The earlier announced population and housing census scheduled to hold on March 29, 2023, has been postponed to May 2023 after an announcement by the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed.

The minister made that confirmation when he briefed State House correspondents at the end of the meeting of the Federal Executive Council presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday in Abuja.

He said the decision to shift the census was necessitated by the postponement of the gubernatorial and State Assembly elections by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) from March 11 to 18.
He also disclosed that the council approved N2.8 billion for the National Population Commission (NPC) to procure some software for the census.

"There was a memo presented by the National Population Commission, seeking some software to allow them to conduct the census in May this year. I believe because of the rescheduling of the elections, they cannot commence the census as scheduled.

"They sought council's approval for a contract to procure software for the census at the sum of N2.8 billion," he said.
