Chairperson of the Unity Party, Femi Claudius-Cole, has written an open to the President stating that the Unity Party will not support the Mid-term Population And Housing Census.

In the opening statement of her letter, Madam Femi Claudius-Cole stated quite clearly that she and the Unity Party do not and will not support the Midterm Census.

She cited various reasons as to why her political party is not supporting the Census which is to commence on 10th December 2021.

Madam Femi Claudius-Cole explained that the timing of the Census is inappropriate giving the fact that local council elections in preparation for the 2023 elections are underway, adding that the Census will be used for gerrymandering.

She added that the cost of the Census is huge to be conducted in 2021 when the usual ten year interval Census will be conducted again in 2025.

Madam Femi Claudius-Cole on behalf of the Unity Party stressed that the Census is untimely and that her party will not support it.
