Mr Isaac Odoom, the Asikuma Odoben Brakwa District Chief Executive, has advised Ghanaians to endeavour to make themselves available for counting in this year’s population census.

Speaking to the Ghana News Agency (GNA) at Breman Brakwa in the Central Region, he said it was the civic responsibility of the people to participate in the upcoming population and housing census.

Mr Odoom said the census, which would be organised by the Ghana Statistical Service, would enable the country to know its exact population for proper and effective planning.

“The census is also key to promoting food security and reducing poverty and hunger, among other issues,” he said adding that it was acknowledged globally as the most effective approach to policy and decision making.
