The National Population Commission (NPC) in Nigeria has denied reports that their server was hacked, which caused the postponement of training for the 2023 Population and Housing Census.
The NPC stated that the server is intact and has implemented comprehensive security measures to safeguard its systems from potential security threats.
The Commission also clarified that the recent mission of its Chairman to the United Nations was to attend the annual event on Population and Development, which is in line with the mandate of the NPC as the coordinating agency on population matters in Nigeria.
The NPC urges the public to disregard false information and support the Commission to ensure a secure and successful 2023 Census exercise.
Also note that the plan for the 2023 census can only be possible if they succeed in raising the funds needed.
