However, Mr president said he also noted that the Commission was on the verge of conducting the final training for the Census before being caught up with the transition programme for a new government and funding challenges, necessitating the postponement of the exercise by the immediate-past President.
In Mr president remarks after receiving a briefing from the NPC Chairman, President Tinubu expressed concern over the delay in conducting another census in the country since the last exercise done in 2006.
He urged the NPC to view this delay as an opportunity to cash in on the advantages of the current electronic and digital age.
The President said ‘I have listened to you and we will support you. The accuracy and integrity of your data are important to Nigerians and our national economic development programmes. ‘We will support you but you must be prudent and determined to make a name for yourself. Good luck.”
