In a statement issued in Abuja on Friday by Mr. Femi Adesina, the President’s Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, President Muhammadu Buhari 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.
Buhari made the commendation when he received the Internet entrepreneur at the State House.
He said that President Buhari told Zuckerberg that the various meetings he held with Nigerian youths since his arrival were
timely, as the country was already exploring opportunities to spur development through entrepreneurship.
Buhari said “Nigeria has always been identified as a country with great potential for growth, especially with our youth population, but now we are moving beyond the potential to reality.
“I am impressed by your simplicity in sharing your knowledge and wealth with those with less income,’’ he said.
According to him, the simplicity and magnanimity of the entrepreneur, who is among the world’s richest men, has also challenged the culture of lavish wealth display and impulsive spending that has become peculiar to Nigerians.
He said “we are not used to seeing successful people appear like you; we are not used to seeing successful people jogging and sweating.Screenshot_20160903-051122~2
