Ajayi, who spoke in Ado Ekiti at a press conference heralding the trial census to be conducted in Ekiti as a preparatory exercise billed for next year, said, “Census is a massive operation that will engage one million personnel and managing such a huge workforce manually will raise huge logistical and documentation challenges.

“It is in recognition of this fact that the NPC resolved that recruitment for the 2023 census will be done electronically. This trial census will provide an opportunity to test the feasibility of the e-recruitment.”

He listed the nine towns across nine local governments selected and delineated into Enumerated Areas to ease the trial census as Ado, Emure, Iro, Ijero, Ikole, Iworoko, Ise, Ikun, and Omu Ekiti.
