He said that they had earlier done two weeks mobilisation by visiting market areas, community leaders and all the stakeholders in the nine LGAs, to create awareness about the exercise.

 

Moro and Edu LGAs

The Director further said that since the commencement of the exercise on July 20, there had been smooth operation, except for Moro and Edu LGAs where there was network issue.

 
He, however, said that the situation was under control and pleaded for more cooperation with the people of the communities to make the exercise successful.

 
Adebayo called on the state government to assist NPC personnel with logistics such as motorcycles, boat, bicycle and security personnel for a smooth exercise and ease their transportation.

 
He said that most of the assistance they  enjoyed came from the communities, as they provided accomodation, transportation, feeding and local securities for the enumerators.

 
The Director said there was need to make more arrangements before the Census proper as there would be more turnout and the provisions on ground would not be enough.

 

Senatorial District

He said that one supervisor was posted to each of the nine LGAs, three LGAs per Senatorial District, consisting of Kwara North, Kwara Central and Kwara South.

 

Ilorin East

“Ninety enumerators were employed to conduct the trials at Barutein, Edu, Moro, Asa, Ilorin East, Ilorin South, Oke-Ero, Oyun and Ekiti LGAs,” he said.

 
Adebayo said there would be an analysis of the whole enumeration from July 25 to July 30 to know the accuracy of the equipment and make adjustments where necessary.
