President Bola Tinubu will personally announce new dates for the national population and housing census that was postponed last April, the Chairman of the National Population Commission, Nasir Kwarra, said on Thursday. Kwarra disclosed this to State House Correspondents after his delegation briefed the President at the Aso Rock Presidential Villa, Abuja.
At the briefing, the NPC submitted its report to the President which he is expected to study and reach an informed decision on what date to fix the nationwide exercise.
According to the Census Boss, the Commission will request more financial provisions because the longer the exercise is delayed, the more its financial requirements expand. He added that the President assured the commission of his support.
