Oyedepo To Youths: Excessive Use Of Social Media Destroys Your Destiny


David Oyedepo, founder of the Living Faith Church Worldwide, says the excessive use of social media is robbing the youths of their future.

According to NAN, the clergyman, who is the chancellor of Covenant University, advised the youths against social media addiction on Friday during the 15th convocation ceremony of the institution in Ota, Ogun state.

The chancellor said the negative impact of social media has made many lose focus and rob them of their destiny.

“The social media saga has eroded the substance of destiny as it has unconsciously robbed youths of their future and their time. The honour of this generation has been wiped off,” he said.

“Chatting all day with no time left to think, plan programme and engage productively in the pursuit of any task. Some professionals have classified social media addiction along with drugs, alcohol and sex.

“Social media that is supposed to be a plus to the youth, suddenly became a minus, as everything of value is delivered through the investment of time.”

Oyedepo also advised the youths to get out of their nest by engaging in strategic planning towards being responsible for the outcome of their lives.

“No one ever arrives at a future he cannot see, neither does anyone arrive at a future he is not prepared for. It is time for every youth to wake up from slumber and take his/her destiny in their hands,” the chancellor added.

Also speaking at the event, Abiodun Adebayo, the vice-chancellor of the institution, said the university is committed to training expert thinkers that would proffer solutions to Nigeria’s problems and restore the lost glory of black people.

He said the institution was keeping its students busy with activities that will prepare them for leadership and productive dialogue as well as equipping them with skills to change their world.
