Katsina State Government has ordered all schools principals to delete WhatsApp groups used by teachers in the state’s public schools.
A letter signed by Muhammad Sada Dikko on behalf of Zonal Coordinator of the state Ministry of Education blamed the social media groups for encouraging insubordination in the schools.
“I am directed to write and inform all the principals to direct the various Group Admin in their respective schools to wipe out the so called school WhatsApp.
“The abolishing of this group becomes necessary due to various postings being made which create problems and insubordination between the school authority and the staff,
“Principals should also remind their staffs about the Government Circular that prohibit any civil servant from commenting positively or negatively Government activities in Facebook or WhatsApp,” the letter reads.
