What to do if your status is stuck at PENDING

We recommend attending the NPC Training in your Local Government Area of application if you are interested in participating in the upcoming census, even if your status is pending. There’s a possibility that you may be considered for the training and obtain a replacement opportunity for approved applicants who fail to attend the training.

Attending the training while waiting for the status to change boosts your chance of getting approved eventually. Moreso, the training gives you all the knowledge the Commission may have presumed that you lacked before.

Additionally, it is advisable to always keep tabs on every news on NPC 2023 census program. For instance, if you type “NPC Recruitment 2023” into your search bar, you are likely to find updated news on your currency situation like this one.
