China Offers Nigeria $6bn Loan
for Infrastructural Development
According to the Nigerian foreign
minister, China has offered the Nigeria government a loan worth $6bn to fund
infrastructure projects. “It is a credit that is on the table as soon as we
identify the projects,” Nigerian Foreign Minister Geoffrey Onyeama told
newsmen, after the Nigerian president Buhari, met Chinese President Xi Jinping.
“It won’t need an agreement to be signed. It is just to identify the projects
and we access it.”
China’s Xi told Buhari there was
huge potential for economic cooperation in areas like oil refining and mining,
according to Xinhua, China’s official news agency.
In a speech to business leaders,
Buhari said both countries wanted to work together in agriculture, fishing and
the manufacturing of cars, construction materials and textiles.
Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, takes a jab at US
Presidential Aspirant Donald Trump
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg openly
espoused that he is anti-trump. He took a dig at Donald Trump and his
anti-immigrant rhetoric during a speech to lay out his vision for the
Facebook’s future. 
In his keynote address, to the Facebook Developer
Conference on Tuesday, Zuckerberg said, “I hear fearful voices for building
walls… Instead of building walls, we should build bridges.”
“Instead of dividing people we can connect people. We do it
one person at a time, one connection at a time. That’s why I think the work
we’re doing together is more important than it has even been before,” he said.
Zuckeberg’s comments contrast with Trump’s repeated calls
for building a wall along the border with Mexico. Trump also had recently
unveiled his plans of getting Mexico to pay for its construction by threatening
to block workers in the United States from remitting money home to their
families.
