Use of WhatsApp for information dissemination has been banned in public schools in Katsina State.

Use of WhatsApp for information dissemination has been banned in public schools in Katsina State.

Principals were accordingly ordered to abide by the directive dated December 7, 2020 and signed by one Muhammad Sada Dikko.

The fresh order followed an earlier correspondence forbidding civil servants from using same platform and Facebook to comment on government activities.

The current circular read: “I am directed to write and inform all the principals to direct the various group admins 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 problem 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.”
