The Benue State Governor Samuel Ortom on Tuesday urged parents to always monitor the online activities of their children.
Ortom, while addressing Benue women at an interactive session in Makurdi said, “Information is power; it can make or mar any society or its administration. Parents must always be on the watch.”
The governor advised that there are many negative posts on the cyberspace and they spur negative actions; parents must be more observant and be determined to protect their children.
The Commissioner of Women Affairs and Social Development, Mrs. Ladi Ajene-Ishegbe while giving her remarks said that the session was a platform for women to interact with government for first-hand information on government activities.
Ajene-Ishegbe appealed to Benue women to monitor children against social vices and violence, stating that women were usually the worst victims of crises.
