I think it is good for every family to do family planning because it help even the society and there will be less pressure on the parent because you will born according to your agreement.. In such case you will be able to give them the proper training they need.. Some children are hoodlums today because they were not brought up well and lack of family planing is one of the reason why parent don't train a child well.

I think family planning is very important because it helps in allocating money well. Considering the present economy not every body has enough to take care of a lot of children so it is important to have a family plan so as to know the maximum and minimum couples can get to.

Family planning is an important aspect in a family. In Nigeria family planning is not taken into consideration much that's why we have high rate of unemployment.I believe that when each household controls how the give birth in this country, Nigeria will gradually improve

This is really interesting. Family planning is really good . With family planning a family can determine what number of kids to have. The country is hard and cost of living in Nigeria is also high. So, high time families began to embrace family planning in order to ensure smooth running of their family.

All developed countries encouraged family planning and also monitors it. 

We should also adopt that method in Nigeria but most importantly monitoring it and making sure people learn from it it's very key.

I think family planning is very important and every family should practice it, though I think one should try and use natural means. 

If every family has the amount of children they can take care of then I think even the criminality rate would reduce. This country is already overpopulated and we could really be one of the solutions.

I've always wanted to say this..family planning is done on the wrong gender!...the female gender has been the one either on contraceptive, Implanon or womb removed which has greatly affected them. The male should be the ones been on this either by automatically reducing their sperm count!

I think family planning is very important to our society.. following the recent Level of our economy

Family planning is still good for the mothers so they can also look good and sexy for their husbands, not after giving birth to six or seven children. They won't have time for their selves and this might make the men look outside their homes.

Thanks to technology they're so many ways to control child birth, but it's best you discuss with your spouse before making any decision cause it can learn to breaking of The marriage.

Family planning is very crucial for the development of family, if family planning can be adopted in our family it will help to race the number of children we can cater for and reduce the rate of abortion, so also the government will be able to provide for the society at large. Mist important the women will be able to rest before giving birth to another child.

thats just it,  not only in Nigeria but Africa as a whole. The problem we have in this Africa is that we love to give birth, weather we can take care of those kids or not thats not their business their own is to give birth. You will see someone saying my mother had only 3kids me i want to make sure we are much, thats always funny to hear

Other ways are abstaingning from sex, using of condoms and female condoms(diaphragm). Though Nigeria doesn't take this thing important.  They have sex at will forgetting that they dont enough funds to trian up the childs. Its really necessary so that the mortality rate in this country will reduce

I believe also, that there are good needs for family planning; not even in just Nigeria. I also think that rather than seeing/making it a form of mandatory law, every family and couple should see it as personal responsibility, to make their life's better and protect the world at large. Without doubt, astronomical increase in population has grown beyond previous research responses. Consequently, human activities increase more rapidly. And one of those activities present-man have found difficult to do away with is, indirectly destroying the ozone layer. Burning of fossil fuels, and the likes will only increase if they are more people doing it. 

The pressure on resources too will drop very pleasantly. Hospital made for 20 will now comfortably accommodate 10. ItsI all for the good of everyone.

in a country like Nigeria with diverrse cultures and high participation in religious activities, I am not surprised we have grown to this number, we really need to start educating people about the importance of family planning, and how child birth control would have a huge impact on the economy

That's the best we can do in Nigeria, our economy does not permit having lot of children. That's why we see so many children on the street begging and doing all sort. Education also plays a major role here as it is proved from statistics that ilitrate give birth to more children without having source of taking good care of them.

Family planning is good. Because it helps reduce population in this country. But I it is better for I to use protection during intercourse than doing family planning.

Because I heard one woman from my community died because she went for family planning and the doctor is fake.

Family planning enables women who wish to limit the size of their families to do so. Evidence suggests that women who have more than 4 children are at increased risk of maternal mortality. By reducing rates of unintended pregnancies, family planning also reduces the need for unsafe abortion.

About Family planning, I strongly believe that the man should be the one doing the planning because a man can impregnate 5 women a day but a woman can only get pregnant once .. so the family planning should be focused more on the men.

Overpopulation is a bane in Nigeria and in a country where abortion is illegal, couples should sit down and discuss how to plan their family. Family planning is necessary because the overpopulation is causing poverty. There are a lot of methods for family planning and it is best to visit a clinic and choose the best option that suits your busget

True. Family planning is very important. Imagine a family with 6 children or more with a very low income. That's not good. Still, those children might be sent out to beg or they can be abandoned. What's now the purpose of giving birth to them in the first place?

One of the major problem faced by Nigeria is that of over population and it is a result of lack of family planning.

I think family planning should be encouraged all round the country due to all the positives that can be derived from it. It should be strictly practiced in Nigeria.

I think this family planning of a thing should be emphasized on in homes. In case of unwanted pregnancy where abortion is not an option, giving birth to such child when you're not ready to raise a child, the child might end up getting partial love. This should be encouraged in homes, one should coat his coat according to the quantity of his material.

Family planing is very good 

But the question is where did you get it done?it causes a lot of damage in women lives,some wouldnt give birth again because it was done wrongly...

When getting your family planing done make sure it is done in a good hospital to avoid story that touches the heart

Family planning is really needed for couples in Nigeria, taking a close look at the economic crisis in Nigeria today, couples should not produce what they can’t train or raise. Even without family planning, couples should know their pockets and know how many children to raise.

Family planning is a blessing two families who really want to plan well for the future. Though what I don't like in this part of the world is that most men feel that the issue of family planning it's a female thing since they are the ones that do the childbearing and all of that but it's family planning it also involves the husband because he is also involved in the childbearing process. There are a good number of contraceptives there are lots of them good options to choose from and when a husband and a wife look at this contraceptives as a couple they can decide on which one suits them best.

Family planning is very important especially in a country like Nigeria. It helps to reduce unwanted pregnancy

Reduce poverty

Reduce overpopulation

Reduce crime 

Reduce level of illiteracy

Reduce the speed of diseases.

Family planning is a good thing and as good as it is both parties must be aware and agree to it before it should be done.
