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.”
