'The rate at which girls spend time on social media is worrisome' - Sultan of Sokoto

Sultan Of Sokoto, Alhaji Saad Abubakar III while speaking at the closing ceremony of the 6th National Edition of the Quranic Recitation Competition expressed concern at how social media is diverting the attention of students in the country, especially girls. In his words;
'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.
The rate at which girls are spending time on social network is worrisome and this poses imminent danger to our society'.  
He continues to say,
“girls are the nerve center 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.” 
Abubakar advised parents to ensure that their daughters spend more time on meaningful things, like reciting the Holy Qur’an, ”doing so will make them better mothers and care givers’’ he said..

    Dumb talk.,, he is meant to say the way girls and boys not just girls. How about the boys reciting their books?
    They are scared girls will have a clear say if what they want and can't be cheated. What about the boys and morals?
