Students Warned Against The Use Of Mobile Phones While Walking

Lokhanda, a nonprofit global personal safety organization specialized in revolutionary self-defense and child protection-related services, has cautioned students against texting, listening to music and talking on the phone while walking.

The founder of Lokhanda, Mr Lord Kwadjo Andoh has warned students against these habits that have exacerbated in the advent of social media, explaining that not only do these habits distract your attention, but people who answer calls, text or listen to music while walking put their lives at risk.

Speaking at the maiden edition of Women Empowerment Programme organized by the Students' Representative Council (SRC) Women Commission of the Ghana Technology University College (GTUC) on Self-defense, Mr Andoh stated that the first step to self-defense is Avoidance. He emphasized on a verse in the Bible which states that 'the prudent sees danger and hides himself, but the simple go on and suffer for it'- Proverbs 27:12. He said, it is everyone's duty to 'avoid any situation that can get you into trouble'.
