The National Population Commission has said it had put up measures to guard against all forms of malpractices ahead of the forthcoming population and housing census.
The commission also stressed that citizens living away from their states of origin do not need to travel home for the exercise.
It said people would be enumerated at their places of residence.
The spokesperson for the commission, Isiaka Yahaya, said this in an interview on Monday.
“People should stay where they are, to be counted. They are not to move to their states of origin. It is totally against the essence of the census. You have to be counted where you reside because that’s where you enjoy the social facilities like education and health, among others”
