The Federal Commissioner representing the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) at the National Population Commission Abuja.Hon. Joseph Shazin Kwali, has said that he would partner with the media professionals to sensitize the public during the forthcoming census in the territory.
Shazin Kwali, who made this known while speaking with newsmen in Kwali, also said the traditional rulers would be used to mobilize their subjects for the head counts.
His words: “with my relationship with the press in the FCT, we will not leave out any gap. We will sensitize, mobilize, inform and necessary jungles will be used. Other media will be used, contact with the traditional rulers and other relevant stakeholders will be considered. We will all do that to make sure the people know that there will be census”.
He disclosed that the demarcation of the areas in the FCT had been completed, adding that the enumeration of the areas was going on now in the states across the federation.
While speaking on the Corona Virus Pandemic, Shazin Kwali advised Nigerians to always obey all the protocols guiding the deadly disease.
This, he added that Nigerians should pray to God in order to overcome the pandemic ravaging the nation.
Reacting to the recent clash between the farmers/herders in Kwali, Federal Commissioner said: “All the leaders of Kwali be it political or traditional should come together to hold stakeholders’ meeting to make sure that something like this is averted now and future”.
Shazin, however, pleaded with Nigerian youths to desist from any act capable of causing rancor and acrimony in the country, and warned them against drug addiction and any intoxicating substance during the festivities.
