom of the table with 17 points in the 17-week-old league.
