Bauchi Local Government Council is to engage Imams, Pastors, Ward Heads and other traditional leaders in sensitising residents before the conduct of the next National Population and Housing Census.

The Chairman of the council, Mahmud Babamaji disclosed this when he received the Federal Commissioner of the National Population Commission (NPC) in Bauchi State, Ibrahim Darazo during an advocacy visit to the council ahead of the demarcation exercise of areas in the local government.

Babamaji, who described population census as a vital tool for economic and development planning promised that the local government would sensitise the people on the exercise to get maximum cooperation.

“We will provide enabling environment, accommodation and food to your workers who will conduct the exercise.”

Alhaji Ibrahim Darazo said the demarcation exercise, which would commence on September 4, is the most important aspect aimed at making the census easy and preventing malpractice.

According to him, the commission had so far conducted the demarcation exercise in 19 out of the 20 local governments of the state.

“We therefore solicit the support of the local government council to our staff so that the exercise will be successful,” he said.
