LAUNCH A FREE CONDOM DISTRIBUTION INITIATIVE – BRUCE URGES FG

Former senator representing Bayelsa East senatorial district Senator Benedict Murray-Bruce has called on the Federal Government to kickstart a free condom distribution scheme through its ministry of health.

According to the former Senator, the initiative was paramount owing to the current economic challenges in the country, “In light of the deepening economic challenges that Nigeria faces, which have gravely impacted the middle class and exacerbated poverty levels, it is imperative for the incoming Minister of Health or the federal government to launch a free condom distribution initiative immediately, he said.

Bruce further explained that population control should be part of the necessary steps the Federal Government need to implore considering the current economic trend “ensuring accessibility to contraceptives is a crucial step in mitigating a potential population explosion, particularly when the financially constrained majority may prioritise basic necessities over family planning methods. An ounce of prevention now can avert a looming socio-economic catastrophe in the future.
