Tinubu approves national census, set to announce new date

President Tinubu

Plans for the national census in 2023 have been received the president’s approval.

 

 

However, Tinubu is expected to set a new date for the national census of population and housing.

Recall that in April,  the original date for its conduct was postponed indefinitely.

Nasir Kwarra, the NPC’s chairman, revealed this information to State House reporters after his delegation briefed the president in detail at the Aso Rock Presidential Villa in Abuja.


He pointed out that the Commission had the chance to present its report to the President during his visit.


According to Kwarra, the President is expected to study and come to an informed decision of when the exercise would be held nationwide.

He hinted that the Commission may be forced to ask for more funding, pointing out that the longer the exercise is delayed, the more likely it generates financial constraints.

“We briefed him fully on the level of our preparedness, the outcomes that we envisage and I’ll like to say that Mr President has graciously approved to support the Commission in the conduct of census and our preparatory activities, though we’re not stuck at all, but he has given us the courage and the impetus to upscale our preparation.


“So we’ll continue our preparations and we’ll hear from him eventually, the date that the census will take place because we’ve made a submission to him that he will study before getting back to us.

“But as for the assurance of support, he has given that to us and we thank him immensely for this, for also realising the importance of data for the purpose of national planning and development”, he said.
