NPC Chairman, Nasir Kwarra disclosed this while speaking with State House reporters after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Kwarra added that the technological tools to be deployed would be able to code building and landmass, detailing information such as location, landscapes among others.
The NPC chairman, who said his commission would ensure a credible exercise, added that non-Nigerians would equally be counted so long as they are in the country at the time of the exercise.
He said the exercise would be different from the previous ones marred by controversies with high end technology.
