Mark Zuckerberg in NigeriaFacebook’s Founder and one of the world’s billionaires, Mark Zuckerberg is currently in Nigeria!

The tech entrepreneur is currently at Co-Creation Hub (CcHub) in Yaba.

The 32-year-old billionaire’s visit was unannounced.

According to Tech Cabal:

There’s been a lot of Facebook-related development in Nigeria so there’s a ton of reasons why Mark may be visiting. First, Free Basics launched in Nigeria and Mark showed his support for the Jobberman team. Then the Chan-Zuckerberg Initiative invested $24 million in Andela. Also, Facebook’s developer workshop is happening tomorrow, and Facebook is partnering with Cool Link to launch Express Wifi in Lagos some time this week.

      ooooooooooo!!!!!! please go to setting>>>>>Account>>>>>>turn off the ”share my account info”….. simple….Besides, Facebook (what’s app & Instagram) respect peoples privacy and they have given every user the power to control or terminate their social network account.. Do a simple research please and always read the terms and condition of any social network before signing up…

      His wiki page says he’s atheist. Many multimillionaire jews are non-practising in terms of Judaism. Many made their money from gambling casinos, pornography, and commercial banking. I know commercial banking sounds like the lesser evil, but essentially unregulated commercial banking borought about the financial crisis.

      Think Lehman brothers, think Bernard Madoff, think Sir Philip Green. These are all Jewish men who buy businesses via LBO’s with printed papers (that is not real money from the US fed reserve bank….. Too much words to explain this jare, just google how the Fed reserve bank works), then strip the real assets of the business, I.e, the pensions, buildings etc, then declare bankruptcy and never pay back that initial loan- usually in hundreds of millions of dollars.
      Very few Jewish people innovate or create anything, think of Facebook etc. Some one creates something and adds his Jewish Friend bcos they need the cash and the banks own the cash and the jews own the banks.
      It may surprise many that the Fed reserve bank in the US is owned by a Jewish family not the US government. Bank of England is very much owned by jews, just google the Rothschild, etc.

      The jew is mainly after 2 things. Media for information control and the banks.

      That said, there are jews who have built major businesses from scratch e.g, Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, etc but even they have sold to the jews who own the banks.

      This is why white folks don’t like jews, In my head I laugh. It’s like- White folks colonized the world and grab as much as they can, then jews colonize White folks through banking and buy it all off them.

    Free Basics- which gives free access to the internet for poor nations was rejected in India when Zuckerbergs intentions was discovered. It allows content that only Zuckerberg and by extension the US government controls. You will not be able to access anything else besides what Zuckerberg and the US wants you to. In India, they believed that because over 100 million of their citizens are too poor to pay for the internet, they will rely on Free Basics for all their info. Indirectly, the US can programme the minds of an entire generation straight out of Washington. It was a long battle for the tech experts in India, but they were eventually able to convince their perliament and Zuckerbergs Free Basics was kicked out of India. Zuckerberg fought tooth and nail but the Indians stood their ground.

    It is a very lengthy read but I will look for the link and send it to some of the major news papers and paste it here.

    Free Basics is a greek gift, like India, Nigeria must reject it.

      Thanks a lot for highlighting the fraud that “free basics” is. Together with recent mining activities in Congo by a Canadian-funded company, Free basics goes to show how deeply embedded neo-colonialism still is in Africa.
      The fact that this has been allowed to happen in Nigeria without any scrutiny can only be explained to mean that either our leaders are lacking in knowledge on matters to do with net neutrality and other internet rights and principles. or they are fully aware and have chosen to look the other way; which is just as bad.

    • Thank you Lala

      Mark is a business man and I have no doubt that he’s here for that, business!. Their goal is to gain more than 80% of active-internet users on Facebook . Facebook is no longer just a social network, its an advertising platform! I see sponsored ads every second I scroll my FB page. The more subscribers, the larger platform for ads. So all of you talking about philanthropy, please na today? you think he flew all the way for philanthropy? That word is just a façade for a new biz venture. its his business and its OK as long as there’s NO neo-colonialism involved, and they are heavily taxed, then we have no cause to worry. That was how they introduced free internet to India with conditions of controlling which sites they can access which includes Facebook of course! But India wasn’t in for that definition of philanthropy. It’s all about maximizing profits.

      I’m wondering just what exactly you mean by ‘programming the minds of an entire generation’. Sounds scary…like, just by using the internet the entire generation can be turned to zombies or som’n. too simplistic, I guess…

    I have read the thread, my take on this as a programmer is maybe mark is here to rip us off or not. But since he will be dealing with mostly tech mind in this country. I don’t think Nigeria’s tech guys are fool. We would know and there would be words about Mark true intention in Nigeria.
