Facebook's Founder/CEO 'Mark Zuckerberg' Live in Nigeria

Tuesday, August 30, 2016

Facebook founder and the 7th richest man on the planet, Mark Zuckerberg is currently in Nigeria.
Lots of people in the Tech line in Nigeria are as stunned as myself. When did this happen and why didn't anyone tell me anything?
They sure managed to keep his itinerary private.
This will be his first trip to sub-Saharan Africa. And according to him,  he will be meeting with developers, entrepreneurs, and learning about the startup ecosystem in Nigeria.
In his words "The energy here is amazing and I'm excited to learn as much as I can"
His first stop is the Co-creation Hub Nigeria (CcHUB) in Yaba, Lagos where he got to talk to kids at a summer coding camp and entrepreneurs who come to CcHub to build and launch their apps.
Also in his words "I'm looking forward to meeting more people here!"
There are speculations that the billionaire Facebook founder is currently in Nigeria to visit Jobberman (which  he showed support for a few months ago), check out the Andela team (which he invested $24 million in recently), launch ExpressWiFi (an affordable WiFi project) and participate in the Facebook developer day which is happening tomorrow.
