This is through the State Fiscal, Transparency, Accountability and Sustainability (SFTAS) Programme.
This is contained in a release by Mr Ted Inyang, State Project Manager, World Bank SFTAS Programme.
Inyang said that the exercise was meant to government plan better for the economy and security of the state.
According to him, the enumeration will also ensure better physical and town planning as well as guide government in infrastructural development.
Inyang added that the SFTAS programme is a collaboration between the Federal Government and the World Bank.
He explained that it was designed to strengthen Fiscal Transparency, Accountability and Sustainability in Nigerian states.
It is also a way of improving their revenue base, increasing efficiency in public expenditure and reducing debt overhang.
