The House of Representatives has urged the Federal Government to announce a date when the next census in the fourth quarter of 2019 will commence.

The lawmakers made the request during plenary on Wednesday at the lower chamber of the National Assembly in Abuja, the nation’s capital. They also called on the government to make provisions for census funds in the 2019 appropriation bill ahead of the exercise.

The lawmakers asked the government to mobilise the National Population Commission for the completion of Enumeration Area Demarcation and preliminary preparation of the census.
