Recall that the National Electoral Commission (INEC) had on Wednesday postponed the governorship election from March 11 to March 18, 2023. This development indirectly affected the training date for NPC ad hoc staff recruitment training of supervisors and enumerators.
According to information available to us, the training of enumerators and supervisors will now commence on March 31, 2023.
Note: The NPC management has not made any official announcement regarding the postponement of enumerators and supervisors’ training date. But its response on social media indicates that the training date has been shifted till March 31st.
Below is the conversation between NPC management and an applicant.
Applicants: Hello, good morning sir/ma. There’s a rumor circulating social media and misleading us since yesterday after the postponement of the governorship election, that the fixed training date for enumerators and supervisors has been postponed too. Please how true is this?
NPC Management: Good morning, yes supervisors and enumerators training to commence 31 March, 2023. Thank you.
