National Population Commission (NPC) yesterday took delivery of  assortments of data capturing equipment and accessories from RLG Adulawo, a local manufacturer in Lagos. {Sic}(in Ilesa, Osun State)

These include Personal Digital Assistants, Power banks, SD cards and Backpacks.

At the handover, Managing Director, Tosin Ilesanmi, said the company is happy to fulfill the contract and justify local content inclusion in delivering the required specifications and quality required.

His words: “Our pride is that the devices have been assembled by Nigerian youths, thereby creating jobs.

“We ensured we delivered on time and to specifications by National Population Commission,”  Ilesanmi  said.

 Ilesanmi  thanked  Federal Government, National Information Technology Development Agency  (NITDA), NPC and Certified Computer Manufactures of Nigeria (CCMON) for following through with Executive Order 003.

Company’s Chair, Razaaque Animashaun, said he hoped their performance would encourage the government to to grow local capacity and reverse capital flight.

“RLG  Adulawo is one of the few local suppliers engaged by the commission to partner it on provision of reliable data capturing equipment. And today, we are honouring our commitment, securing that partnership with this delivery. We thank NPC for the faith in us and other local manufacturers,”  Animashaun added.

A representative of the commission hailed the quality of equipment.

Muhammadu Buhari’s administration  initially set its sight on a census for 2022, later shifting the timeline to last year. However, Buhari indefinitely postponed the census, leaving announcement of new dates to President Bola Tinubu.
