Traditional Rulers in Oyo State want all border disputes before settled before the next census to ensure accurate data in the country.

The traditional rulers stated this while speaking at the flag of phase eleven of Enumeration Area Demarcation in preparation for the next Census in Nigeria organized by National Population Commission, NPC. 

Some of the traditional rulers who made the observation noted that if the disputes were not resolved it would affect the outcome of the census. 

The Onigboho of Igboho, Oba John Oyetola said part of his town should be cleared before the census so that the area would not be counted as part of Osun State. 

Other monarchs at the event also called on National Population Commission to ensure breakdown of the census results for traditional rulers to know the actual number of people in their domain. 

Responding, the Oyo State Federal Commissioner, National Population Commission, Dr Eyitayo Oyetunji the commission would still conduct the exercise and wait till when all disputes were resolved before allocating the number to the right place.
