Census will solve many problems in Nigeria, says NPC Commissioner, Durunguwa

Dr. Abdulmalik Durunguwa, the Federal Commissioner for the National Population Commission, expressed hope that the country's various problems will be solved by the census in 2023.

Speaking to reporters in Abuja on Friday, he promised that after the census was properly completed, the majority of the difficulties the nation was facing would be resolved. He added that the process will show the government how to move forward in resolving the challenges.

He stated that "the census will provide the necessary data for the government and its partners to plan how to address the needs of the people and how to put the nation on the path to sustainable development."

He continued by emphasizing that the purpose of the data is to address people's concerns and that it is necessary to know more about where one lives than just their town or state.

He emphasized that in order for the nation to understand the makeup and dynamics of its population, everyone should be tallied, no matter where they are.

In order for the government to know who needs support and how to plan, he urged all Nigerians to make sure they are counted.

After the census, the government would, in his opinion, have a functional document that would be used to address distinctive issues impacting people living in different sections of the country.
