The National Population Commission (NPC) says there are an estimated 206 million people living in Nigeria.
Nasir Kwarra, chairman of the commission, was speaking on Tuesday at a press conference on the commencement of the 11th phase of the Enumeration Area Demarcation (EAD) in Abuja.
Kwarra said the figure was arrived at following projections, adding that the exact population cannot be known without a census.
