The Kadjebi Census Implementation Committee (DCIC) members in the Oti Region has for the fifth time had a preparatory meeting with the District Census Officer and the District Field Supervisor.
This was to strategise on the forthcoming census and appraise themselves with the ongoing training of enumerators for data collection.
Mr. Alhassan Sulemana, the DCIC Chairman called on members to co-operate to have credible, accurate and reliable data for the District.
He said there was the need for team work, commitment and dedication to achieve desired results and to achieve results, letters were dispatched to faith-based organisations and information centres to help disseminate information on the Census.
Mr. Sulemana added that they also planned to visit the eight Paramount Chiefs in the District on Thursday, June 10, 2021 to brief them on the exercise and seek their support for successful exercise.
Mr. Gibril Fuseini, the District Census Officer applauded the committee members for being proactive and prudence in handling issues relating to the Census in the District.
He said the skillfulness and dexterity at which the Committee was working could not be underestimated and appealed to them to help garner accurate, factual and reliable data for development of the country.
Mr. George Bekoe, the District Field Supervisor said 201 potential enumerators were currently undergoing training to help collect data for the Kadjebi District.
He said their recruitment was purely done by the Ghana Statistical Service (GSS) and that final selection for the main job would still be carried out by the GSS, so the stakeholders should bear with them during those hard times.
He also complained about the quantity and quality of food served to them and called for improvement.
Members of the Committee called on the GSS to provide funds for NCCE and ISD to help disseminate information on the exercise since the populace knew little on the 2021 PHC exercise.
