The National Population Commission (NPC) has prevented hackers from gain access to its recruitment portal for the 2023 census.
This was made known to the public by the NPC Commissioner for Anambra, Chidi Ezeoke, at a news conference in Awka.
According to him, NPC would recruit competent personnel from selected communities across Nigeria, to ensure an accurate and reliable census next year.
“If hackers were not able to succeed in this, we want to ensure and assure that it will be difficult for them to hack during the 2023 census.
“I’m almost certain that the attempt, to a large extent, was foiled.
“When you are trying out something new, people will try to bypass your efforts”, NAN quoted him saying.
