Twitter CEO Visits Nigeria

The founder of the famous micro-blogging platform, Jack Dorsey, first landed in Lagos and has been making major visits to tech hubs scattered around Lagos.

The Square founder visited one of the popular institutions in the state, University of Lagos, where he met with the students and the Vice-Chancellor, Oluwatoyin Temitayo Ogundipe, a professor of Botany, before proceeding to Nigeria’s state capital, Abuja.

During his tour in Nigeria, Dorsey interacted at several fora with Nigeria’s growing tribe of techies and visited Nigeria’s former finance minister, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, who is now on the board of the company. Mr. Dorsey also had dinner with popular OAP, Toolz and other media personalities.

At one of his sessions organised by Techpoint, Dorsey met a Nigerian app developer, Dara Tobi, who had developed an application that can capture reactions to a tweet. Dara was offered an automatic job with Twitter. He visited Art Cafe, where he had a morning of conversations with incredible Nigerian builders.

At every turn, Dorsey made tweets of all the encounters in Nigeria. The Square CEO posted a picture on Twitter, tagging it ‘Bitcoin meetup Nigeria’. The picture attracted a GIF reply from @CZ_Binance, the CEO of Binance amongst others. The visit was Dorsey’s first to Africa’s most populous country.

He is scheduled to visit Ghana, Ethiopia, and South Africa this month.
