Real Reasons Census Was Postponed – NPC

The National Population Commission (NPC) says the 2023 Population and Housing Census was postponed due to the government’s transition programme and the post-election mood in the country.

Inuwa Jalingo, the 2023 Census manager and director, National Population Commission (NPC), said this at a news conference in Abuja on Sunday, as he urged Nigerians to dismiss misconceptions that the census was postponed due to lack of funding and preparation.

Mr Jalingo, who asserted the preparedness of the commission for the 2023 census, said the NPC had prepared the ground for the first-ever digital census in Nigeria.

He said the commission had achieved topmost success in all ramifications in terms of the preparation.

“We achieved the international standard for a digital census.

“About 450,000 digital gadgets were procured and distributed to all the local governments,” he said.

The NPC had postponed the Population and Housing Census earlier scheduled from 3 May to 7 May indefinitely.
