The chairman of National Population Commission (NPC) Chief Eze Duruihuoma has disclosed that the Commission plans to spend about N60billion in building a robust Information and Communication Technology (ICT) infrastructure for the 2018 census and other activities of the commission.

He made the disclosure in his keynote address at the opening of a 3-day ICT retreat organized by NPC for members and management staff of the Commission.

According to him, the amount will go into the procurement of about 600,000 units of Electronic Data Capture Devices (EDCs); setting up of private cloud server and connectivity for streaming and storage of census data at the headquarters and seven zonal data processing centres; procurement of computers and accessories; provision of secured network infrastructures; upgrading of Geo Portal, software development and training.

“Devices alone will not conduct the census as necessary skills are required. It is in this regard that the Commission has placed premium on staff development for optimum output. The seven Data Processing Centres (DPCs) have been renovated while the Geo-portal in the headquarters has been resuscitated with the assistance of UNICEF and will soon be put into maximum use to support the ICT infrastructure of the Commission,” he said.

Chief Duruihuoma further made known that the present Commission has resolved to divorce the human elements from the entire census process; saying in the new configuration, which will rely on Electronic Data Capture Devices, the facial and fingerprint features of every respondent will be captured in a hand-held android powered machine.

“Digital Data Collection (DDC) has become an increasingly popular tool for data collection. No doubt, the use of this cutting edge technology will lead to the generation of indeed Nigerians with accurate and reliable statistics information about the demographic composition of the country’s population.
