Nigerians’ birth rate, cause for concern

Nigerians’ birth rate, cause for concern

From Fisayo Akinduro, Osogbo
Nigerians have been urged to check the rate at which they give birth in order to give room for a functional society.

The Chief Whip of Osun State House of Assembly Mr  Lekan Olatunji disclosed this during a chat with Correspondents’ chapel in Osogbo.

He said if we desire to grow as a country, we must ensure that we check the rate of reproduction to maintain a stable population.

While stressing the need to develop the country to meet international standards, he said development is a gradual process as all stakeholders must embark on.

The lawmaker said the rate of crime in the country was worrisome.

“When someone is referred to as a good citizen, you will know the person came from a functional society and if otherwise, it shows that it is the replica of their environment.

“How can a family of seven living in a room apartment be responsive to the society and how can an over populated country cater for everyone.”

Olatunji urged the government and respective stakeholders to be proactive in ensuring a better society for everyone.
