Why I didn't Wear T-shirt And Jean To Aso Villa - Mark Zuckerberg


However, it was a different looking Zuckerberg who was a
guest of President Muhammadu Buhari and his Vice on
Friday at the Aso Villa Demo Day.
"As you know Mark is a very informal person. I had asked him
earlier why he wasn’t wearing his T-shirt but he assured me
that that was just out of respect for the formality of coming to
see the President", Osinbajo said.
"But it is really exciting to have you here today with us, Mark.

"I think that one of the great things that you have demonstrated
is that it is possible to live your dreams; it is possible to make
your dreams not just coming true but coming true so fabulously
that you not only influence your environment but you influence
the whole world", the Vice President added.
The Aso Villa Demo Day seeks to encourage younger
Nigerians to innovate and invent through the use of
technology.
The Demo Day has been held in Lagos and Port Harcourt.
Friday's showpiece in Abuja was the grand finale.
See the full remarks of the Vice President below:
"Let me first say how truly excited we are to receive here today
Mark Zuckerberg, (and from now on I will only call him Mark as
everyone else does.)
"As you know Mark is a very informal person. I had asked him
earlier why he wasn’t wearing his T-shirt but he assured me
that that was just out of respect for the formality of coming to
see the President.
"But it is really exciting to have you here today with us, Mark. I
think that one of the great things that you have demonstrated is
that it is possible to live your dreams; it is possible to make
your dreams not just coming true but coming true so fabulously
that you not only influence your environment but you influence
the whole world.
"I had said earlier-(referring to earlier meetings today at the
Presidential Villa) that one of the things that you have done is
really to create connectivity across the world so that people are
really able to interact across tribe, across race and across
countries and feel as part of one family.
"This is really one of the great things that you have done and
your coming to Nigeria has been especially energising for not
just the young people but everyone else.
"As you could see, even the President is of course on
Facebook, and I am also on Facebook. So we are one of the 17
million. So this hasn’t just been exciting for the young people.
"Everyone who organised this Aso Villa Demo Day are young
people, all of them work for the government of Nigeria in one
capacity or the other, aside from the private sector who have
done such an excellent work and all of them are very young
people. I just want to thank you all for the excellent work you
have done putting this whole thing together.
"Let me also congratulate the winners. First the 30, I must say
that all 30 of you are winners in every sense but of the 30 there
are three who have shown themselves to be outstanding and
have been adjudged to be outstanding and I want to
congratulate you all on that very great achievement.
"This is the first iteration-(edition) of the Aso Villa Day. In the
next year I am sure it is going to be bigger and better. I don’t
know if we are going to get Mark to be able to show up for that.
But somehow or the other we are going to keep him in the loop
and let him know what we are up to and how much progress we
are making.
"I want to thank you all for taking the time to be here, taking the
time to participate. And I want to say that this country is going
to be built on the energy, on the innovation and on the creativity
of the very young people who are here. And whenever young
people say that we want to be included, I believe very strongly
that today you are included and no one has a choice in that
matter.
"Today technology has created a level playing field; technology
has made it possible for you seated somewhere in your office
or living room to create wealth, to create connectivity, to create
all manner of things across the world.
"So this was not like when I was 25. It is a new day, it is a
completely new day and I think there is so much hope and
there is so much that your generation of people are going to do.
And I am certainly looking forward to being a part of that. By
the time I am 80 I hope that I will be in a position to have an
App that enables me to follow very closely whatever all you
people are doing seated somewhere in my village enjoying life.
"I am sure that you are all going to have a great future and I
certainly look forward to working with you as part of the
government of Nigeria to ensure that all of our plans, all your
talents and abilities are put to the best possible use and we
support you all the way.
"We are also looking forward to cooperating with Facebook. I
am sure that in the next couple of months we will be working
out the ways in which we can cooperate especially with
connectivity and some of the great ideas that Mark has for
improving connectivity in Africa. We are going to be working
very closely with him so that in the next few months we are
able to achieve something by way of increased connectivity for
all of Africa.
"Again thank you very much. God bless you all. Thank you,
sirs, and thank you ma."
