The Nigerian twittershpere has been agog with this ‘surprise’ visit of Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg’s visit to Nigeria. I was surprised too to say the least.

I decided to follow the thread, but I was disappointed in the responses I got. As in! I WAS DISAPPOINTED but maybe it’s just me or I am taking the replies too seriously
The replies ranged from asking for money, him adopting them, taking them with him back home, even to hacking their ex’s Facebook account * like seriously? * Majority were asking for money though!
There were some nice replies too sha
@coolfmnigeria Thanks for bring families, friends and foes together under one platform! The world becomes smaller because of U

We then shifted our focus to him eating jollof rice and saying which is better, his not moving around with sirens and security details *he is not a political appointee and who told you no security yimu*. And then CNN made the blunder of saying ‘Sub-Saharan Africa’ instead of Nigeria. I was in on this too, but the way we marched P on this though!
I liked the submission of these two
I think people should capitalise on the true essence of Mark Zuckerberg’s visit rather than dwell on minor issues like sub-sahara.
