202 Census: "Whatever Tribe Or Ethnicity You Come From, You Will Be Counted"- Prez Nana Addo

His Excellency President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has noted that no tribe will be left out in the 2021 Population and Housing Census expected to commence on June 27, 2021.

Some minority groups have raised concerns about the upcoming exercise, alleging discrimination in the way the questionnaires have been crafted citing instances of Fulanis in Ghana complaining that their tribe had been captured under the ‘other tribes’ section of the questionnaire instead of being given prominence.

Addressing the chiefs and people of the North East Region on Tuesday, June 22, 2021, as part of his tour of the region, President Akufo-Addo assured that no one will be discriminated against.

“I say everybody and I mean everybody will be counted without discrimination. Whatever your tribe and ethnicity, so long as you are here on June 27, 2021, census night, get counted.”

The President had reiterated the need for all Ghanaians to get involved in the exercise saying “We hope to use the reliable data obtained to plan and develop mother Ghana more effectively”.
