Centre for Social and inter Ethnic Cohesion, CENSIC, has lent its voice to the call by Emir of Kano, Alhaji Mohammed Lamido Sanusi 11, for adequate family planning.

In a statement issued on Friday by its Director of Public Relations, Wellington Olaiya, said it has become imperative to plan our family to curtail the evils associated with over population.

“It is indisputable as research has shown, that over-population to a great extent impacts peace and security in any given society. 

“As a developing country, the inability of the government to provide essential services to its citizens is traceable to over-population irrespective of the issues of corruption and mismanagement. 

“We, therefore, call on the federal government to immediately address the problem of over-population as a matter of national security.” The statement said.

CENSIC SUPPORTS SANUSI’S CALL FOR FAMILY PLANNING

Abuja Nigeria, Dec. 27, 2019 – We are in total support of the call by the Emir of Kano Alhajj Muhammad Sanusi II for family planning.

It is indisputable as research has shown, that over-population to a great extent impacts peace and security in any given society. As a developing country, the inability of the government to provide essential services to its citizens is traceable to over-population irrespective of the issues of corruption and mismanagement. We, therefore, call on the federal government to immediately address the problem of over-population as a matter of national security.

About Centre for Social and Inter-Ethnic Cohesion (CENSIC):

We are an advocacy tank established in 2017 when a concert of developed minds met in Port Harcourt Rivers State to propagate the benefits of a cohesive multi-tribal and multi-religious society. We promote real unity and cohesion in Nigeria by decoupling policies that promote inter-ethnic division or hatred.

We stand for a secure and genuinely united Nigeria – not one that is united only in theory or geographical space. We desire a country whose laws provide equal operating space for all ethnic groups. We want a Nigeria where ethnicity or religion does not influence national or state policies. We strive to steer the minds of those in charge of statecraft in the right direction, to ensure only those with the most developed minds run the affairs of state.
