The Multibillionaire and owner of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg is currently in Nigeria. This would be his first visit to sub-saharan Africa and particularly Nigeria. He arrived on the 30th of August.
Mark Zuckerberg, a techpreneur, said on his verified facebook page that he decided to pay a visit to Nigeria to l
earn about the startup ecosystem. He made this statement while he visited Co-creation Hub Nigeria (CcHub), in Yaba, Lagos. CcHub is a technology incubator where even kids develop Apps for lunching. Probably, that was why he visited the place first.

“Our first stop is the Co-creation Hub Nigeria (CcHUB) in Yaba. I got to talk to kids at a summer coding camp and entrepreneurs who come to CcHub to build and launch their apps.”
Mark Zuckerberg who was dressed in a grey t-shirt, a blue jean and a Nike trainers, was captured on camera freely walking the streets of Yaba like a regular citizen. This made people to pick to their social media and start praising him for his simplicity and humility.
One of them even wishes that Mark Zuckerberg visits his town, Ado.
Zuckerberg was reportedly trekking to visit Andela, an engineering organisation that is building the next generation of technical leaders in Africa.
He also paid a visit to Express WiFi, a hub that distributes WiFi and thereby making WiFi available for use in the community. The founder, Rosemary Njoku, was so glad seeing him.
Another place Zuckerberg visited was the Nollywood Villa where he met with so many Nigeria stars.
