The Federal Government has shifted this year’s Population and Housing Census, earlier scheduled for March 29 to May. Information and Culture Minister Lai Mohammed said the census was rescheduled following the postponement of the governorship and Houses of Assembly elections by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) from March 11 to March 18.
Mohammed announced the new date while addressing State House correspondents after a Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.
The minister also said the council approved N2.8 billion for the National Population Commission (NPC) to buy essential software for the conduct of the headcount.
