President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has said no tribe will be left out in the 2021 Population and Housing Census scheduled to commence on June 27, 2021.
Some minority groups have raised major concerns about the upcoming exercise, alleging the manner in which the questionnaires have been designed is discriminatory.
For instance, Fulanis in Ghana complained that their tribe had not been given prominence but rather captured under the ‘other tribes’ section of the questionnaire.
While 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 in reiterating the need for all Ghanaians to get involved in the exercise said “We hope to use the reliable data obtained to plan and develop mother Ghana more effectively”.
