The Effects of Population Growth in Nigeria

Oramah Ikenna Theodore

This study discusses the use of double time growth analysis in the explanation of the need for population control in Nigeria and the potential danger that might emanate from the continuous neglect of environmental issues presented by environmentalists and population demographers in Nigeria and the world at large. In the case of Nigeria which is used here as a spotlight in this discussion, this analysis method is used to identify and analyze the characteristics and demographic/economic effects on a nation covering a land area of 923,768 sq. km, with a population of 120 million and endowed with numerous natural resources (in limited quantity).
