The National Population Commission (NPC) has fixed the national population and housing census for March 29 to April 2, 2023.


Chairman of the National Population Commission, Nasir Kwarra made the announcement shortly after meeting President Muhammadu Buhari at the state house in Abuja.

“By March 29 to April 2, our staff will be in the field enumerating people.”
