He also disclosed that the Council approved the sum of N2.8 billion for the National Population Commission (NPC) to procure some softwares to be used for the conduct of the census.

He said, “There was a memo presented by the National Population Commission, seeking for some softwares to allow them 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.”
