The Federal Government of Nigeria is said to be considering a population growth control through a birth control mechanism whereby each mother will not have more than two children in order to put poverty and unemployment in the country to check.
This was disclosed by the Minister of Finance, Mrs. Zainab Ahmed, yesterday.
The Minister noted that the move was in realisation of the dangers posed by uncontrolled population growth.
She said the government was consulting religious and traditional leaders nationwide on the issue after which a policy would be formulated.
“We must find out ways to engage our youths to be active and ensure that transportation is effective, available and reasonably priced,” the minister stated.
