While receiving Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg, at his office today, President Buhari commended him for his simplicity and informed him that in our culture, we are not used to seeing successful people appear the way he does. 

"I am impressed by your simplicity in sharing your knowledge and wealth with those with less income. 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’’ he said.

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.
