The National Population Commission (NPC) has recruited over 30,000 enumerators for the 2023 population and housing and census in Bauchi State.
This was disclosed by the Public Affairs Department officer of the Commission, Aliyu Galoji, during an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Bauchi.
Galoji further stated that the Commission has also recruited over 2,000 facilitators and special workforce, who had been trained and exposed to the prerequisite knowledge of census exercise.
He said his Commission is ready towards ensuring reliable, accurate and credible census in Bauchi State, adding that personnel recruitment exercise has reached 98 percent in the state.
“Going by the instruction from our headquarters, we are going to start training for the enumerators by March 31, but due to the shift in the date of the state election, we are expecting changes in the date too.
“Presently, we trained 20 Training Managers who are the controllers of the local government areas. They are selected from each of the 20 LGAs in the state.
“There is also another training for Planning Officers, that is the Directors of Planning in the LGAs. We have one representative each from the 20 LGAs,” he said.
