A section of Ghanaians have reacted to the call on government by the Pro Vice-Chancellor of the University of Cape Coast (UCC) to ban access to WhatsApp during working hours.
Speaking to Ghanaweb TV, some citizens were of the view that there should be a moderation in relation to the use of WhatsApp during working hours, instead of utterly banning its use at work.
Others who supported the UCC Provost’s suggestion believe that restricting workers from using WhatsApp whiles working is a step in the right direction.
According to Prof. George Oduro, the use of Whatsapp during working hours is a major form of distraction, which negatively affects productivity.
He argued that it will be difficult for the nation to benefit from equitable investments, especially in education, when workers waste working hours on social media.
The UCC Provost also said banning WhatsApp at work will promote productivity at workplaces.
