Kwarra said only two local government councils in Borno are yet to be demarcated. He attributed the delay to insecurity in the region, but promised that it will be done soon.

He revealed that the Commission has also conducted the first and the second census pre-test exercises to test the census instruments in preparation for the census next year. He said the trial census will be conducted in June this year.

He said: “I am pleased to inform you all that the outcome of the preparatory activities of the 2023 Population and Housing census has been reassuring. The Commission has successfully demarcated 772 LGAs in all the States of the federation and the FCT, the remaining two LGAs of Abadam (Borno State) and Birnin Gwari (Kaduna State) which has not been demarcated as a result of security challenge will be demarcated very soon.

“The Commission has also conducted the first and the second census pre-test exercises to test the census instruments in preparation for the census. The trial census will be conducted in June this year.

“The Commission is on course in its mission of delivering an accurate census to Nigerians and a strategic partnership with the media will form the tripod upon which the census architecture will stand to reach-out to the Nigerian people.
