Recall that the NPC had in a Press Statement signed by its Director of Public Affairs, Isiaka Yahaya, disclosed that the commission has made preparations to train and deploy 786,741 Adhoc Staff across the 36 States plus FCT for the 2023 Census Exercise.

Distributing the number of the Adhoc Staff according to Duties and Functions, Dr Yahaya stated that 623,797 Enumerators, 125,944 Supervisors, 24,001 Data Quality Assistants, 12,000 Field Cordinators, 1,000 Data Quality Managers, 1,639 Training Center Adminstrators, and 59,000 LGA Facilitators constitute the 786,741 NPC Adhoc Staff for 2023 Census.

The Commission noted that while a number of 786,741 Adhoc Staff were needed for the 2023 Census, over two million Candidates applied.

The NPC hinted that "not everyone who applied should be selected", hence applicants who were not selected will have their Application Status PENDING.

Giving further explanation on Pending Application Status, the NPC stated that the Enumerators and Supervisors were recruited based on Quotas available in each State, LGA and Ward.

"We have required number of ad-hoc personnel to be recruited for the Census Exercise. 

"The Approval of application is subject to vacancies in an Applicant's State/LGA/Ward of Assignment.

"So, Pending Status is not a problem rather it means that your Application has not been Approved", the NPC stated.

The NPC however noted that an Applicant whose Application Status is PENDING can still be selected, if the State the Applicant applied to work in has not concluded Recruitment.
