Nigeria's population will become a liability if we don't get it right before 2050 - Obasanjo

 


Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has raised an alarm about Nigeria's population becoming a big issue in 2050 if things are not done right now. 

Speaking at an event in Ogun state on Sunday, June 27, the former President called for population management to ensure we have a population that won't become a liability. 

Obasanjo said; “If we continue, by the year 3000, we will be the largest country in the world. Now, what are we going to do to handle the situation? How are we going to handle that population?

“If we don’t start getting it right now, we will not get it right by 2050.  But population by itself may not be a liability if we do what we have to do. But if we don’t do what we have to do – which we are not doing now – the population will become a liability.

“We should educate ourselves about population management. Some people don’t like family planning and all that, but whatever you do, you must manage your population for the benefit of all that is within your nation.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THIS?

DO YOU THINK OBASANJO IS A SAINT?
