“Family Planning is so important in population balance, especially now because if our GDP is struggling and our population is exploding, unemployment and hunger will increase and other social services like education, health will be inadequate…” – HE, Dr Ipalibo Harry Banigo, Deputy Gov of Rivers State.
It’s a new dawn to intensify activities for more awareness/uptake of family planning for the Rivers State Family Planning Advocacy Working Group (FLAWG) and its offshoot media group; the Rivers Media for Health and Family Planning Network (RMH&FPN) as government promises its continued support to strengthen family planning programs and implementation in the state. This commitment was made by Her Excellency, Dr Ipalibo Harry Banigo, Deputy Governor of Rivers State during an advocacy visit to her office by the FP advocate groups.
Her Excellency, who is the National Champion for Family Planning in Nigeria, made a promise to use every available opportunity to talk to women on the need to have only the number of children they can cater for especially in difficult times such as this. She welcomed the groups in her usual ‘open arms’ policy of a mother in the state.
