Written by City Radio on October 20, 2022
Despite the coming 2023 general elections, the Chairman of the National Population Commission, Nasir Isa-Kwarra has disclosed that the population and housing census next year, will hold in April.
He made this known at a three-day national capacity building workshop on 2023 population and housing census for state directors and management staff of the National Orientation Agency, NOA, organised by the National Population Commission in collaboration with NOA, in Abuja.
This was even as he encouraged Nigerians to actively participate in the 2023 general elections and elect leaders who would take the country to the “promised land.”
He said, “2023 is a very important year for Nigeria, we are conducting elections so that we don’t have leadership vacuum and have people elected. I want to encourage Nigerians to participate in this, because it is very important we have great leaders that will lead us to our promised land.
In the same vein, the Director-General National Orientation Agency, Dr. Garba Abari, urged Nigerians to show themselves to be counted during the census.
