The President of the Federal republic of Nigeria, Mohammadu Buhari has put pen to paper for the release of ₦10 billion to the National Population Commission (NPC) for continuation of the Enumeration Area Demarcation (EAD) in the remaining 546 Local Government Area of the country.
A national census requires a vast amount of preparatory work. To that effect Pres. Buhari approved additional ₦4.5billion to be added to the 2021 fiscal budget for completion of the exercise as part of the preparatory work for the next census.
Dr. Eyitayo Oyetunji, acting NPC chairman, made these known in Abuja while briefing newsmen on the release of the funds and the update on the EAD at the NPC headquarters.
