Nigerian rapper, Eldee The Don has given reasons why he believes Nigeria’s population is not 190million as widely believed.
According to the rapper, Nigeria’s population is pegged at 190million by politicians for certain gains.
Eldee The Don tweeted:
“Ok, for the 105th time,….
Nigeria’s population IS NOT 190million! Aren’t there any demography experts among us!?? Why are we continuing to perpetrate this falsehood. Densely populated no doubt but is it more populated than China? Oya let’s do primary 5 math….
Lagos, Nigeria = 452sq miles,
Average building height is <3 floors.
Beijing, China = 6490sq miles.
Average building height is >8 story.
Beijing has 21million people, and Lagos has 17million people??
Haba!? E beru Olohun now!
Even if the average building height in Lagos was 10 floors, it still wouldn’t be as populated as Beijing. There’s just not enough land mass.
When African politicians stop using population as a distribution metric for national wealth, the real numbers will emerge.
Guinea is claiming a population growth rate of 37% annually Even if they’re taking national sex breaks every 2 hours, doesn’t it take 9 months for a baby to be born??”
