The National Population Commission (NPC) says birth certificate will not be issued to persons older than 18 years of age.

NPC State Director of Oyo State , Mr Akin Oyetunde, said recently in Ibadan that this is in accordance to Act 1992, Birth and Death.

He said, NPC is guided by an Act propagated in 1992.

So, any child born before 1992 and those above 18 years will be issued a birth certificate.

Instead of birth certificate, people born before 1992 and those above18 will be given Attestation of Birth.

However, those below 18 years will be issued birth certificate by the Commission.

He added that all local governments in the state have birth and death registration centres.

No local government has less than three registration centres. The certificate issued at the centres are the same everywhere and acceptable wherever it’s tendered.

On the postponed National Population and Housing Census earlier slated for 2023, Oyetunde said everything was set for the exercise.

He said, we are prepared and only need the Federal Government to give the go ahead.

All materials for the excercise have been distributed to local governments.

All those who are to take part in the Census have been trained, all is set to hit the ground running.
