The National Population Commission (NPC) says it has launched a call centre for the 2023 population and housing census.
Chairman of the commission, Nasir Kwarra, said NPC had intensified preparatory activities for the successful conduct of the first digital census in Nigeria.
“The launch of this integrated call centre for the 2023 census is yet another major step toward making the head count a resounding success. It also underscores our commitment toward providing demographic data for national planning,” he said.
The chairman stressed the need for constant interaction between the commission and Nigerians to obtain information and feedback on the census process.
According to him, the call centre is equipped with modern information and communication technology facilities for video conferencing, emails and telephony to facilitate effective communication for the census.
“This call centre will serve as an information hub for a seamless interface between NPC and the public before, during and after the census exercise,” added Mr Kwarra. “Enquiries from the public to the commission about the census process, on-field activities and other census frequently asked questions are expected to be responded to by trained personnel.”
