President Bola Tinubu has approved the continuation of arrangements for the 2023 national census.
Tinubu, on the other hand, is expected to set a new date for the national population and housing census.

Remember that the original date designated for its execution was postponed indefinitely in April of this year.

Nasir Kwarra, Chairman of the National Population Commission, NPC, made this remark to State House Correspondents after his delegation briefed the President at the Aso Rock Presidential Villa in Abuja.

He stated that the Commission’s visit to the President provided a chance for the Commission to present its findings to the President.

According to Kwarra, the President is required to conduct research and make an informed choice about when the exercise will take place nationwide.

He intimated that the Commission might be forced to seek additional financing, pointing out that the longer the exercise is postponed, the more probable budgetary limitations will arise.

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

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

“However, he has assured us of his support, for which we are enormously grateful, as well as realizing the importance of data for the purpose of national planning and development,”

He stated.
