The National Population Commission (NPC) has launched its situation room as part of preparations for the conduct of the 2023 Population and Housing Census.
Chairman of NPC, Nasir Isa Kwarra, who officially launched the Situation Room at the headquarters of the Commission in Abuja on Wednesday, said it would afford the Commission the opportunity to interact and educate the Nigerian populace seeking information concerning the 2023 census, receive feedback and correct misconceptions regarding the census methodology, processes and procedures.
Kwarra reiterated the irrevocable commitment of the Commission to conduct a digital census in 2023 that would be credible, reliable, and acceptable to Nigerians.
He noted that President Muhammadu Buhari and the Council of State had already approved the conduct of the Population and Housing Census slated for April 2023, adding that the Commission would conduct a trial census in June 2022.
As part of measures to create a conducive working environment for the Staff of the Commission, Kwarra revealed that the permanent site of the headquarters of NPC in Abuja would be completed in the next six months.
