Wow! Nigeria to add up at least 189m people by 2050. Read>

Nigeria has been projected to add no fewer than 189 million people to its present population between 2018 and 2050, the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA) has said.

UN, in a new report: ‘2018 Revision of World Urbanisation Prospects’, projected that around 2.5 billion more people would be living in cities by 2050.



The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that DESA in earlier report said: “By 2050, the third most populous country will be Nigeria, which currently ranks seventh, and which is poised to replace the U. S.”.
Announcing the latest findings, DESA said most of the projected increase in urbanisation is expected to be highly-concentrated in just a handful of countries.
“Together, India, China and Nigeria will account for 35 per cent of the projected growth of the world’s urban population between 2018 and 2050…
“It is projected that India will have added 416 million urban dwellers, China 255 million and Nigeria 189 million,” DESA said.
The UN department said by 2050, two out of every three people are likely to be living in cities or other urban centres, highlighting the need for more sustainable urban planning and public services.
Owing to both demographic shifts and overall population growth, that means that around 2.5 billion people could be added to urban areas by the middle of the century, predicts DESA predicted.
The report also estimates that by 2030, the world could have 43 so-called megacities – up from 31 today, according to reports.
