Pronatalism: An Antithetical Value to Nigeria’s Reforms
No Thumbnail Available
Inspite of Nigeria’s heterogeneity, certain values are common to all the elements. One of such values is pronatalism which is defined as beliefs and practices that underlie preference for many children. The paper appraises the stance of government on population matters over the years and notes that the co-incidence of the ills of rapid population growth and non-responsive governance has, more than any other factor, contributed to the present state of socio-political deformation. Therefore, (based on this diagnosis) it is advocated that a negation of the value of pronatalism be factored into the reforms, if they must work
