NPC Adhoc Staff State Level Training Final Exam Questions for Specialised WorkForce and Facilitators

In preparation for the 2023 Population and Housing Census Exercise, the National Population Commission had on Sunday concluded the State Level Training organised for the Specialised WorkForce and Facilitators.

An NPC National Final Exam was taken across the States of the Federation to evaluate the Trainees' understanding of Population and Housing Census concepts and Technology therein.

Myinfoclock Daily Info Update had earlier published a Full Compilation of NPC Quiz and NPC Final Exam Questions and Answers which NPC Adhoc Staff Applicants take during Self-Learning and after Virtual Class Room Training respectively.

During the Census, you came across a compound within your EA of assignment that is built and owned by Alhaji Usman Kolapo as his personal property. The security man in the compound called Yusuf Baba sleeps in the gate- house and the gate-house is given number 21, the next building number 22 is given to the main building being occupied by Alhaji Usman himself and the last of his three wives called Alhaja Sefiat Anike. The third building in the compound, numbered 23, is a boys’ quarters currently being occupied entirely by Abdul-Maliki Usman who is the son of the junior brother to Alhaji Usman. Abdul-Maliki Usman lives in this boys’ quarters with his wife and one son. The fourth building in the compound (numbered 24) is occupied by the first wife of Alhaji Usman with her grandchildren and a house help called Modupeola.  The fifth building (numbered 25) is a 2-bedroom house rented by Mr. Thomas Wada who lives in it with his family and pays the rental fees to Alhaji Usman on an annual basis. There is another structure (sixth) in the compound that was not numbered because it is a mere generator house and not used for dwelling. The seventh Building (numbered 26) in the compound is a 2-bedroom boys’ quarters that was formally being occupied by Alhaji Usman’s son , Akintayo , who has parked out of the building after marriage and currently the building is under lock without any occupant as at the time of the Census.

Note, Modupeola (who is not related to the Alhaji Usman by blood nor marriage) lives in the compound with him and does prepare the food the family members eat  with the two wives of Alhaji Usman.  Modupeola shares in the eating on a daily basis. The second wife of Alhaji Usman by name Maryam lives in another building about one kilometer away from the compound where Alhaji Usman lives.

Maryam cooks on a regular basis from her dwelling and brings to Alhaji Usman to eat.   The Abdul-Maliki’s do not have a separate cooking arrangement except what is prepared by Modupeola and Alhaji Usman wives. The Wada’s cook separately at their apartment and have no eating arrangement with others living in the compound. Yusuf Baba, the security man sleeps in the gate-house and cooks separately at his gate-house.
