NPC Latest News Today Saturday 1 April 2023 | Census Holiday

There won’t be a public holiday during the upcoming census, which is set to take place between May 3 and 7, 2023, according to the National Population Commission.

The committee urged citizens to make themselves available and added that everyone living in the nation, including foreigners, will be tallied.

The exercise will be the first since the 2006 census, according to Saturday PUNCH. The exercise would be conducted digitally, as promised by the commission.

NPC Latest News Today -The NPC spokesperson, Isiaka Yahaya, said in a conversation with our correspondent on Friday that there wouldn’t be a public holiday because people can move around more freely on those days, but there might be restrictions on movement based on prior experiences. I am unable to confirm that at this time. On that, the administration will issue a definitive statement.

“As long as foreigners are present in Nigeria, they will be counted. The whole population of Nigeria’s land area will be counted. According to the dictionary, a census is a count of every person. Only citizens was not mentioned. So, everyone who lived in the nation throughout the time of the census will be counted.

“A part of the application will inquire whether or not you are a foreigner and what country you are from. It is not separate because it is part of the data that will be gathered.

He responded, “There is a rumor that persons who refuse to be counted would be sanctioned,” when asked to clarify whether anyone who refuses to present themselves for the exercise will be sanctioned. What I know is that we have urged every Nigerian to be available for the exercise because it will benefit the country. There are offenses that we don’t want to emphasize, yet we lack the authority and resources to imprison anyone.

Speaking while visiting the Nigeria Union of Journalists’ Plateau Chapter in Jos on Friday, Dame emphasized the significance of the exercise for planning and national development and said the commission would use technology to make sure that the exercise went off without a hitch.

He stated, “The upcoming census will be a bit unusual since we have made plans for improvement over the previous ones. We are therefore appealing all Nigerians to collaborate with the staff who would perform the exercise. In order to reduce the possibility of manipulation and make technology credible, reliable, and acceptable to Nigerians, we will use it.

Because we will take the necessary steps to make the census credible and acceptable, manipulating the results will be exceedingly difficult.

In order to avoid problems during the general elections, the commission was given the responsibility by NUJ’s state chairman, Mr. Paul Jatau, to provide sufficient training for its employees.
