NPC adopts New Adhoc Staff Enumerators and Supervisors Training Schedule as Commision postpones Census to May 2023

The National Population Commission has postponed the 2023 Population and Housing Census Exercise earlier scheduled to commence on 29th March, 2023 to May, 2023.

The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, broke the News on Wednesday when he briefed State House correspondents at the end of Federal Executive Council (FEC) Meeting presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja.

Mr Mohammed disclosed that the shifting of the 2023 Census date was necessitated by the postponement of the Guber and House of Assembly Election from 11th March to 18th March, 2023.

  2. This is to bring to the notice of the chairman national population census and his team that, the NPC officials at local government levels are now demanding and collecting money from applicants for application status approval. It sad that some us that are not willing to pay are still having our statuses pending.
