Former Ohanaeze Ndigbo Spokesman calls for Census postponement
Former Ohanaeze Ndigbo Spokesman calls for Census postponement.
Former Spokesman of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide Chief Chuks Ibegbu yesterday stated that his call for the postponement of the scheduled 2023 national population and housing Census was because the
exercise will generate too much controversies that will be inimical to the nation which will be too tasking for the new administration to begin with to address immediately it takes over.
He advised that while the exercise is postponed, enough time should be allowed for all the preparations to ensure a successful and credible exercise to be effected warning that if conducted within the remaining 35 days of President Buhari’s led federal government, it will be too much for his successor-administration to cope with the arising.
He made the call in a press statement he marked ” Postpone The 2023 , let all court cases end swearing in Political Officers ” advising that the exercise be left for the incoming administration to get better prepared for the Census.
Ibegbu also recommended that all pending court cases on the 2023 elections should be disposed off before May 29th when the elected officials will be sworn into offices saying that not so doing will subject them to going to court and by so doing be would distracted from performing their duties.
In the alternative he suggested that
” president Buhari’s tenure can be shifted by 3 months using ‘doctrine of necessity’ to ensure all legal matters concerning the election are disposed off”.
According to him ” the world will not fall if this is done neither will the true winner 0f the election become the loser”.
