The National Population Commission (NPC) has recently announced the suspension of the training exercise for the 2023 Census enumerators and supervisors. The postponement has caused concern among stakeholders and the general public, as the NPC has not yet released any statement revealing the new training date.
While some reports suggest that the NPC officials suspended the training due to the fact that many people will not perform well during Ramadan fasting, others see the suspension as a result of the 2023 election rerun that will hold on 15 April, 2023.
The training exercise is critical to the success of the 2023 census, which is aimed at providing accurate demographic data for policy-making, development planning, and resource allocation in Nigeria. The NPC has emphasized the need for adequate training of enumerators and supervisors to ensure that the census is conducted efficiently and effectively.
However, the decision to suspend the training exercise has raised concerns about the NPC’s preparedness for the 2023 census. Some stakeholders fear that the postponement may cause delays in the census process and may affect the accuracy of the data collected.
In response to these concerns, the NPC has assured Nigerians that the postponement is only temporary, and the training exercise will resume after the Sallah break. The commission has also reiterated its commitment to conducting a credible and accurate census in 2023.
