Imo state tops the chart for the use of condoms, according to Maureen Zubie-Okolo, a monitoring and evaluation specialist with United Nation Children’s Fund (UNICEF).

Speaking at Enugu, Zubie Okolo said this when she unveiled the Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey to newsmen.

According to the report, among the South East states, Imo has the highest figure which is 75.9%.

Imo is closely followed by Anambra who has 66.0% and 57.6% for Enugu while Abia and Ebonyi states are the states with the least amount of condom usage, with Abia having 53.5% and Ebonyi having 27.5%.

The official explained that Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey was carried out in 2016/2017 by the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) in collaboration with UNICEF and it is used to assist the government in policy formulation.
