Findings revealed that Nigeria Radio stations are doing enough in its programming to help the community deal with teenage pregnancies. Nigeria Radio stations emphasized more in its teenage pregnancies programmes to the community and Nigeria Radio stations set the agenda for what the community should think and talk about on the issues of teenage pregnancies.

This is because the teen- age mothers attend school irregularly and some- times drop out of school. Teenage pregnancy is a social as well as an economic issue as it portends low education and employment, high rate of poverty and the psycho-social stigma it carries more so when it is out of wedlock.

The study among others recommends that teenage programmes should be tailored to the needs of individual communities and includes health promotion information and advice, especially on risk taking behavior. Parents should not be too harsh on teenagers but they should be approachable so as the children can confide in them whenever there is a pressure from peers. Parents should not be too harsh on teenagers but they should be approachable so as the children can confide in them whenever there is a pressure from peers.
