The National Population Commission has revealed that a total of 885,000 people will be recruited for the 2023 Population and Housing Census scheduled for May.
The Commission stated this while giving an update about the exercise in a report, adding that it will last for five days and the total amount needed to carry it out successfully is N869 billion.
According to the report by the Director of Public Affairs, Dr Isiaka Yahaya, N626 billion of the total is needed for the census, and N243 billion is needed for follow-up operations through 2025.
The Commission allocated roughly N77 billion for the training of 885,000 people on the listing of all buildings and families in the country for seven days as part of its crucial requirement for the 2023 Census.
Moreover, N57.5 billion was set aside for the enumeration of all listed individuals during the country’s building, numbering, and household listing processes.
It added that N53.2 billion would be needed to count every person identified during the building numbering and household listing for the primary census procedure.
“If some locations are not covered, we will conduct what is called mop-up. Why they are saying three days because it is going to be Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday but Saturday and Sunday there will also be enumeration and if there are areas not covered, there is provision for mop-up,” he said.
