Nasir Kwarra, executive chairman of the National Population commission (NPC), on Friday in Abuja inaugurated the census dashboard and mobile device management location.

At the launching, Mr Kwara said the NPC would not leave any stone unturned in its bid to conduct a credible national census in 2023.

“As part of our collective resolve in the commission to conduct a fully digitalised census in Nigeria, the commission is leaving no stone unturned to achieve this set objective.

“It is in furtherance of this that we are today witnessing the official launch of the Census Dashboard and Mobile Device Management System,” he said.

The dashboard is a monitoring instrument to enhance the quality of data collected during the census across the country.

Mr Kwarra, represented by Gloria Izonfuo, the federal commissioner, Bayelsa, said the dashboard launch demonstrated the commission’s preparedness to conduct a digital and reliable census.

According to him, NPC, the National Bureau of Statistics, and external users could use the data from the dashboard to identify and resolve potential performance problems before they occur during the household and population enumeration process.

Mr Kwarra described the dashboard as an information management tool for monitoring, analysing and producing a visual display of the selected Key Performance Indicators (KPIs).

The executive chairman also commended United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), and United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA), for their tremendous support to the commission.

Also, Ulla Mueller, country representative, UNFPA, reiterated the United Nations’ commitment to supporting the commission to deliver on its mandates.
