Facebook Founder Mark Zuckerberg Is In Lagos Nigeria [PHOTOS]

Tuesday, August 30, 2016


Billionaire founder of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg is in Nigeria and this is the first time Mark is visiting Africa 

He arrived this afternoon and is currently at Co-creation Hub Yaba, Lagos

Mark was in Rome with his wife, Priscilla, until a few hours ago (according to his Facebook page). He held a Q&A session, visited the Pope and did a few “touristy” things. This visit to Nigeria wasn’t announced so you’ll permit if I go off into speculation. ...Maybe cos of Kidnappers and Boko Haram Lol....




There’s been a lot of Facebook-related development in Nigeria so there’s a ton of reasons why Mark may be visiting. First, Free Basics launched in Nigeria and Mark showed his support for the Jobberman team. Then the Chan-Zuckerberg Initiative invested $24 million in Andela. Facebook’s developer workshop is happening tomorrow, and Facebook is partnering with Cool Link to launch Express Wifi in Lagos some time this week.


I reckon Mark is in Nigeria to kill all these birds – visit Jobberman, the Andela team he’s invested in, attend the developer workshop, launch Express Wifi AND have policy-centred conversations with the Nigerian government to further Facebook’s cause.

You’ll know more when we know more.
