Stop Buying Phones For Your Children, They Spend Too Much Time On Facebook – Catholic Bishop Warns
The Catholic Bishop of Jalingo Diocese, Most Rev. Charles Hammawa has advised parents to stop buying smart phones for school children because of their negative effects on children.
Hammawa gave the advice on Monday at the graduation ceremony of Our Lady of Consolation Girl’s Secondary School, Jalingo.
He expressed concern at the alarming rate at which students were now using social media, describing the situation as impending disaster for the nation’s educational development.
