The National Population Commission (NPC), has revealed that the Federal Government will recruit over one million Nigerians for the conduct of the 2023 census.

The Commissioner representing Ekiti at the NPC, Mr Deji Ajayi, also assured that a reliable technological innovation had been advanced by the NPC for the conduct of the exercise to prevent politicians and interested elites from hijacking or manipulating the process.

Ajayi disclosed that nine local governments selected out of the 16 councils in the state had been delineated into Enumerated Areas to ease the trial census.

Ajayi said, “This is the first time we will be doing a paperless census, everything will be digital to check corruption and bring about accurate data that can help national development.

The government will also use such statistics to plan for our youths, students, and the health needs of Nigerians. They will also know the number of gerontocrats, who should be catered for.

“Assuring that the exercise will be difficult to manipulate, NPC boss said, “Technology is open to manipulation, but NPC has gone a step higher by having an updated technology innovation that can prevent multiple registrations.

“The biometric technology will capture your face and fingerprints and goes to the server and any similar information supplied will be noticed and expunged from the data immediately.

“This time, no person, who is not seen will register as a Nigerian. We have put everything in place to ensure that this exercise will neither be hijacked nor politicised.”
