The CEO of Facebook has arrived in Nigeria this afternoon and he is meeting with a few people from the Nigerian tech sector. His visit was in an effort to understand how Facebook could “better support tech development and entrepreneurship across Africa,” the company said in a statement.
His visit included a trip to Yaba, known as the Silicon Valley of Nigeria, where he toured a coding camp for kids and met with about 50 local startup founders and developers at CcHub, a local innovation center. Zuckerberg in an interview said: “There’s so much energy and so much potential here. I just want to walk around and meet folks.”
Zuckerberg was earlier in Rome with his wife Priscilla to see the Pope and also to have a question and answer section.
