Reacting to this, the former Nigerian presidential aide said the man’s idea about having many children is why African is very poor.


In his view, once it rains, Africans think of women, instead of agriculture. His post reads;

“The Bauchi carpenter who wants to have 40 kids is a symptom of why Africa is poor. In 1960, Nigeria’s population was 45 million. UK’s was 52 million. In 2021, Nigeria’s population is 200 million. UK’s is 67 million. Once it rains, Africans think of women, instead of agriculture!”
