2016 Census: Nigeria is not prepared – Nat’l Population Commission

The National Population Commission through it’s chairman officially declared that the commission was not prepared to conduct Nigeria’s anticipated national population census scheduled for 2016.
The population boss attributed this failure to unpreparedness, lack of facilities and technicalities; the gaffer announced 2017 as the new date for the exercise.
This disclosure was made during the oversight visit by the Senate Committee on ICT to the commission’s headquarters in Abuja.
The Chairman of the committee Senator Abdulfatai Buhari stated that the legislative arm of government was willing to facilitate activities in sensitive government establishments like the NPC and ICT was key to this. He therefore pledged the committee’s commitment to address debilitating issues that appear to alter the success of the forthcoming census exercise.
