Zuckerberg subsequently announced his arrival through his Facebook page, where he stated that he was in the country to learn about the startup ecosystem.

He said: “I am 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”, Zuckerberg added.
