As a relationship manager and business owners
I have the opportunity to work in an organization where I do manage thousands of customers inquiries on various issues to their satisfaction

As former students leader I believe the most complex set of people to managed is the student and if I can successfully .managed their affairs both at the L.G level and departmental
I will also be successful in managing my constituency very well
One of the strategies is to be conveying quarterly constituency meeting where all issues affecting us will be discussed and solutions provided on regular basis
But you do know that those you’ll be representing are larger than this number….
In statistics will do refers to a sample as a subset of a unit
When u have random sample of 30 in a population of 1000
That can be used to represent a whole population because the way you treat a fraction is d way u will treat the whole population
For instance if I can be managing customers both the cool and temperament ones in my organization my constituency which comprises of 4 big towns will not be exception.

I was able to organized them and registered the association with the school authority
Today national association of akoko north west students and National congress of Akoko students is duly registered and recognized at Federal polytechnic
