2023 Census, Critical To Addressing Nigeria’s Problems – NPC

The Federal Commissioner, National Population Commission, Dr Abdulmalik Durunguwa, has assured Nigerians that the 2023 Census will address the myriad of problems bedevilling the country.

Durunguwa, representing Kaduna State at the commission, stated this during a chat with members of the Southern Kaduna Journalists Forum in Abuja on Friday.

According to him, the census will provide the needed data for the government and its partners to plan how to respond to people’s needs and how to set the country on the path to sustainable development.

“The data that is required is more about where you reside and not your village or state because the essence of the data is to solve people’s problems wherever you are.

“The country needs to know the composition and the dynamics of its population and as such, people should be counted wherever they are.”

He called on every Nigerian to stay where they are to be counted so that the government would know about the people to help the government to plan.
