Youth Advised To Use The Internet Profitably – Ga Chief


The Paramount Chief of Sowutuom has advised the youth to activate all relevant safety precautions when using the internet to avoid breaching protocols on internet safety.


He noted that some of the identified risks associated with internet usage include exposure to child pornography, cyberbullying, malicious information gathering, romance fraud, and mobile money fraud, among others.

Speaking in an interview with on the sideline of the Eid-ul-Adha in Accra, Nii Osabu Akwei I, who also serves as the Development Chief of the Ga State, also urged the youth to go beyond using the internet for social media purposes only.

He said the internet is a good tool for acquiring knowledge, research, and promoting development, however, most people in Ghana have resorted to using it mainly for social media-related activities only. This according to him is not making the country derive the needed benefits from internet usage.

Nii Osabu Akwei I, advised Ghanaian youth especially Muslims to desist from political violence and rather seek opportunities to get employment to make a living.

According to him, the basic tenets of Islam are obedience to God, love, and compassion for one’s neighbour and that should be the guiding principles for the Islamic youth.

Nii Osabu Akwei I, described as unacceptable and un-Islamic the situation where some people hide behind the Islamic religion to perpetrate all forms of violence against humanity under the guise of fighting for the course of the Islamic religion.

He, therefore, warned that any Muslim who will associate himself with any such group of bandits to perpetrate any acts of violence would be disowned and handed over to the security agencies when caught.

Nii Osabu Akwei I, urged the people of Accra to celebrate this year’s Homowo in peace saying; that the city of Accra had enjoyed peace over the years and would want to celebrate this year’s Homowo devoid of any public disturbances.

“We have witnessed peace and tranquility over the years and we are just reminding our chiefs and elders as well as citizens that we want to continue to enjoy that peace. We also want to caution any group that also intends to bring trouble that the police is on the alert to take action on any group of persons or individuals who intend to bring trouble,” he said.
