NPC cautions personnel on demarcation in Anambra State
The Federal Commissioner, National Population Commission (NPC) in Anambra State, Mr. Chidi Ezeoke, has charged personnel involved in the enumeration area demarcation to take the exercise seriously to guarantee its success.
Ezeoke gave the charge at Ekwulobia in Aguata Local Council yesterday while declaring open a three-day training for over 57 supervisors and demarcation officers attending the programme. He disclosed that five local councils of the state had so far been demarcated, expressing hope that the remaining local councils would be covered in record time.
He urged the leadership of the host community to make the environment conducive for the officers, including provision of welfare packages to ensure they put in their best to the assignment.
Ezeoke also solicited the support and co-operation of the residents by allowing the demarcators to carry out their duties professionally as well as give them unfettered access to facilities and places to be demarcated.He, however, described the exercise to be critical element that constituted the foundation on which the entire census architecture would be anchored.
The commissioner advised that the officers should consider themselves privileged to have been chosen for the exercise, stressing that any mistake could mar the overall results of the census.“This job is a critical national assignment and must be given all the seriousness it deserved.
“You must consider yourselves lucky to be engaged to work for Nigeria; you can’t afford to fail the nation. If you make any mistake, the output will be faulty and you’ll have yourselves to blame,” he added.He said that the commission would not hesitate to kick out anyone who makes mistakes in the course of the job. Ezeoke, who allayed fears of any unforeseen dangers, assured the officers of maximum security, noting that the pro-Biafran groups are brothers and sisters who would not want to hurt their relatives.
