Youtube Channel "Good Times Bad Times", brings us a great video about the growing population.

Nigeria is currently experiencing a population boom, with the population estimated to grow from over 170 million in 2010 to over 440 million by 2050. This population growth is placing a strain on the country’s resources and Infrastructure, and is contributing to a number of social and environmental problems. One of the key issues caused by Nigeria’s overpopulation is the lack of available resources, which is leading to increased Poverty and inequality. The country’s limited Airable land, for example, is being used to support a growing population, while the majority of Nigerians live in poverty. In addition, the high population density is leading to increased levels of air and water Pollution, as well as food shortages.
