The Population Question

 In Questions needing answers

Nigeria’s population is currently over 180 million people. At an average fertility of 5.5 births per woman, this figure is projected to increase by 10% in 2020, 43% in 2030 and 120% by 2050 to over 300 million people. How do our culture, belief systems and norms influence our population growth or control? How prepared are we – as Nigerians – in feeding ourselves, providing the much needed infrastructures, building quality human capital and conducting credible enumeration exercises?
