Tinubu yet to fix census date, disregard recruitment advert, NPC tells Nigerians

President Bola Tinubu has not fixed a date for the conduct of the upcoming Population and Housing Census in Nigeria, according to the National Population Commission (NPC).

A Facebook page named “2023 Census ADHOC Staff Update” alleged that President Tinubu had instructed the National Population Commission (NPC) to conduct the National Population and Housing Census on Monday, November 20.

The page also has a recruitment link for people interested in working with the commission as census officials.

However, the NPC, in a tweet on its X account on Wednesday, dismissed the report, labelling it fraudulent and noting that the report is not associated with the National Population Commission.

NPC also noted that when there is a date for the census, it will be announced in the national media and on the NPC social media platforms and website.

The commission urged the public to disregard the fake information being circulated on the Facebook page and to always get the correct information concerning the commission’s activities on the official NPC social media handles and website.
