Ologun said this at a press conference to conclude the four-day partnership application program between Sunshine Stars and Moyero Football Club.
He explained that with the right investors the government would sell Sunshine Stars FC which was founded in 1995 by a former military administrator of the State, retired Colonel Ahmed Usman.
According to Ologon, the state is looking for investors who would come in and manage the club professionally, unlike what has been done in the past.
“The state may decide to sell the Sunshine Stars FC club if we get the right price and especially if the right company with the right experience comes in.
“What is important for us is the development of these sports and the development of these sports does not necessarily have to be done by the state government.
“We are looking at investors who will come in and manage this club professionally and you know these days money is very essential in football, it is a big business and usually the government has nothing to do with business,” he said.
He confirmed that the state is ready to sell the club, so that the government can concentrate on the development of grassroots sports.
“The government should be there to form policies and other things; so why not (sell) the club. For example, if my friend, Adriano (foreign scout) returns to Europe and is able through our partner Mr. Lanre Moyero, we can bring one billion dollars to get Sunshine Stars FC.
“And for us, once Sunshine Stars FC is sold, for example, we can always have the resources to do what we need to do, grassroots football, that’s the main deal; that’s where the real development is.
“What the government cares about is running Sunshine Stars FC professionally.
