The visit discussed ways the NCS could collaborate with the NPC to conduct the first digital Population and Housing Census in Nigeria.

In his remarks, Prof. Sodiya commended the NPC for its efforts in planning and preparing for the census, and expressed the NCS’s readiness to support the Commission in any way possible. He said that the NCS had a wealth of experience and expertise in information communication technology and would be willing to share this expertise with the NPC to ensure the success of the census.

Hon. Kwarra expressed his appreciation for the NCS’s support and said that the Commission would be working closely with the NCS to ensure that the census is conducted promptly and efficiently. He said that the census would be a critical tool for planning and development in Nigeria and that it was important that it be conducted accurately and fairly.

The two organizations agreed to work together to develop a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that would formalize their collaboration on the census. The MoU is expected to be signed in the coming weeks.
