While speaking on the workshop’s purpose, Bello said it was meant to teach journalists about census processes and abbreviations the Commission uses.

He said: “It is to tell journalists our obstacles so that when they are reporting, they will report us well.”

Bello, who represented the Federal Commissioner, Dr. Eyitayo Oyetunji, said the Commission would conduct the best and first digital census in the country.

Various officers of the NPC, who spoke at the training, including Akin Oyetunde, Peter Ojelakin, Alhaji Towobola and others, said the Commission would deliver the first of its kind digital population and housing census in the country.

They said with introduction of modern technology, the 2023 census would be reliable, credible verifiable and usable.
