BUHARI COMMENDS ZUCKERBERG FOR INSPIRING YOUTHS INTO ENTREPRENEURSHIP

President Muhammadu Buhari has commended the Chief Executive Officer and Co-founder of social networking website, Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, for sharing his wealth of knowledge with Nigerian youths, and inspiring a new generation of entrepreneurs.

The commendation is contained in a statement issued in Abuja on Friday by Mr Femi Adesina, the President’s Specia

The president also commended Zuckerberg for sharing his wealth of knowledge with Nigerian youths, and inspiring a new generation of entrepreneurs.

Buhari said this while receiving the Facebook chief at the state house on Friday.

“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,”  he said in a statement issued by Femi Adesina, presidential spokesman.

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

Buhari said that the simplicity and magnanimity of the entrepreneur, the world’s 6th richest man as of August 2016, had also challenged the culture of lavish wealth display and impulsive spending that had become peculiar to Nigerians.

The founder of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg visits the Presidential Villa, Abuja and meets with President Buhari and VP Prof. Yemi Osinbajo.

“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,” he said.

“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.”

In his remarks, Zuckerberg said he was impressed by the interest, energy and entrepreneurial spirit displayed by young Nigerians in all the ICT camps that he had visited.

“I was highly impressed by the talent of the youths in the Co-creation Hub in Yaba. I was blown away by their talent and the level of energy that I saw,’’ he said.

Zuckerberg said he was in the country to promote the penetration of “fast and cheap” internet connectivity, express-wifi that would help people create online businesses and reduce poverty.
