Census: National Population Commission Set Measures To Curb Malpractices

Written by on March 28, 2023

The National Population Commission has said it had put up measures to guard against all forms of malpractices ahead of the forthcoming population and housing census.

The commission also stressed that citizens living away from their states of origin do not need to travel to home for the purpose of the exercise, adding that people would be enumerated at their places of residence.

The spokesperson for the commission, Isiaka Yahaya, in an interview with journalists on Monday said the commission has not trained its enumerator to count people who are not yet born, noting that the commission has a system in place to guard against all the malpractices that have been envisaged.

Yahaya further stated that people can only be counted in their houses, saying that is to discourage people from moving from one place to another after being counted.
