The Federal Executive Council (FEC) had approved the Revised National Policy on Population for Sustainable Development on the 9th of June 2021. The intention is to address all population and development concerns to help improve the quality of life and the standard of living in Nigeria.

The National Population Commission disclosed this in a statement. The statement reads, “The Revised National Policy on Population for Sustainable Development, which was approved by the Federal Executive Council on 9th June 2021, is a comprehensive document that addresses all population and development concerns with an overarching goal to improve the quality of life and standard of living of the people of Nigeria.

The main thrust of the policy is to reduce the population growth rate and accelerate the demographic transition for the realization of the demographic dividend. It is a strategic tool guiding the implementation of national development plans.

The implementation of the policy is premised on an institutional framework that is clearly defined in the policy with the NCPM as the apex organ. The Council is chaired by the President with the Vice President as the Deputy Chairman. Heads of relevant government Ministries, Agencies, and Departments will serve as members of the Council.

The National Population Commission is the coordinating agency of the National Population Policy charged with the responsibility of ensuring collaboration and synergy across sectoral lines and monitoring the implementation of the population policy.

Principal Officers of the National Assembly, Ministers, and Heads of MDAs, prominent Traditional Rulers, Ambassadors, Captains of Industries, and Representatives of development agencies are expected to grace the event.

This shows that the President wants a better Nigeria and he is working assiduously to achieve that.

National Population Commission is a principal commission of Nigeria, responsible for producing data about the Nigerian people (its population) and economy. The commission is part of the Nigerian Ministry of Interior and its head is appointed by the President of Nigeria. The commission is currently headed by Nasir Isa Kwarra”.
