President ‘ll decide new date for 2023 Census – NPC

The Federal Commissioner of the National Population Commission (NPC) in Enugu State, Hon. Ejike Eze has hinted that only President Ahmed Bola Tinubu will decide the date for the 2023 National Population and Housing Census.
Eze dropped this hint today, Thursday, at a breakfast meeting with media executives in Enugu on the forthcoming National Population and Housing Census.
The Enugu State NPC boss allayed the fears of the media that the new administration might discontinue the census exercise, expressing confidence that the President, being an accountant and technocrat, appreciates the importance of census information in national planning, especially in policy and programme formulation, budgeting, among others.
Eze said the Commission welcomed the decision of the last administration to postpone the conduct of the census in order to give the new administration the opportunity to make inputs into the process.
