The country has an average value of 20.3 years of age as the age women starts having their first child. Nigeria's government has regularly aired out that it wanted to halt the rapid growth in population. Birth contraception have been distributed to certain government owned clinics coupled with steps to discourage people who are looking towards having large families.


The country whose menace has been overpopulation and widespread corruption depends on curbing the high increase in population as a way making a good economic future.
