The Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Saad Abubakar III, is not happy about the fact that Nigerian youths spend most of their time on social media.
According to the Sultan, Facebook, Instagram and other social media apps have the attention of students in the country.
“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.
