According to the communique, “we attested to the fact that Sunshine Stars FC is owned by the Ondo State government, however the government must ensure that the club gets out of the precarious position on the league table.
“We therefore solicit sufficient funding in order to meet the financial obligations of the team towards assisting them to prosecute their remaining matches.
“It added that the critical roles of the state football association and Sunshine Stars supporters were amplified while the congress urged the handlers of the Ondo State football Agency to accord the state FA their dues.”
Ondo Football Association and other Stakeholders were charged to go all out and do their best to salvage the team from the danger zone.
