“There are obviously sexually active Nigerians who may not totally abstain from sex and this led to our alternative, particularly at this time when HIV/AIDs is prevalent in the country.

“What we are doing now is expanding choices for the sexually active Nigerians who are using condoms.”

“So we have varieties of condoms with different features to make sex worth it, for those who will use the condom,” he said emphasising that his organisation was “not promoting sex.”
