The enumerators are expected to gather information from businesses across the state to be used for national development.

The workshop was declared open by the Commissioner of Budget and Economic Planning, Dr Abbas Sani Kalgo, at the State Secretariat, Kebbi State.

The Commissioner, who was represented by the Director, Planning and Statistics, Abubakar Ahmad Jega said, “statistics, if well promoted, remains an important ingredient for national planning and development.”
