Chai!! Nigerian Men Consume Over 400 Million Condoms Annually, NGO

 

The Society of Family Health (SFH), a Non-Governmental Organisation, has said on Tuesday, October 31, 2017 that Nigerians consume over 400 million condoms annually.

The Managing Director of SFH, Bright Ekweremadu, who said this in Lagos yesterday, however, added that the 400 million condom consumption rate could fall below expectation based on the society’s estimation of unprotected sex in the country.
He spoke during the launch of Flex condom, a brand that, he said, came with a lot of flavours and had more strength and could last longer during sex.
His words: “We have been in the business of condom production for over 30 years. We have done a lot of things in educating people to embrace abstinence with our zip-up campaign. There are obviously sexually active Nigerians who may not totally abstain from sex and this led to our alternative, particularly at this time when HIV/AIDs is prevalent in the country.
”What we are doing now is expanding choices for the sexually active Nigerians who are using condoms. So we have varieties of condoms with different features to make sex worth it, for those who will use the condom. We are not promoting sex. What we are promoting is responsible sex. If you know you cannot abstain, the best thing is to use condom; it’s safe for you and your partner.”

This information is a startling revelation in view of the undocumented rising scale of unprotected sex in the country as observed by the NGO.
