Census Night: MPs to be counted in their constituencies

Parliament did not sit today, Friday, June 25, 2021 because the Parliamentarians are to travel to their various constituencies to participate in the ongoing National Population and Housing Census (NPHC)

The Deputy Majority Leader and MP for Effutu, Alexander Afenyo-Markin who announced this during his presentation of the Business Statement, said the decision not to sit  was taken by the Business Committee in consultation with the Speaker of Parliament, Rt. Hon. Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin.

The Ghana Statistical Service (GSS), in consultation with the Office of the President, has endorsed Sunday, June 27, 2021, as Census Night.

The date has also been approved by the National Census Steering Committee.

The 2021 Population and Housing Census (PHC), with the slogan, “You Count, Get Counted” will provide the opportunity for the country to gather credible and comprehensive data on the citizenry towards transforming the economy for sustainable development.

The Census Night will be the reference point for all information to be collected on the population and mark the beginning of the enumeration phase of the 2021 Census exercise.
