The National Population Commission cannot fail Nigerians about conducting the 2023 National Population and Housing Census scheduled for the month of April.
The confirmation came from the Federal Commissioner of Kwara State, Mallam Abdurrazak Gedado, at the start of a five-day training program for 65 computer-assisted personal interviews, CAPI officers, in Ilorin on Friday.
Gidado, who announced the opening of the training program, said that the selection of officers was not a coincidence, but because of their ability to achieve the desired result of the committee.
He explained that the officers will influence the technological knowledge gained in the course of the program on the enumerators who will be involved in conducting the first digital census in the country.
The Federal Commissioner urged officers to take their training seriously and give their best for the resounding success of the census operation.
Not only is the commission ready to dispose of anyone found to be deficient, Gidado said, but it will not compromise standards or allow any action that would jeopardize the commission’s mission to conduct an acceptable, reliable and fair census operation for the country.
Four participants from each of the state’s 16 LGAs were selected for the training program by the committee.
