The national population commission(NPC) has advised security agencies on need to have in-depth knowledge of the nations population dynamics to addressing the present challenges.

Director of the commission,Jamin Dora Zubema gave this indication today when students of the defence intelligence school visited the NPC in abuja.

He said the population data will help to fashion out strategies and tactics for tackling the security challenges as well as facilitate evidence based playing on national security.

Raising concerns over 3.2% annual growth rate of the nations population,Dr Zubema said the trend if not controlled will increase the poverty level and also encourage intra-migration challenges largely responsible for several conflicts among kinsmen in nigeria.

Earlier,the leader of the delegation,Wolu Okwuwolu said the rationale for the visit is to enhance the knowledge of the participants on national security analysis as well as expose them on the activities of the commission as it affects national security.
