NPC Chairman Hon. Nasir Isa Kwarra
It is great to hear that the National Population Commission is taking steps to ensure that the 2023 Census is conducted accurately and efficiently.
The recent visit of the Digital Chairman, Hon. Nasir Isa Kwarra, to the Functionaries List Finalization Team in Abuja shows the Commission’s commitment to ensuring that the field functionaries list is properly harmonized, and that the payment schedule is developed in a timely manner. It is also important that the field functionaries list is properly harmonized to ensure that all individuals who are responsible for collecting data during the census are properly trained and equipped to do so.
This will help to ensure that the data collected is accurate and reliable. The development of a payment schedule and the design of modalities to update the final trainees list during training is also crucial to ensuring that field functionaries are properly compensated for their work. This will help to ensure that the best individuals are selected for the job and that they are motivated to do their best work.

And it is essential for all stakeholders to work together towards ensure that the census is conducted in a transparent and efficient manner, and that the data collected is used to inform policy decisions that will benefit the Nigerian people.
