UN puts Nigeria’s population at 195.9m

The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) says 76 percent of Nigerians are between ages 0 to 24, as the country’s population hits 195.9 million.

In its UNFPA state of world population report, with the theme: “The power of choice: Reproductive rights and the demographic,” the UN agency revealed that 148.8 million Nigerians are under the age of 25.

This is in conflict with the National Population Commission (NPC) figures which put Nigeria’s population at 198 million as early as April 2018.

NPC Chairman Eze Duruiheoma said this in New York, the United States of America, when he delivered Nigeria’s statement on sustainable cities, human mobility and international migration at the 51st session of Commission on Population and Development.

Said Duruiheoma: “Nigeria remains the most populous in Africa, the seventh globally with an estimated population of over 198 million.”
