2023 Census: FG urges PWDs to get involved, be counted

The Federal Government has urged Persons with Disabilities (PWDs) to stand out and ensure that they are counted in the forthcoming 2023 national population census.

This is contained in a statement in Abuja on Wednesday, by Mr Mbanefo Michaels, Media Aide to Mr James Lalu, Executive Secretary, National Commission for Persons with Disabilities.

Lalu gave the charge while speaking at a town-hall meeting with stakeholders, organised by the National Population Commission (NPC) to sensitise the public on the 2023 census.

He appealed to PWDs to come out en mass to be counted during the exercise.

According to him, the participation of PWDs in the forthcoming population census will give them a sense of belonging.

He reminded them that their numbers always command political and economic strength, especially as it relates to the equitable distribution of national wealth.

The Executive Secretary also urged parents and guardians to encourage their wards to actively participate in the census to ensure visibility and social inclusion in the scheme of things in the country
