A nationwide census registration drive is underway whereby over two thousand people will be appointed to do an official count of our population.
Census Team Leader, Filomena Brown says thousands of people turned up for the drive in Vunimono Hall, Nausori yesterday
“Surprisingly from 6:30am there were people sitting outside and by 9am, we had given out a thousand and sixty registration forms. We have those who do not have qualifications but that come in and can read and that can write and that can count. If they go through the process and score good marks the chances they can recruited.”
She says the registration process has attracted a lot of people who are in need of employment and they will move to the Western, Northern and Eastern divisions later this week.
Brown says they are looking at recruiting two thousand one hundred and fifty six enumerators and six hundred and fifty supervisors with three hundred reserves during the drive.
