The NPC Chairman, who briefed State House media after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa in Abuja, said the exercise will be different from previous ones since it will be conducted using cutting-edge technology.

He stated that the Commission will employ GPS and satellite photos, and that every building in the country has already been coded for this purpose.

Kwarra stated that the demarcation of enumeration regions is complete, and that the actual exercise will take place between late March and early April.

In light of the country’s troubling security situation in some locations, he expressed hope that the exercise will go well in such areas.
