The entire world over is celebrating today as world population day. And the 2018 theme for this all important health related anniversary is “Family Planning is a Human Right.”
Besides the facts about the theme on family planning and human right, there is an unclear agenda in relating human right to population reduction.
With a known fact about the power of population such as the strength of human capital and economic development and growth, I posited some factual questions if the World Powers do really mean well when they stated that population control will reduce poverty in African continent.

Pls, let’s not remain silent why the world perish out of ignorant. For them, the best solution to poverty is the reduction of human population. Now you can see the reason why the world leaders are silent and indifferent over the killings in Nigeria and other parts of Africa.

Live and let others live! As you do so the Most High God will protect your own life and it shall be well with you in Jesus name – Amen! Happy World Population Day!!!
