President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the release of the sum of N10 billion to the National Population Commission (NPC).
The fund is to enable the NPC to continue the Enumeration Area Demarcation (EAD) exercise in the remaining 546 Local Government Areas of the country, Naija News understands.
Approval was also granted by the President for the inclusion of an additional N4.5 billion in the 2021 Budget for completion of the exercise as part of the preparations for the next census.
This was disclosed on Monday in Abuja at the NPC headquarters by the Commission’s Acting Chairman, Dr. Eyitayo Oyetunji while briefing journalists on the release of the funds and the update on the EAD exercise.
