The alarming rate of teenage pregnancy in the Rural areas

The incessant increase is rate of teenage pregnancy in the Rural area is so alarming and obnoxious, this societal problem is as dangerous and damaging as other social vices e.g Cultism, Drug, thuggery etc

This societal abnormality as begin to seems normal in the Rural areas, this problem is not peculiar to the Rural area, but the recent rise in the rate of teenage pregnancy in that part is unprecedented

My recent visit to my village,in the Yuletide mood expose me to another dimension of this vices, which got me pissed off.

Hardly can you see a girl in her early 20's and teens without having a baby or two out of wedlock, is so disheartening hearing stories of 14,15 years old kids so exposed sexually, the moral bankruptcy of our youths both male and females is so injurious to our societal standing and status, Urgent measures are needed to be taken to avert the pending danger of this abnormality ...

Pointing out the problems without proposing solutions is fruitless, So in lieu of the aforementioned problem, these are the my proposed solutions

1. Including sex education in our secondary school syllabus

2. Organising seminars to orientate the youth about the danger and control of sex, the message should be
Targeted to both sexes, not just at the girls.

3. Parent have a lot of task in this context, by teaching and counselling their wards about the danger of tenage pregnancy and other moral lessons

4. The community as a whole as their part to play by reporting any suspicious dealings with underage girls and boys and also placing caution on them

5. The adult male are the major perpetrators of this evil act, by devilishly taking advantage of this tenage girls..knowing fully the pending danger it can cause to the girls career ambition and future, forgetting the girl can be their sisters, daughters, etc. adult males are advised to find conscience if they gat none, to find end to this societal problem. And Lastly

5. Criminalising the act of teenage pregnancy: I think this will go a long way in curbing this crises, by punishing the offender with a threat of imprisonment ,I think this will enable other youth take caution of this act knowing fully the punishment awaiting offenders...I think females have the potential of becoming whatever they desires, so we shouldn't allow the selfish act of some people ,with their desire of few minutes pleasure to ruin the future of our female children by taking advantage of their gullibility.

I think we all have our roles to play in curbing this crises..

Poverty plus illiteracy plus ignorance plus lust plus irresponsibility plus joblessness plus ample opportunities equals teenage pregnancy!

Teenage pregnancies are more common in rural areas because of their idle state of minds. experimentally, Idleness increases sexual urge

Almost half of the population of the world lives in rural regions and mostly in a state of poverty. Such inequalities in human development have been one of the primary reasons for unrest and, in some parts of the world, even violence.

12 year old kids in Calabar know Everything about bleeping....
Engage even in threesomes...no be joke matters....
And your fathers, your brothers, your uncles do well to boost these numbers by searching for younger unsuspecting girls to lay the pipe into.
One home told me once ure above 15 as a gurl, ure already expired and he wasn't joking....
You really can't blame nobody for this....
Parents maybe

They don't abort like city girls that's why they are many.

Their mothers detects the pregnancy and tell them, thereby denying them the chance of abortion but urban girls detect even movements of sperms and terminate them before they could fertilize.
