Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg was in Abuja today for “Aso Villa Demo Day” after the billionaire left the country a day ago to visit Kenya. Nigerian president Muhammadu Buhari commended Mark for his simplicity during the programme aimed at bringing Nigerian  entrepreneurs closer to the Federal Government and allowing them submit their ideas for the economic, agricultural and technological growth of the country.

Buhari said:

“Nigeria has always been identified as a country with great potentials for growth, especially with our youthful population, but now we are moving beyond the potentials to reality.

“I am impressed by your simplicity in sharing your knowledge and wealth with those with less income.

“In our culture, we are not used to seeing successful people appear like you. We are not used to seeing successful people jogging and sweating on the streets.

“We are more used to seeing successful people in air-conditioned places. We are happy you are well-off and simple enough to always share.”

Zuckerberg presented Buhari a drone similar to the one he gave Pope Francis few days ago.
