Shehu Sani explains why the FG postponed the 2023 census.

Shehu Sani, a former lawmaker, has revealed why the Federal Government postponed the 2023 national census.

According to the social critic, the federal government passed the buck to President-elect Bola Tinubu because it could not fund the census, which is expected to cost $1.8 billion.

Sani dropped the hint on Saturday with a tweet from his verified Twitter account.

Recall that President Muhammadu Buhari had approved the postponement of the 2023 Population and Housing Census.

The decision followed a meeting with some members of the Federal Executive Council and the National Population Commission on Friday night.

Buhari said a new date would be determined by the incoming administration.

However, Sani said the federal government doesn’t have the money to fund the census.

He wrote, “The simple fact is that the FG doesn’t have $1.8 billion for the Census and now shifted the Wahala to Asiwaju.”
