SOCIAL MEDIA: Katsina Government Clamp Down On Usage

Katsina State Government begins a clampdown on use of social media in schools and among the civil servants.

The state Ministry of Education in a circular, ‘MOE/ZDKT/ADG/VOL.1’, obtained  from the Zonal Education Quality Assurance of the Katsina State Ministry of Education and was sent to all heads and principals of public schools in the state, has ordered principals of government schools to abolish all existing Whatsapp groups in their respective schools.

The circular, dated December 7 and titled, “Abolishing of Whatsapp group in our schools” was signed by one Muhammad Sada Dikko, for the Zonal Coordinator

Also, government workers using facebook have been asked to avoid the use of the social media platform to comment on government activities, either positively or negatively.

It reads, “I am directed to write and inform all the principals to direct the various Group Admin in their respective schools to wipe out the so-called school Whatsapp. The abolishing of this group becomes necessary due to the multiple postings being made, which create problems and insubordination between the school authority and its staff.

“Principals should also remind their staff about the government circular that prohibits any civil servant from commenting positively or negatively on government activities on Facebook or Whatsapp.”
