The Head of Census Methodology at the Ghana Statistical Service (GSS), Mr Owusu Kagya has encouraged all Ghanaians who have not been enumerated to call the Service in order to be counted.
He observed that people still have the notion that the census is over, stating clearly that the exercise is still ongoing.
The Ghana Statistical Service (GSS) extended the deadline for the 2021 Population and Housing Census to Sunday, July 18.
This was to allow enumerators complete work in the outstanding enumeration areas.
The exercise, which started on Monday, June 28, was expected to end today, July 11, 2021, in all sixteen (16) regions of the country.
Speaking on Atinka TV’s morning show, Ghana Nie with Co Host Abena Dufie Adjepong, Mr Owusu Kagya encouraged those who have not been enumerated to call them on toll free number 0800426426/0591476893 or visit their offices in their offices.
He also urged them to send the GSS message on WhatsApp line, 0591476884.
Mr Owusu Kagya said even after the one week, if they are not able to cover all Ghanaians, they may extend the deadline.
Listing their challenges, he said some people had refused to be enumerated, adding that some do not come out at all.
He therefore urged all to ensure they are enumerated.
