Chike Nwangwu, NOIPolls CEO, said religion and a partner’s refusal were the common reasons for the non-use of condoms.

The group’s statement revealed that “of the 66 percent of the general population that stated that they do not use condom, the main reason cited by 34 percent was that it is against their religious belief.”

Nwangwu told the BBC that “With regards to perception and attitude on condom, 63% of Nigerians stated that the first thing that comes to their mind when they hear the word condom is sexual pleasure, while 45% disclosed that they instantly think of promiscuity when they see someone with a condom”.
