Nigeria is about half Christian and half Muslim, and is about a third Hausa, a fifth Yoruba, a fifth Igbo, and the rest of the population consists of many, many other ethnic groups. If you can affect the national census and make one group look bigger than it really is, it can get more power than it should have. So, every group tries to interfere with the census, to make their own group look bigger and other groups look smaller.
