NPC retools journalists for 2023 census
To ensure effective operations and delivery of 2023 census, chairman of the National Population Commission, Nasir Isa Kwarra, is staging a capacity-building workshop for journalists.
While welcoming participants to the three-day event in Karu, Nasarawa State, yesterday, Kwarra said getting the 2023 population and housing census right “is a task that must be done and the commission is committed to ensuring that everything about the census is done rightly and professionally.”
He added: “We have the clear vision, commitment and professional capacity to deliver on this historic mandate.
“With the approval of Mr. President for the conduct of the next population and housing census in 2023, preparations are in top gear for the successful implementation of the census project. Census is a national event, and is the responsibility of every citizen to participate by presenting themselves to be counted. The commission will no doubt need the support of all stakeholders to deliver to the country credible and reliable data it can use for sustainable development planning.”
