UN special adviser Jeffrey Sachs (perhaps Kissinger’s protege, supporter of eugenics and the Tuskegee experimenters) played the devil’s advocate that he is going by his recent suggestion that Nigeria get on the same path as China. He recently suggested that Nigeria adopt a three-child policy in order to “manage” her rising population which is said to currently stand at 160 million.
My opinion is that the “advice” is sick and deranged. Why not focus on improving the quality of life and get Nigerians to be more productive instead of her past and present history consumption. Nigeria has enough resources for more billions of Nigerians. Efficient management of these resources, both human and otherwise, is very crucial in order for her numerous ethnic nationalities to live comfortably and prosper. It is very much possible and requires belief and diligent commitment.
