The Group Managing Director of Complete Communications Limited, publishers of Complete Sports and owners of Completesportsnigeria.com, Alhaji Mumini Alao, will be the Chairman at the inaugural Stores FC Supporters Awards Day billed to hold on Saturday at the Legacy Pitch of the National Stadium in Surulere, Lagos.
Stationery Stores FC were the darling team of Lagos and one of the most supported clubs in Nigeria in their heyday of the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s and early 1990s. They are currently working their way back to the top after a few challenging years.
The awards, organised by Stationery Stores Supporters Trust, will honour several individuals for their selfless support rendered to the club in the past.
Some notable awardees will include Senior Evangelist Shola Idowu a.k.a Mr. Anonymous who once solely financed the club; Pa Peter Osugo who was first Team Manager of the club, and veteran sports chronicler Uncle Segun Adenuga, while post-humous awards will be given to Alhaji Taiwo 'Uncle T' Onibuje, who was the first National President of the Supporters Club, and Alhaji Sikiru Anjorin 'Baba Joo' Shittu who was former Team Manager.
Former Governor of Lagos State, Alhaji Lateef Kayode Jakande, who is also a staunch supporter of the club, will be the Father of the Day at the event scheduled to start by 3:30pm.
The star attraction planned for the event will see Athletico Adebajo Youth XI take on Search & Groom Youth XI in a commemorative match.
The Chief Host of the day is Hon. Sheriff Balogun (Sole Administrator, Surulere Local Govt.) who will be supported by Pastor Eliaship Ime-James (Interim National President), Adebayo Olowoake (President Worldwide) and Yomi Opakunle (Interim National Secretary).
