She claimed that in order to resolve the population dilemma, Nigeria must precisely estimate its population and put policies in place to purposefully produce a manageable and productive population.
Mundihas said that in order for Nigeria to reverse insecurity, banditry, unemployment, and the country’s declining economic fortunes, the country must implement the national population policy and invest in family planning.

“Nations like Japan and Canada are experiencing population decline and seeking immigrants,” she said. Historically, Africa has never been scared of population growth, but despite this, productivity has been declining. Population should be a good thing.
So what is happening? The world population is expected to reach nine billion people by 2050, with Asia and Africa contributing the majority of that total. Nigeria’s population is projected to reach 400 million by the same 2050.

In order to ensure a productive population that would support national growth, she encouraged the President to allocate enough financing for family planning, implement the country’s population policy, and work with subnational governments.
Despite the fact that having more people is not a bad problem, Mundihas claimed that if they were to pursue less economic options, there would be a higher chance of banditry, crime, and backwardness, which would be fatal for the nation.
