The Eastern Regional Director for the national commission for civic Education (NCCE), Madam Ophelia Ankrah, urged the youth of Ghana to use social media wisely since it serves as a medium to create, sell, share and spread information worldwide.
She emphasized that social media is here to stay, so students should use it to conduct research in areas such as education, skill acquisition, and general knowledge.
This was stated by Madam Ophelia Ankrah on Saturday during the annual maiden civic programme dubbed ‘Civocation’ at the Presbyterian senior high school in Aburi.
The NCC Director began by defining social media as a website and an application that allows users to participate in social networking.
She advised them to socialize better by selling their products online to make money rather than using the platform for negative things like posting nude pictures and engaging in behaviour that would give them a bad reputation in the future.
The NCCE regional director advised students to talk to counsellors and parents about Cyberbullying rather than hurting themselves.
She emphasized once more that students should avoid pornographic videos and materials that could jeopardize their future.
Mr. Alex Owusu Akyaw, Akuapim _South Director of NCCE, expressed his heartfelt gratitude to the school’s administration for making this educational program possible and urged students to focus on their studies and be responsible for the future and national development.
