Let me tell you whether the outcome of any census impacts on us negatively or positively.The federal government uses the figures derived from the census for revenue allocation, for planning for the number of health centres, schools and other infrastructure, such as electricity and water, needed for the welfare of the people.Speaking at the event, Hajiya Barde, reiterated the commitment of Imo POWA under her watch to cater for the well-being of families of officers and men in the Command through the provision of lasting infrastructure.“It is unfortunate that our people had often lost out in the allocation of revenue and other critical infrastructure from the federal government because we had naively failed or refused to participate in the census exercise.Uzodimma revealed this to residents of the state when the Chief of Naval Staff, Rear Amiral Awwal Zubairu Gambo, who was represented by Silyranda Lassa, visited the state.When we fail to participate fully in a census exercise, the consequence is that we are undercounted.She said: “Police officers around the world need upgraded health facilities due to the inherent risks that come with policing.“And when we are undercounted, we are shortchanged in the distribution of national resources.The governor had said that the dredging of the Orashi River would open a new economic chapter in the state and South-east at large after its completion.

Let us today jettison that negative attitude by coming out en masse for the 2023 exercise.“ More so, I understand the trauma people living with sickle cell and their families go through in our society today.An Elder Statesman, Mr.It is our civic responsibility as stakeholders to carry this message down to our people and encourage them to participate fully in the national population census exercise.“Even here in Imo State, a reliable census figure will guide us in policy making and economic planning.” Other dignitaries in attendance, included: the Imo state Police Commissioner, Mohammed Ahmed Barde, his management team, Area Commanders, Heads of Departments and Divisional Police Officers as well as the National Coordinator, Association of People Living with Sickle Cell Disorder and the Director, Sickle Cell Orphanage and Underprivileged Home, Agulu, in Anambra State, Mrs.For instance, when we know the exact number of youths in the state and what percentage are unemployed, it will help us in designing more effective youth empowerment programmes.“This will be the greatest achievement of this administration if he succeeds in getting the federal government to accept in dredging the river.“What we are doing today, therefore, is to sensitize all the people on the need to participate fully in the population census of next year.In this article.God knows why he made us the heartland.

This meeting is like a train–the–trainers workshop because it is going to be replicated in all the 27 local government areas and the 305 wards in the state.“Consequently, I hereby direct the sole administrators of the 27 local government areas, to take up the challenge of sensitizing the people on the need to participate in this exercise.” Another Elder Statesman and Secretary of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) Elders’ Committee, Mr.All town union presidents should work with their traditional rulers to ensure that the message is spread to the grassroots.“Unlike the voters’ registration exercise which is open to only those who are 18 years and above, the population census is for everyone, including a day-old baby.What this means is that nobody should be excluded.“I am not supposed to sing praises to the opposition governor, but this singular attraction beats my heart for joy.“I am not supposed to sing praises to the opposition governor, but this singular attraction beats my heart for joy.

It has nothing to do with political parties.It has a lot to do with our future – both economically and politically.We must, therefore, take it as our personal project which must succeed.Emmanuel Ezeanochie, described it as a wonderful achievement because it would boost trade and commerce in the state.” Tags:.
