FG reschedules Census for May
By our Reporter
The 2023 Population and Housing Census earlier scheduled for March 29 has been rescheduled for May 2023.
Alhaji Lai Mohammed, Minister of Information and Culture said this after the weekly Federal Executive Council (FEC), presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari at the State House, Abuja, on Wednesday.
He said the decision to reschedule was necessitated by last week’s decision of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to reschedule the Governorship and Houses of Assembly elections to March 18.
He also said the Council approved N2.8 billion for the National Population Commission (NPC) to procure some software to be used for the conduct of the census.
