PDP claims Jonathan brought Zuckerberg to Nigeria

06 September 2016, 13:08

Abuja - The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Sunday said former President Goodluck Jonathan was responsible for the recent visit by Facebook Founder and CEO, Mark Zuckerberg to Nigeria, Herald reports.

Dayo Adeyeye, spokesperson of the PDP caretaker committee, said this in a statement.

The statement claimed that the visit of Mark Zukerberg to Nigeria would not have happened if Jonathan had not set up the two ICT incubation centres in Lagos and Calabar.

Zuckerberg visited Nigeria on Tuesday and Wednesday where he met with technology developers in Lagos.

The sixth richest man in the world who left Nigeria for Kenya on Thursday after meeting with Buhari attended the Aso Villa Demo Day in Abuja, a government technology initiative according to News24.

Adeyeye also responded to the allegations that Jonathan turned “a blind eye” to the economic crisis, which started manifesting under him.

Mohammed Baduru, governor of Jigawa state, made the allegation.

However, Adeyeye said that Jonathan saw recession coming and had plans to tackle it, but some members of the party who are now in the All Progressives Congress (APC), frustrated it.
