Popular Nigerian pastor, Bishop David Oyedepo has come out to warn youths against the excessive use of social media. He recently revealed this during the 15th Convocation Ceremony and Conferment of Honourary Doctorate Degrees and presentation of prizes in Ota, Ogun.
According to him, the negative impact of social media on youths is very obvious, and it keeps distracting them from their destinies.
He added that it is sad to see how the honor of this generation has been erased all because of the dangers of the internet.
His words, “The social media saga has eroded the substance of destiny as it has unconsciously robbed youths of their future and their time.”
“The honour of this generation has been wiped off, chatting all day with no time left to think, plan programme and engage productively in the pursuit of any task.”
“Some professionals have classified social media addiction along with drugs, alcohol and sex.”
“Social media that is supposed to be a plus to the youth, suddenly became a minus, as everything of value is delivered through investment of time.”
