Abstract: The problem of overpopulation is of serious concern and dire consequence to any nation. In Nigeria, rapid population growth stretches the social services beyond its design-capacity, which then renders them ineffectual to the general population. Other impacts are noted in virtually all sectors of the nation’s economy including Education, water resources, Health industry, Agriculture. These impacts ae mostly disadvantageous to individuals and nation at large. This paper discussed the concept on overpopulation. It also gave a general discussion on the causes, effects and strategies for controlling overpopulation. The paper concludes with the believe that most people have large families because they were not educated on responsible parenthood and healthy family life. Suggestion were finally made urging the government to be more sensitive to the problems of overpopulation in our communities.
