Mark Zuckerberg back in Nigeria

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg is full of surprises. Barely 48hrs after his exit from Nigeria to Kenya, Mark Zuckerberg is in Nigeria for the Aso Villa Demo Day finals in Abuja where he will be one of the judges.

Pictured with him is Vice President Osinbajo.Aso Villa Demo Day is a programme that aims to promote entrepreneurship, innovation and economic growth through new and emerging technology.

Mark Zuckerberg earlier visited the Presidential Villa, Abuja and met with President Buhari and VP Prof. Yemi Osinbajo donning a sharp looking suit.

When VP Osinbajo asked him Mark why he wasn't wearing his 'traditional' t-shirt &jeans, he said it was out of respect for the formality of meeting a President.

See below photos of Mark taking selfies with President Buhari and VP Osinbajo after their Abuja meeting. 

The 30 startups that were initially selected to pitch at Aso Villa Demo Day will have the opportunity to meet with Mark Zuckerberg at the event.
