Zuckerberg, who earlier in the week left Lagos for Kenya came back to attend Aso Villa Demo Day, a programme organized to pick winners of innovative ideas in start-up businesses at the old Banquet Hall of the presidential villa and meet President Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja.

Speaking at the occasion, President Buhari and the vice-president Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, a Muslim and Christian devotees respectively, praised Zuckerberg, a sworn atheist for his simple appearance and his penchant for sharing his wealth and knowledge, attributes which they said are uncommon among the elite in Nigeria.

“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. “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,” President Buhari said of Zuckerberg.

Nigeria is divided between Christianity and Islam but is perceived to be the most corrupt among 60 countries evaluated, according to data from the 2016 Best Countries ranking.
