The Archbishop, Province of the Niger and Bishop of Awka Diocese, Most Rev Alexander Chibuzo Ibezim has blamed the deteriorating lifestyle among young girls in Nigeria on their activities on social media.
Ibezim said social media has had a more negative impact on the life of the Nigerian youth, especially young girls, who he said engage in various negative activities to the detriment of their morals.
The Archbishop was speaking in an event organized to mark the 2021 Mothers Day at the Cathedral Church of St. Faith, Awka. He called on mothers to seek a spiritual solution by praying for the young generation of children.
“Mothers must monitor the movement of their children through prayers. Most mothers do not know the whereabouts and activities of their children, especially on social media. This is because the new telecommunication gadgets are alien to most parents.
“Most girls connect to so many bad friends through social media including dating men outside the country only to portray Godly life to their parents to deceive them. I urge parents to embrace prayers as the only remedy to salvage the generation in the technology-driven world.”
He urged Mothers to understand their roles in the family, saying that some women in the family mislead their husbands into involving themselves in wrongful acts, reminiscent of Safira and Ananias in the bible
