NPC Gives Update On Census Resumption 6 Days After Tinubu's Swearing-in

Abakaliki, Nigeria – In a recent statement, the National Population Commission (NPC) provided a crucial update on the resumption of the long-awaited 2023 National Census. The NPC revealed that while a new date for the census has yet to be fixed, the responsibility lies with the Federal Government to determine the schedule. The commission emphasized its commitment to safeguarding resources already expended during the preparatory phase to avoid unnecessary duplication of efforts when a new date is announced.

Mr. Darlington Okereke, the NPC’s Federal Commissioner in Ebonyi, made these remarks during a one-day Breakfast Meeting for Media Executives held in Abakaliki. Okereke stressed the necessity of preserving the progress made thus far to ensure a seamless transition once the census resumes.

The 2023 National Census, which holds immense importance for Nigeria’s planning, development, and resource allocation, has faced several delays.
