The National Population Commission has cautioned prospective ad-hoc staff for the 2023 population and housing census to be circumspect and not fall, victim of impostors claiming to be its personnel.
The Ondo State Director of the commission, Mr. Yemi Falusi,gave the warning in a statement issued on Tuesday in Akure.
Falusi said that approval to work as ad-hoc staff for the commission in the coming population and housing census was completely free and based on merit.
The director therefore urged those who had applied for appointments as ad hoc staff to be careful so as not to be swindled of their hard-earned money.
He also advised those who might have fallen victim of these fraudsters and have lost varying amounts of money to report to law enforcement agents for arrest and prosecution of those complicit in the offence.
Falusi said the sensitisation and warnings were necessitated because the commission had been inundated with reports of the activities of these unscrupulous elements.
