WhatsApp, BBM making students to fail English Language in Nigeria a�� Post-Master General

Nigeriaa��s Post-Master General, Adebisi Adegbuyi has said that a lot of students in the country fail English Language because of the usage of social media.

He was speaking during the presentation of award to winners of the 2016 Letter Writing Competitions, organized in Plateau.

Adegbuyi stated that students were used to communicating with short codes on their phones and it had become a part of them.

a�?It is worrisome that students cannot spell words correctly; they are more used to short codes and symbols they use in sending Short Message Service (SMS) on their mobile phones,a�? Adegbuyi said.

He added: a�?The students send messages through social media platforms like the WhatsApp, BBM, and SMS using short-codes and symbols; when they are faced with spelling the full word, they find it very difficult.a�?

Adegbuyi was represented by Omo Emmanuel, the Assistant Post-Master General (Marketing).

He also advised the students to continually write letters and improve their grammar.
