The Federal Commissioner of the National Population Census (NPC) in Abia State, Chief Johnny Nwabuisi, has said the 2023 population census data would be accurate.
Nwabuisi, who spoke at a media briefing at the commission’s headquarters in Umuahia, to announce the beginning of online recruitment of ad hoc workers for the 2023 population and housing census, said NPC had concluded arrangements that would ensure the exercise would be thorough.
The NPC commissioner, who said over a 1.5million ad hoc officials nationwide were expected to be engaged during the exercise, added that the commission would use personnel who were ICT (Information and Communications Technology) compliant to perform the exercise that would be technologically driven, with Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE) holders as the least qualified ad hoc officials.
Nwabuisi said the population census data-capturing process would be electronically done, adding that the commission adopted the process to guard against falsification, corruption, or any form of data manipulation, as there would not be any form of paperwork during the exercise.
On the fears that the exercise would clash with the general election, he said the census would hold next April.
