Nigeria's Population

Basically, as at the last population census conducted in 2005/2006, Nigeria's population was estimated to be 140 million. This in some countries is regarded as OVER-POPULATION while in other it is Under-POPULATION depending on the available natural resources. Where the available resources is greater than the population, it is regarded as Under-Population and vice vesa. But considering the Nigeria case, we have more than enough resources that can cater for everyone and we still lack them.
It's only nigeria that i've seen that has fish and give other fishermen fishes but his households stil lack fishes.
