I want to appeal to the Federal Government, through the Ministry of Health, to do more to curb Nigeria’s population explosion. At 180million people, the country is over-populated, considering the infrastructure we have on ground.
If nothing is done on time, by 2030, Nigeria is predicted to be the fourth most populous country in the world, and we can only imagine the effect of that on our bad infrastructure.
In order to save the situation, the government should start orientating Nigerians on the problems over-population can bring to the country. Government should also let the people know the benefits of having the right number of children.
When a family has few children, they will be able to take care of them well, while giving them the best of everything.
