The  Federal  Commissioner of the  N P C  stated that the Enumeration Area  Demarcation  is one of the core preparatory  activities for the  Census exercise that constitutes  the foundation on which the entire  Census  architecture  stands. 

He explained that the commission  have  resolved to get it right in the quest  to  deliver to the nation an  Accurate, Reliable, Acceptable and Verifiable  Census  for the Country, pointing out that the  N P C is leaving  no stone unturned in order to  ensure that  the  Enumeration Area Demarcation is carried out meticulously, professionally and scientifically in order to provide the basis for the smooth conduct of the next Census in the  Country.
Dr. Clifford T O Zirra  also  called on all critical  stakeholders to support the  commission for the  realization of the conduct of the next census exercise, and  solicited for the  assistance of the  Local Government Councils and the  Traditional Institutions in the provision of guides and accommodation for the field  staff, stressing that the  Commission has put in place adequate logistics  arrangement  for effective deployment of personnel and  materials in the selected Local Government Areas.
