Census: NPC inaugurates committees for security, logistics, publicity
The National Population Commission, NPC, on Friday, inaugurated the Delta Census 2023 Security/Logistics and Publicity/Advocacy committees.
The Federal Commissioner of NPC representing Delta, Chief Richard Odibo, who inaugurated the committees in Asaba, said that the event became necessary due to the scope of the census.
He said it would involve the counting of every person resident in the country.
He added that the security challenges in the country and the need to create awareness also necessitated the inauguration of these committees.
He explained that the Security/Logistics Committee would help to facilitate the security of training facilities as well as transportation and security of census personnel and materials.
“The Security/Logistics Committee would also help in maintaining public peace and order around census activities and personnel.
“The committee will also help in securing National Population Commission offices, vehicles and equipment, among others.
“The Publicity/Advocacy Committee will help in carrying out public enlightenment and education as well as solicit support for the 2023 census, its process and procedures. It will also undertake advocacy visits as well as strategic engagements with key stakeholders at the state and local government levels,” he said.
