Founder and CEO of the Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg arrived Nigeria earlier today. His first destination was none other than the CoCreation Hub, Yaba, Lagos.
His visit here is to meet with the tech giants in Nigeria and discuss how tech development and entrepreneurship can benefit from his platform.
Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, met with Pope Francis at The Vatican on Monday where they held a question and answer session and talked about his future plans for the world before doing some sightseeing and setting their sights to Lagos unannounced.
“Next stop: Lagos! This is my first trip to sub-Saharan Africa. I'll be meeting with developers and entrepreneurs, and learning about the startup ecosystem in Nigeria. The energy here is amazing and I'm excited to learn as much as I can.
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. I'm looking forward to meeting more people here!”
Having only recently invested in Andela, Mark is eager to see just how much Nigeria has to offer the world and indeed, we are all happy to have him here.
