The Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrosheed Adewale Akanbi, Telu I, has actually spoken opposing the technique of family planning in Nigeria stating its application will certainly exterminate the human race.
The king stated this while making his contribution to a public discussion on family planning just recently.
In his point of view, Nigerians ought to appreciate the dictate of God on reproduction. He said that the presumption that overpopulation causes poverty is not correct. He stated that what China has actually accomplished as the most heavily populated country as well as arising giant of the planet can be connected to the nation’s massive human resources.(family planning)
“There is so much misconception and about population and national growth. There is so much more strength in procreation but we oftentimes ignorantly relate overpopulation to poverty. If this belief is true, then China by now should be the most affected nation by poverty. But this is not so because today, China is an emerging world power and a nation that is getting it right in all fronts.
Few powerful nations are getting it wrong for placing limit on childbearing. Today, 75% of the Canadian population is made up of foreigners born outside Canada. In few years to come, the land may be controlled by foreigners.
Aside from this, the dictate of God on procreation should be respected by individuals willing to bear more children. Grace is great. Having more children is not a measurement of poverty. Many rose from grass to grace.
Education is the key. China became powerful because of its passion for technical education. The government should focus more on improving technical education. Education is as important as human blood.
Basic education from primary to secondary should be free and made compulsory for everyone. Higher education should be subsidized. These will encourage average Nigerians to pursue technical education This is the strength of any developed nation.
The huge population of northern Nigeria should give them an edge over other regions. There is a need to harp on the quality of education and not putting an embargo on the numbers of children.” the monarch said
