Disclosing this to NaijaAgroNet as outcome of the round 5 of the Performance Monitoring and Accountability 2020 (PMA2020) survey, in a family planning indicator briefing held in Lagos, Thursday by Pathfinders International, Dr. Funmilola OlaOlorun of Department of Community Medicine, College of Medicine, University of Ibadan-Nigeria said that across board is 33.1 per cent, against 29.7 per cent in 2017.

She told NaijaAgroNet that the survey was on all women and married between the ages of 15 and 49 years in the first quarter of 2018, stressing that for the Long Acting cum Permanent (LAP) Lagos witnessed a declined from 2017 all-time records from 4.2 per cent to 4.0 per cent for all and from 6.3 per cent the strictly married came down to 6.1 per cent for the period under review.

  2. Students should consider forming Study Groups with fellow students, perhaps after school on the day before the exam. They earn points by attending, and get valuable feedback about what is likely to be covered. Students need to consider using time on lunch or after-school on the day of their exam as needed to complete their test. Plan ahead, students!

  3. It’s not only modern men in power positions who are clueless about women. If Ben Franklin were alive today, I’d love to whack him upside the head with my Susan B. Anthony T-shirt. Okay, I’ll give him credit for the lightening rod, bifocals, the Franklin stove, and for helping lay the groundwork for the Declaration of Independence. But by all accounts, the guy was a serious womanizer.
