Federal Government To Limit Number Of Children Per Mother

Posted by on October 24th, 2018



The Federal Government of Nigeria has said it
is working on a policy that would limit the
number of children that a mother could have in
the country.
The FG stated that traditional rulers and other
leaders across the country were being engaged
as regards this, adding that the move was aimed
at addressing one of the “ great challenges ” in
the Economic Recovery and Growth Plan of the
Federal Government.
This was made known by the Minister of
Finance, Zainab Ahmed while responding to
questions during a session at the 24th Nigerian
Economic Summit in Abuja.
Zainab noted that the country’s population had
been identified as one of the great challenges
confronting the successful implementation of the
ERGP. She said;
“We have been engaging traditional rulers and
other leaders.
Specifically, we have found out that to be able to
address one of the great challenges that we
identified in the ERGP , which is the growth in
our population, we need to engage these
“ And we hope that with their support, we will
get to a point where we can come out with the
policy that limits the number of children that a
mother can have because that is important for
sustaining our growth. ”
When asked about the sustainability of the ERGP
by successive governments, Ahmed argued that
the plan would be sustained as it was purely a
document that focused on the development of
the Nigerian economy.
