Any Word On Release Of The Census? by DaHitler(m): 5:35am On Jun 19, 2006
Has anyone heard anything about the scheduled release of the census? From what I understand, it was supposed to be released by early to mid June. But there is still word on it. I mean, the Government had several months to get this information together.

If there is a delay on this census, it would be a nice way to show the world that the Nigerian Government is inefficient and run by morons. To make matters worse, about half of the cost of the Census is being paid for by the EU so it is critical that it is released on time.

Actually, thats not a joke. I heard a rumour that they are delaying the release till sept/oct so that might be the case. If I remember correctly, they claim to have skipped over a few communities.

If I had to put a finger on it, they probably found out that there are not as many Nigerians as the previous Census would suggest and this is put the Government in panic mode. Imagine releasing figures of only 80 million Nigerians when everyone is expecting to see close to 150. Its definitely not going to be pretty.
