Players of Ondo State based club, Sunshine Queens have come out to register third displeasure on continuous refusal to get paid by the state government.
The players were seen to have verbally engaged with the government officials seen at the government house stressing that they deserve to be paid after seven years of being owed.
” We are tired, we have been patient enough and we deserve what belongs to us. We havent been paid a salary this year and despite that, we play our heart out for the team.
” Its funny how the team that hasnt been paid in 7months are ontop of the log. It shows how loyal and committed we are and we just want to be get what belongs to us and thats the reason we are protesting today.
” Players of Sunshine Stars have started receiving alerts and we think we deserve ours too .
The Ondo State Commissioner for Sports Saka Yusuf Ogunleye who addressed the girls said he cant promise when they will get their money, but promises to work on the process
” I cant make any promise now and it would be wrong for me to make any promise now about your salaries. All i can say is that you are going to get paid soon.
Evidently, the players werent satisfied with the promises of the Commissioner for Sports as he had also made the same promise about five months ago and so the players have vowed to keep fighting for their money until it is paid in full.
