Obasanjo Takes Full Control, Holds Very Important International Meeting In Otta Farm, Today

Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, in conjunction with 18 Global Population Experts, under the banner of the Africa Progress Group, APG, met today, to fashion out how to make Africa’s population an asset, rather than a liability.

The international session was held at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library, in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.

The Experts, with South African Philanthropist and Businessman, Jonathan Oppenheimer, as a Special Guest, presented diverse papers on population issues.

Obasanjo, in his submission, who did not attack President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress, APC, noted that population in Africa, is partly responsible for terrorism in the continent, and called on governments to address the menace, before it gets out of hand.

He cited boko haram insurgents in Nigeria, lamenting that 90 percent of its followers admitted that they joined, because of lack of jobs.

“The report stated that out of 10 followers questioned, only one said he joined the boko haram, because of religion; the nine others, because they could not find jobs to do. So, in essence, population can be said to be responsible for terrorism.”

Also in his presentation, Omolayo Opeloye, of the Obafemi Awolowo University, OAU, Ile-Ife, observed that: If the population of a country or continent would be an asset, it must be matched by the development indices, which invariably would result in high GDP and per capital income.”

The Professor, who presented on the “Islamic Perceptive of Population Control in the African Context”, recommended good governance as “sine qua non” to meaningful development, adding that, “therefore, African nation’s political class should leave no stone unturned, in ensuring enthronement of good governments in different countries of the continent.”
