The National Population Commission (NPC) has concluded all necessary groundwork to begin the registration of under five children in Bauchi State.
The exercise, which will be jointly supervised by the NPC, UNICEF and the European Union (EU) is aimed at providing statistical data of children under the age of five in the state for policy formulation and development purposes for the state.
The exercise is expected to last for 10 days and already 3,000 ad-hoc staff from across the 20 local government areas of the state have been trained to conduct the exercise. His Excellency Governor Mohammed A. Abubakar is expected to launch the exercise later this week.
We hereby wish to call on the good people of Bauchi State to give all necessary cooperation to the registration officials for the successful conduct of the exercise so as to get the desired result.
Also, make sure you collect your children’s registration certificate at the end of the registration. All registered under-five children are to be issued with certificates immediately, by the registration officials.
