Bright Ekweremadu said over 1.8billion sexual activities occur in Nigeria yearly, and 80% of them are unprotected.

He also said if Nigerian men were to use condoms, no supplier in the world would be able to afford the quantity of condoms Nigerian men would need and went further to say their research showed that young Nigerians between 18 and 34 years in the cities of Lagos & Abuja make the highest use of condoms.

He said many sexually active Nigerian men have several excuses for not wanting to use condoms. Excuses like “I am healthy, I don’t have infections, flesh to flesh is sweeter” etc.

He said there are so many cases of sexually transmitted diseases and unwanted pregnancies reported yearly because of people’s refusal to use condoms. He also said their research shows that the women don’t insist on condoms.
