The Executive Secretary of Oyo State Primary Healthcare Management Board, Dr. Lanre Abass has disclosed that shortage of social amenities was as a result of uncontrolled population explosion in the country.

Abass stated this while delivering a paper, titled “Family Planning, Child Spacing, Empowering People, Building Nations” at the 2017 edition of the annual media forum organised by Development Communications (DevComs) Network in collaboration with the state ministry of Health in Ibadan.

He maintained that inadequate social amenities, such as good roads, access to healthcare facilities, schools among others was due to the increasing population without adequate plans.

Abass, who was represented by Mrs. Adeola Awakan, Family Planning Coordinator in the state maintained that “if population is controlled, there are many things families and the nation in general will benefit”.
He said that population that was controlled will “empower government to plan effectively for the needs of the people through manageable population growth.

“If population is controlled, it ensures adequate provision of necessary social amenities like electricity, good water, good road network and housing.

“It reduces juvenile delinquencies and other antisocial vices, enhances provision of good jobs for school leavers, overall improvement in the quality of life of the people.

“It would enhance adequate provision of food, housing, employment, education, water supply and health care to the communities

“It would improve the economic and social status of women. It would reduce dependence ratio. The economically dependent part of the population will be reduced compared to the productive population.” ‎‎
