The National Population Commission in Nigeria says the vision of the 2023 census is designed to produce not only accurate, reliable, and acceptable census data but also inclusive and user-friendly census data.
The statement was made by the Chairman of Commission, Mr. Nasir Kwarra during a three-day National Level Training of Training Centre Managers and Administrators, TCMA, for the 2023 Population and Housing Census in Abuja Nigeria’s Capital.
Mr. Kwarra said: “This desire has informed the scope and quality of preparations made for the census thus far.
“Census is a national event and is the responsibility of every citizen to participate by presenting themselves to be counted.”
“Over the years, the Commission has invested considerable time and resources planning for the successful conduct of the 2023 Population and Housing Census.
“Selection into the programme was based on the confidence the Commission has in their capability to meet expectations.”
“The National Population Commission is irrevocably committed to positively rewrite the history of censuses in Nigeria and deliver to this great nation accurate and reliable census data.”
The Chairman of the Commission appealed to Nigerians to join the Commission in the bid to give the country accurate and reliable data through the forthcoming 2023 Population and Housing Census.
“Preparations for the 2023 Population and Housing Census are on course and the Commission is confident that the prospect for an accurate and reliable census appears brighter than ever.
“This optimism is rooted in the fact that the present Commission has taken time to identify and deliberate on issues that stalled past censuses and has resolved to avoid those pitfalls through the adoption of scientific planning and modern digital technology.”
