Abolishment Of School WhatsApp Groups Only For A Particular Zone - Katsina State Govt

The Katsina State Government says it has not banned the use of WhatsApp and other social media platforms by staff of secondary schools in the state, IgbereTV reports.

A widely circulated memo had informed principals to direct the closure of school WhatsApp groups.

However, a statement issued on Wednesday, December 9, by the office of the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on New Media said the memo was in respect of a particular zone of the Ministry of Education.

"The attention of the state government has been drawn to a widely circulated memo, especially on the Social Media, banning the use of WhatsApp groups by staff of secondary schools," the statement reads.

"The memo in reference was in respect of a particular zone of the Ministry of Education and was aimed at addressing some administrative infringements.

"However, the state ministry of education has issued a clarification on the said memo in circulation.

"On its part, the state government under the able leadership of Governor Aminu Bello Masari has, at no time, bans or restricts the use of any Social Media platform by anybody or group as that will amount to trampling on the fundamental rights of the people." the statement added.

In the clarification, the State Ministry of Education said the abolishment of WhatsApp groups in that particular zone is miscontrued.

"It is aimed to curtail insurbodination between school authority and staffers. However, we wish to make it emphatically clear that staff will be held responsible for whatever he or she writes on social media platforms." the letter reads.

Social media is Haram or are we gonna pretend we don't know? Let them reach the zones of Yennefer and bossstrevor1. I expect not to see their comments forevermore starting next week.

Meanwhile :

When 'One-Nigerians' are ready, they should let me know which of the following is their president


If Buhari is still alive, then I'm the one who's dead.

The man don cast. Malami and co. keep hiding that playboy president from the public. The world now knows. Please drag that impostor out of Assshole Rock to come make a public speech. Will the whole country have to melt before he makes a public address?

Obviously a hastily made up response to the backlash from that silly, thoughtless memo.
If it was originally meant for a particular zone as claimed, why didn't they include the name of the zone in the first memo, to make it clear?

The north represents everything shitty, silly and backwards.
There is no society that progressed by gagging it's citizens. There are countless countries where government tried to cage it's people from expressing their views. Ultimately, thosr countries witnessed upheavals and surge in rebellion.
North won't learn. Can't learn. They are incapable of learning. Which is why they believed removing history lessons from schools would be a great move. Same history that would have guided the future.

Thought as much.
In a country like Nigeria it is advisable to wait at least 24 hours before reacting to any News in other not to sound imature or stupid.

I’m rather relieved that they didn’t recommend death by hanging sef. There’s a reason why oyinbo pipo invented the word 'extremists', I no wan talk pass like that. But how dem wan take enforce this 'executive decree' na, will dey order their hisbah to check staff phones every morning? Maybe next time they’re rolling for H.I.T on some beer crates, they’ll take a little detour down that zone and check out some people’s phones. This people must really want SARS badly! grin

This is a lame, divisionary tactics that seeks to distract the attention of the people from the horrors of insecurity and economic hardships the state faces. It is also a fact that political leaders -- and their counterparts in the administrative realm -- in Nigeria have no solution to the myriad challenges the citizens grapple with.

This theatric is similar to "Notofication" banning the use of 'Black Friday" by kano's hisbah in the state. No clime will survive this kind of shameless fiddling, especially a country riddled with existential problems.

The North cannot catch up with the south. What happened in 1953 when Anthony Enahoro raised a motion for self government in 1956 - Ahmadu Hello rephrased it to as soon as practicable.........Trying to buy time so they can meet up with the speed of the Southerners.
Unfortunately, their religion would never allow them to meet up with the south.
