Mark Zuckerberg has returned to Nigeria to meet with President Muhammadu Buhari.

While details of the meeting with the president are not yet known, in one of the photos shared, Zuckerberg was seen showing the President a drone named – Aquila – a solar-powered aircraft that will beam internet connectivity to places that don’t have it.

Zuckerberg also met with the finalists of the first Aso Villa Demo Day (AVDD) 2016, speaking to the start ups about their ideas. “I am excited to be here. To the participants, I am blown away by what you are doing, I believe in you, Congrats to you all,” Zuckerberg said.

He also took to his Facebook page to announce his arrival at the Aso Villa.

“Last stop of my trip: I’m in Abuja to meet Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.” He wrote.

He continued.. “We all met with entrepreneurs as part of Demo Day, an initiative for the Nigerian government to fund entrepreneurs with ideas for improving the country. We heard from engineers who are finding ways to reward people for recycling, designing ways to pick up trash easier, and using shuttles to improve commutes in Lagos.”

This has been an inspiring trip. The energy and entrepreneurship in Nigeria and Kenya is amazing. I can’t wait to come back again soon!”
