FG Postpones 2023 Population Census To May - A2satsblog

The minister of information and culture, Lai Mohammed disclosed this Wednesday at the end of the federal executive council (FEC) meeting presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja.

The population census was earlier scheduled for March 29, but the exercise will now hold in May.

He also said that the council approved the sum of N2.8 billion for the National Population Commission (NPC) to procure software to be used for the conduct of the census.

“There was a memo presented by the National Population Commission, seeking some software to allow them to conduct the census in May this year. I believe because of the rescheduling of the elections, they cannot commence the census as scheduled,” the minister said.

“They sought Council’s approval for a contract to procure software for the census at the sum of N2.8 billion.”
