Abuja, Nigeria, June 22, 2022 -- The National Population Commission (NPC) has launched an integrated call center that will serve as the information hub for a seamless interface between the commission and members of the public before, during and after the census exercise.
Executive Chairman of the Commission, Hon. Nasir Isa Kwara, during the launching ceremony Tuesday in Abuja, with the theme:"2023 Population and Housing Census: You Count, Be Counted" stated that the center is an intensified preparatory activities for the successful conduct of the first digital census in Nigeria.
According to him, population census is a people oriented activity that seeks to capture the demographic characteristics of the populace across the length and breadth of the country.
He said It was therefore imperative to put in place a platform for constant interaction between the Commission and the people through which information can be obtained, clarified and feedback received on the census process.
"The inauguration of the Call Center ahead of the actual enumeration of persons in April 2023 is therefore a clear indication of the commitment of the Commission to conduct a people oriented 2023 Population and Housing Census.
"The launch of this integrated call center for the 2023 Census is yet another major step towards making the 2023 Census a resounding success and underscores our commitment of providing demographic data for national planning," he said.
"The Call Center is equipped with modern Information and Communication technology facilities for video conferencing, emails and telephony to facilitate effective communication for the success of the 2023 Population and Housing Census.
"This call center will serve as the information hub for seamless interface between the Commission and members of the public before, during and after the Census exercise. Enquiries from members of the public to the Commission about the census process, on the field activities and other census frequently asked questions are expected to be responded to by trained personnel," he added.
The Chairman therefore urged the operators of the call center to demonstrate commitment, hardwork and zeal in handling this sensitive assignment, adding that as census functionaries handling this critical task of communicating with Nigerians, much is required of them.
"You must be committed, focused, polite and courteous in your dealings with the general public and above all, you must bring your patriotic zeal to bear on the work at hand as what you are going to do, should be seen as service to your fatherland," he stressed.
In her remarks, Resident Representative of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) Ulla Elisabeth Mueller, said the NPC is re-writing the history of census-taking in Nigeria, adding that a Call Center, embedded in situation room, is helpdesk, and will ensure communication of crucial information relating to Census implementation among and between census managers or officials, field functionaries and the public.
"I applaud the National Population Commission for adding yet another innovation to the Census process. If well implemented, a Call Center will significantly change the complexion of this Census implementation in favourble ways and is clearly another first in the scheme of Nigeria Census taking history," she said.
Giving an overview of the Digital Census and Call Centre, the Census Manager, Inuwa Bakari Jalingo, explained that the call center will attend to any questions from Nigerians regarding the census and get immediate response, adding that an integrated dashboard is in place to monitor all activities in the center to ensure efficiency.
Highpoint of the ceremony was the official unveiling of the centre by the Executive Chairman, who also revealed and tested the numbers call numbers 07000Census and 07000236787 to the general public viewing
