Sultan Of Sokoto Endorses Social Media Clamp Down

By Ikenga Chronicles February 6, 2017

It was shocking as the Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammed Saad Abubakar III over the weekend called on the clampdown of social media.

The sultan made this call while laying the foundation of the N508 million University of Ilorin Centre for Qur’an Memorisation, in Ilorin, Kwara State at the weekend.

Speaking at the ceremony, the Sultan, who was represented by the Emir of Shonga, Dr. Haliru Yahayah, admonished Nigerians, particularly parents, to be careful and to regulate the usage of social media by the youths, blaming
social media for most of the crises confronting the world.

“Let us be careful about the social media; we must regulate it and sanction at home,” the sultan said.

While noting that the social media should not be totally discarded, the royal father said, “We must develop strategies on how to manipulate that space to our advantage. Their reality is different from our reality.”

In a Juma’a sermon that preceded the launch, the chief imam of the university spoke on the rewards of donating to the cause of Allah.

“The cost of the project is to be funded solely by the Muslim community and not by the university,” he added.
