3SC’s Victory: I’m Glad, Blessed To Witness Makinde’s Feat – Ex-Sports Commissioner, Fakorede Hails Gov •Says Team Not Just A Club But A Religion
This man right here is a staunch supporter and follower of our darling Shooting Stars Sports Club (3SC).
I remember my first official outing with the Shooting Stars on the 24th of November 2019, when the team played against GO-ROUND FC — in which the club’s 3-0 win against the visitors ended their winless opening home games in the last three seasons.
With so much enthusiasm and happiness from the success of the game, this man walked up to me and lifted me off the ground, saying; “Komisona! (Commissioner), your time will bring us good tidings, we will get our promotional ticket.”
On the 1st of September 2021 when I saw him at the Commissioning of the Adamasingba Stadium, he reminded me of his prophesy in 2019, I smiled and replied, “GOD be praised forever!”.
Yesterday, the 3SC thrashed Ekiti United 6-0 to clinch the last points needed to get back into the Nigerian Premier Football League (NPFL), after 4 years of relegation in the Nigeria National League (NNL), the second tier of club football in Nigeria.
I’m happy and blessed to witness this feat — I deeply appreciate His Excellency, Governor Seyi Makinde for the opportunity to be a part of this benchmark achievement and particularly for delivering his promises to the good people of Oyo State, in record time. Clearly, this feat wouldn’t have been achieved without the ardent interest of the Governor in the team and in Sports development generally.
So, I say congratulations to us — the players, management, fans and supporters of the Oluyole Warriors, worldwide. The 3SC is not just a Club, 3SC is a Religion!
Up Sootin!!! Up Stars!!!
