The Commissioner of the National Population Commission ( NPC) Kwara State, Alh. Abdulrasak Folorunsho Gidado, has disclosed that the 2023 population and housing census will be recorded as the most successful census in the history of the country.

He explained that the commission, through its online recruitment process, requests applicants for facilitators, training centre administrators, monitoring and evaluation officers, data quality managers, supervisors, as well as enumerators.
He said that to ensure a fair, efficient and transparent recruitment selection process, the commission would constitute a local government area recruitment team that would comprise three persons.
“And to us in the commission, the qualities of staff that will perform the census activities are very important.
“Therefore, having good knowledge of the content of the census document, the technique and the organisation of the census process is key to the success of the 2023 population census.”
Mr Gidado said every community in the state will have the opportunity to contribute to the Census workforce and make sure that people are adequately counted.
The commissioner said the bulk of personnel for the 2023 census will accommodate at least 37,000 people from all communities in the state.
