This study on the other hand will bring out a clearer picture of the population dynamics in Africa especially for the population growth rate which has been a crucial factor and also a major challenge in the proper planning and budgeting for the well-being of the citizenry. Four growth models are employed namely; arithmetic geometric, exponential and logistic models. Results obtained showed some interesting features.
