Census: We’ll Soon Deploy Server For The Exercise – NPC

The National Population Commission has said its Server is intact and ready to be deployed for the upcoming 2023 Population and Housing Census exercise.

This was contained in a statement signed by the Commission’s spokesperson, Isiaka Yahaya, on Monday.

The NPC’s assurance came following a viral video where its staff in Niger State, Sanusi Maigida, said the NPC server was hacked which led to the postponement of the Local Government Areas-level training of the Supervisors and Enumerators for the census.

Yahaya, in the statement, however, said the information was false, adding that Maigida was facing a disciplinary action for such misinformation.

He said, “The attention of the National Population Commission has been drawn to misleading and false information made by an uninformed staff of the Commission and Comptroller of the Chanchaga LGA in Niger State, Sanusi Maigida, on the hacking of the NPC server, citing this development as the reason for the postponement of the LGA-level training of the Supervisors and Enumerators for the 2023 Population and Housing Census.

“The statement made by Mr. Sanusi Maigida is totally false and does not represent the true position of things as regards the Commission’s server and the reason for the postponement of the LGA-level training of the functionaries. As a staff in the LGA office of the NPC, Mr. Maigida has limited knowledge about the NPC server or its workability.
“He acted without directive and authorisation from the Commission’s headquarters in Abuja and is currently facing disciplinary action for such embarrassing misinformation.
