Osun govt. bans use of cell phones in public secondary schools

Osun state governor, Rauf Aregbesola

The Osun Government on Wednesday banned the use of cell phones and motorcycles by students in public secondary schools across the state.

The state’s Deputy Governor, Titilayo Laoye-Tomori, gave the order in Osogbo during the Education Stakeholders Meeting with representatives from five local government areas.

Laoye-Tomori said the ban became imperative in order to instill discipline in the state’s public secondary schools.

She decried the poor performance of the students during internal and external examinations, saying the results did not reflect the huge spending in educational reforms.

The deputy governor then urged communities to set up committees that would monitor activities of students in schools in their localities as means of checkmating them.

She said, “due to the unruly behaviour of some students, any student caught with cell phone, charms or dangerous objects would be expelled from school”. (NAN)

    This kind of measure is commendable, and should be encouraged in other states especially Rivers State where school children are being caught regularly watching porn on their cell phones during school hours.
