Remarks by the Statistician General of the Federation, Dr Yemi Kale at the Signing Ceremony of a MoU between the National Bureau of Statistics and the National Social Safety Net Coordinating Office for the Conduct of the National Living Standard Survey
Let me start by saying that, I am delighted that you all made it here today to this very important event, the signing ceremony of the MoU between the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) and the National Social Safety Net Coordinating Office (NASSCO) for the Conduct of the National Living Standard Survey.
This brief ceremony today, which is also a sensitisation forum for the Survey, is the culmination of over 2 years of hard work put in by the staff of the NBS, NASSCO and the World Bank, and I am personally very delighted that we can finally kickstart this long overdue exercise.
So please permit me at this point to applaud the effort and commitment of the staff of these three organisations, it has indeed been a long struggle to get to this point, and I am very pleased that we finally are here to commission this exercise.
