Zuckerberg visited Kenya yesterday after he left Nigeria and took to his Facebook page writing, “I had lunch in Nairobi with Joseph Mucheru, the Kenyan Cabinet Secretary of Information and Communications. We talked about internet access and his ambitious plans for connecting everyone in Kenya.”
As many thought that the techprenuer will depart from the country to America, he surprisingly returned to Nigeria, and paid a visit to the number one citizen where he was pictured taking selfies with government officials at the presidential villa.
According to reports, Zuckerberg will be one of the judges at the finals of ‘Aso Villa Demo Day’, taking place at Abuja today.
Aso Villa Demo Day is a programme that aims to promote entrepreneurship, innovation and economic growth through new and emerging technology.
When VP Osinbajo asked him why he wasn’t wearing his ‘traditional’ T-shirt and jeans, he reportedly said it was out of respect for the formality of meeting a president.
