The National Population Commission (NPC) in Kogi has opened the portal for the recruitment of ad hoc staff for the 2023 national Census.

The federal commissioner in charge of Kogi, Jimoh Isah, said this at a news conference in Lokoja on Saturday.

Mr Isah urged the applicants to diligently and faithfully fill out the online form and requirements genuinely.

He assured that the recruitment exercise would be done transparently with international best practices, devoid of political and human manipulation toward achieving a hitch-free exercise.

Mr Isah said successful applicants would be deployed to their local government areas to enhance thorough coverage since they were already conversant with their localities.

The commissioner appealed for maximum cooperation from the people given the high priority being accorded the exercise by the government at all levels.

He advised prospective applicants to be mindful of the information they supply, noting that the system is capable of identifying wrong information input.

He noted that all variables had been considered and addressed to achieve the set goals.

Mr Isah said the commission was partnering with security agencies and all relevant stakeholders to ensure the security of its officials as well as access to some difficult terrains.

Earlier, the state director of NPC, Abiodun Ojo, said the commission was putting in all available resources to make the exercise a success.

Mr Ojo called for an effective partnership with the media for a successful exercise.

He said that all commission staff would be available to assist prospective applicants as ad hoc staff and those who want verification on the forthcoming census.
