“We should cooperate with the field workers by allowing them access to our premises for the actual population figure to be captured,” he appealed.

Ogirisen said the demarcation and delineation exercise became imperative primarily because of the nation’s quest to get the proper census for the nation.

Adding that the NPC has the statutory powers to collect, analyze and disseminate demographic data in the country.

It is also mandated to undertake demographic sample surveys, compile, collate and publish migration and civil registration statistics as well as monitor the country’s Population Policy and should be given all the assistance they need to enable them do their job effectively.
