Nigerians calls CNN out for intentionally removing Nigeria from the news of Mark’s visit
The owner of Facebook was in Nigeria yesterday on announced and the country was pretty much excited. Lots of pictures were taken, see all here and lots of news agency carried the news. One that has got many Nigerians angry was the one carried by CNN. The news giant as usual picked it up as they should but never mentioned the name NIGERIA. They wrote sub-Saharan Africa and that alone felt like an insult to the citizens and the country at large. Many twitter users went ahead to call the news agency out. Some said if it was about killings by Boko Haram they will gladly mention the name of the country but since it’s something this wonderful they decided to withhold the name of the country from the world.

In other news Senator Ben Murray Bruce seems not to be fascinated by the visit. He said there are many Mark Zuckerberg’s in Nigeria. The problem is they are looking at govt instead of looking inwards to their talents and skills!
