Former lawmaker Shehu Sani has claimed that the Federal Government postponed the 2023 national census because it couldn’t fund the estimated cost of $1.8 billion.

In a post on his verified Twitter handle, Sani alleged that the government passed the responsibility to the President-elect, Bola Tinubu.

This follows President Muhammadu Buhari’s approval of the postponement of the 2023 Population and Housing Census, following a meeting with members of the Federal Executive Council and the National Population Commission on Friday night.

The President stated that a new date would be determined by the incoming administration.

Sani, a social critic, alleged that the government doesn’t have the funds to conduct the census and has now shifted the responsibility to Tinubu.

He wrote, “The simple fact is that the FG doesn’t have $1.8 billion for the Census and now shifted the Wahala to Asiwaju.”

The postponement of the national census has caused mixed reactions among Nigerians.

Some have expressed disappointment, citing the importance of accurate population data for development planning and resource allocation.

Others have questioned the government’s commitment to conducting the census, given that it has been postponed several times in the past.

The last population census in Nigeria was conducted in 2006, and experts have warned that the country’s population figures may be inaccurate due to the lack of an updated census.

The 2023 census was expected to provide vital data for policymakers, researchers, and investors to make informed decisions.
