The Oyo State Team Leader of the Nigerian Urban Reproductive Health Initiative (NURHI), Mrs Stella Akinso, said on Friday that family planning was a key economic strategy in a recession.

 

 

Akinso said in Ibadan that the benefits of family planning went beyond the family level to improving the nation’s health and economic indices.

 

 

According to her, family planning in a recession would enable government to plan population growth and optimise the use of limited resources towards development projects for the benefits of the citizenry.
