Social Media Desk Officers from the Public Relations department as  
schedule Officers to provide round the clock service to stakeholders and members of the general public.”, he concluded.

Expartiating further on this, the NCS image-maker, Mr. Wale Adeniyi enjoined

  10. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

A lot more people really need to check this out and understand this side of the story. I can’t believe you are not more popular because you certainly have the gift.
