Looking at it deeply, creating a Facebook page is free but the NSC could have hired an agency to run the page. The page currently has 5,444 Likes and doesn’t look like anything managed by a professional social media consultant. There’s a bit of conversation with fans as they commission’s page replies to questions concerning winners of competitions.

Chief Ekeji will also explain the expenditure behind spent to rehabilitate the National Stadium in Lagos and Liberty Stadium in Ibadan.

We’ll update you as more details unfold.
