Rlg Communications Group, manufacturers of the Uhuru Tablet and co- sponsors of the just ended Big Brother Africa "The Chase" has announced its intention to appoint one of the Big Brother housemates as its brand ambassador.
The question on their mind, however, is which of the housemates most qualifies for this? As far as the communications outfit is concerned this has not been an easy question to answer as there have been divergent views leading to the organization's decision to bring the matter to the court of social media.
Rlg will, therefore, be relying on public inputs to nominate housemates of their choice for this honour, which we have been reliably informed will be very lucrative for the successful candidate. Members of the public are enjoined to vote for housemates of their choice via, its Rlg Nigeria facebook page or its twitter handle @rlg Nigeria.
It is instructive to note that just a couple of months ago the company sponsored the "put a smile on their faces" event which was an initiative of the Put A Smile n their Faces Foundation in which money and ICT devices were donated to homes specialised in catering for children with special needs.
Immediately after that the company sponsored the BRT free bus ride for Lagosians in which they transported residents of Lagos state free for one month on selected routes (an initiative that is usually associated with governmental bodies).
But Rlg did not stop there, because of the success of the BRT free bus ride and the attendant clamour for it to continue, Rlg is presently replicating the exercise in Osun State where they are currently training youths in applied ICT under the Osun State Youth Empowerment Scheme-Technology (OYESTECH), and also building a computer and mobile phone assembly plant.
Under the Osun state exercise, commuters are being conveyed within Osogbo and also between Osogbo and neighbouring towns using the mini buses popularly called "Korope" that are prevalent in the State.
As if that is not enough they are also offering scholarships to students as well as sending a selected number of the graduates of the OYESTECH programme to their assembly plant in Ghana for further training which ordinarily is outside their terms of reference with regards to the OYESTECH programme.
Instructively, Rlg Communications (Nigeria) Ltd is a member of the Rlg Communications Group Ltd with its Global Office in Dubai.
