Popular Nigerian pastor, David Ibiyeomie, sent a direct messages to parents, asking them to wait till their children are in university before purchasing or giving them smart phones.
The founder of Salvation Ministries, Port Harcourt, stated this during a recent sermon in his church. According to him, phones expose these young ones to a lot of vices, so it’s important to protect them from these vices until they are old enough.
Instead of buying phones for their children, he suggested that parents should allow them to use their phones while being monitored, or that they get a land line and install it in the house.
“Don’t buy phone for any child who has not gone to the university. It may sound awkward because you’re civilized, but don’t do it… Don’t buy phone its not civilization. phones and tablets many things pop up… Let them use your phone, or buy land line and put in your parlor”, he said.
