Ezeoke noted that the number of functionaries to be recruited in each category would depend on the number of available vacancies in each state, which will be derived largely from the total number of enumeration areas in the state
According to him, the categories of the field staff include: facilitators, training centre administrators, monitoring and evaluation officers, data quality managers, data quality assistants, supervisors and enumerators.
