The 2023 national population and housing census will hold from March 29 to April 2, 2023.
Nasir Kwarra, the Chairman of National Population Commission, announced this in Abuja on Friday after an audience with the President Muhammadu Buhari.
“By March 29 to April 2, our staff will be in the field enumerating people,” said Kwarra.
According to him, the tools to be deployed will be able to code buildings and landmass, detailing information such as location and landscapes, among others.
This, he said, would ensure a credible exercise.
Kwarra said that foreigners in the country would also be counted.
