Bishop David Oyedepo, Chancellor, Landmark University, Omu-Aran, Kwara, has called for urgent steps to check students’ free access to social media to enable them to focus on the pursuit of their destinies.
Oyedepo, who spoke on Friday during the 2019/2020 convocation ceremony in the school, insisted that social media has continued to destroy the destiny of youths.
He was speaking on: “Combating the challenge of education without integration.’’
According to him, social media, which was expected to add value to the youths, has proven otherwise, saying it has already become a major minus.
Oyedepo, who is the founder of General Overseer of Living Faith Church Worldwide, noted that the media had done more havoc because “everything of value delivers through the investment of time.”
“We must devise a means to put a check on free access to social media, particularly those that are not adding value,’’ he insisted.
