Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg wrapped up his visit to Kenya yesterday and is now back in Nigeria visiting with President Buhari.
“Last stop of my trip: I’m in Abuja to meet Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.
We all met with entrepreneurs as part of Demo Day, an initiative for the Nigerian government to fund entrepreneurs with ideas for improving the country,” said Zuckerberg in a post earlier today on his Facebook page.
“We heard from engineers who are finding ways to reward people for recycling, designing ways to pick up trash easier, and using shuttles to improve commutes in Lagos.
This has been an inspiring trip. The energy and entrepreneurship in Nigeria and Kenya is amazing. I can’t wait to come back again soon!”
Zuckerberg arrived in Nigeria three days ago. He visited the technology hub in Yaba, had a Q&A session with entrepreneurs and developers, left for Kenya yesterday and returned today to Nigeria.
