Some information and Communication  (ICT) experts have warn that addition to the of cell phones has socio-cultural and economic consequences.The experts told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in separate interviews in Abuja that cell phone addiction was affecting social relationships and perforating the pockets of users.

 

But they noted that clutching on cell phones to undertake some activities online is a trending occurrence since the advent of cellular phones.

Although, public analysts observe that this trend, which they describe as addiction, has some consequences on the users but some people say it is a normal occurrence to move on with global information development.

Mr Babayo Damisa, the Managing Director of Damisah Creative Agency, an ICT company, said “getting addicted to phones is a global challenge which is hard to combat”. Damisa said most youths are addicted to their phones, either being on social media or playing games, which might not be educational.He said viewing education programmes on phones was a positive one, but majority of youths were either wasting their time on social media discussing things that were not relevant to their development.
