The Federal Government on Tuesday declared that it was working hard to come out with a policy that would limit the number of children that a mother could have in Nigeria .

It stated that traditional rulers and other leaders across the country were being engaged as regards this , adding that the move was aimed at addressing one of the “ great challenges ” in the Economic Recovery and Growth Plan of the Federal Government .

The Minister of Finance, Zainab Ahmed , who disclosed this while responding to questions during a session at the 24th Nigerian Economic Summit in Abuja , noted that the country’ s population had been identified as one of the great challenges confronting the successful implementation of the ERGP .

Ahmed said , “We have been engaging traditional rulers and other leaders .

Specifically, we have found out that to be able to address one of the great challenges that we identified in the ERGP , which is the growth in our population, we need to engage these institutions.

“ And we hope that with their support , we will get to a point where we can come out with the policy that limits the number of children that a mother can have because that is important for sustaining our growth . ”

When asked about the sustainability of the ERGP by successive governments, Ahmed argued that the plan would be sustained as it was purely a document that focused on the development of the Nigerian economy.
