“This represents 10 out of the 14 LGAs that were demarcated as at the time the commission reached its current level as pursued, prelude to the take-off of the proposed national census scheduled to commence across the country at a later date to be announced by President Muhammadu Buhari.

He noted that the knowledge acquired would enhance infrastructural development in various sectors notably national planning, education, health and agriculture.
