Sen. Olarenwa Tejuosho, Chairman Senate Committee on Health, has called on the executive to release the additional one million dollars meant for Family Planning services.

Tejuosho (APC-Ogun) made the call during the 5th Nigeria Family Planning Conference on Thursday in Abuja.


He noted that FP was a major contributor in the progress of Nigeria, saying it will help reduce the nation’s populace.

“If we continue to allow the families grow, it means we are heading to doom.
“The most important thing is the “green dot’’ and every woman should be encouraged to walk into any outlet with the green dot to access FP services,” he said.

The chairman also said that it was important for the nation to improve on their FP purposes in order to reach its full potential.

He added that investment in FP was one of the smartest investments in achieving demographic dividend.

Tejuosho further said that access to FP services would help reduce mortality rates in the society.

He therefore admonished the government, private sector and stakeholders to improve on the accessibility of FP products.
