    “Gedel Ahmed Mohammed said the 2021 population and housing census must take cognizant of the fact that the Fulani community have been in Ghana for more than 400 years and exist in almost all part of the sixteen regions of Ghana and therefore deserves to be respected and counted by name like any other ethnic group in Ghana.
