The training expenses encompass various components such as daily training allowances of no less than N12,000 per facilitator for two weeks, transportation allowances, venue rentals, refreshments, procurement of materials, and logistical arrangements for field operations.

To facilitate the training of supervisors and enumerators, the Commission has printed over one million copies of training manuals tailored for different categories of field staff. These manuals range from 150 to 300 pages. Furthermore, the Commission has procured a multitude of materials required for the fieldwork, including reflective jackets, raincoats, rain boots, biros, chalks, indelible inks, first aid boxes, memo pads, call back cards, and pelican boxes. These materials have been distributed to all state and local government area (LGA) offices of the Commission across Nigeria.

Dr. Isiaka Yahaya expressed deep appreciation to the Nigerian media for their consistent dissemination of information and their professional approach in educating the public about the upcoming census. The positive and informative reporting on the census preparatory activities has significantly contributed to raising awareness and engaging Nigerians in discussions about the 2023 Census, effectively mobilizing them for its successful execution.
