It will be very difficult to carry out an actual census because in involves people actually filling out forms and mailing them in. Locating people and all the logistical hurdles in our defunct postal schemes alone will make it nearly impossible to get actual figures. If an actual census were to be carried out, our population might be around 400m and this is something the government is afraid of revealing.

I'm beginning to believe that these bet9ja and sex position guys are Seun's "village people".
just the way he neglected NL since 2005 without updating it is the same way he neglected them without visiting or sending them money.
now they're following him on every thread!

Lolzz

With the number of death recorded since the onset of this administration and coupled with the mass exodus of Nigerians away from the country one should expect a considerable reduction in the population census...albeit ofcourse the Northern population is expected to grow despite all the turmoil there its important they keep a strangle grip on demographics.. grin grin

The polity is currently too ethnically tensed for a national census. Any such move would be sheer waste of resources as it will be linked to RUGA and resisted.

Whats the use, they will always inflate the figures in the North.
