Chief Census Officer, Professor Samuel Kobina Annim, provided a briefing on the census and highlighted the innovations and key activities before discussing the key areas of support required from the GNFS which include ensuring fire safety in census storage facilities across country and blowing of sirens on Census Night to make the date memorable. Mr. Blankson thanked the delegation for the visit and assured them of the support of the GNFS for the census in the requested areas and additionally agreed to provide fire safety training for census officials.
