The Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Saad Abubakar III, is not happy that Nigerian youths are always on social media. According to him, Facebook, Instagram and other social apps are diverting the attention of students in the country.
There is a disturbing development where the attention of students is being diverted from their studies.
“This is through the use of various social media like Facebook, Twitter,Whatsapp, 2Go and Instagram, among others,’’ he said.
“The rate at which girls are spending time on social network is worrisome and this poses imminent danger to our society.
“Girls are the nerve centre of our moral and societal development and if they derail, the whole society will be in danger because they are our mothers and care givers.”
Instead, parents should ensure that their daughters spend more time on meaningful things, like reciting the Holy Qur’an, he said.
