Current Events: Sub Saharan Africa-Catherine Danesta-Section2

I chose this article because of the massive growth that’s occurring in a third world country which is Nigeria. Its said that in 2050 Nigeria’s population is going to be higher than the US. Because of the pushing and pulling immigration this article is related to the class content. Since their is better jobs and more educational opportunity people move to Nigeria. People move to a new environment because of the difficulties they faced where they lived. Lagos, Kinshasa, Johannesburg, and Cairo are know as mega cities in Africa. The population of Africa is 883 million, but most of them are children to teenage. Questions that this article made me raise is: Why are people having so many babies? Do they offer females free implants?  Does their religion have to do with the women having so many babies?
