Nasarawa State governor, Umaru Tanko Al’Makura, in his vision to usher in all inclusive development has ordered a state-wide enumeration exercise towards assessing infrastructural and developmental needs of citizens of the state for quick implementation.
A statement signed by the Commissioner for Information, Abdul- Hamid Kwara, said the governor directed that an in-depth door to door headcount exercise, spanning the entire state be carried out to provide the administration with vital information on citizens of the state.
The statement added that the exercise will help government in the identification of gaps that need to be bridged to enable it appropriately deploy available resources for the good and benefit of the teeming populace of the state.
According to Kwara, in spite of government best efforts, many citizens and residents have continued to lament the lack of basic social amenities in parts of the state.
“The objective is to obtain and secure demographic data that will guide the administration in the provision of social amenities, such as housing, roads and rural infrastructure including water and electricity that are lacking in some parts of the state,” he said.
The statement said in the course of the exercise, enumerators would be visiting homes and offices across the state to administer questionnaires to residents and workers on their needs.
“The Nasarawa State Government is therefore using this medium to call on all residents of the state, to cooperate with the enumerators and respond appropriately in order to ensure that the objectives of the exercise are achieved.
“In addition, the state government wishes to state unequivocally that this exercise is not just for the indigenes of Nasarawa State, but for non-indigenes and residents.
“In light of the above, the government expects the peaceful and conducive atmosphere now prevailing in the state to continue in the course of the conduct of the exercise which would ultimately be for the benefit of the citizenry.
“It is on account of this and in pursuit of his vision of inclusive governance that the Al-Makura administration has put in motion a
process of engagement with residents through the enumeration exercises,” the statement stated.
