It is no news that the whole world is faced with the pandemic coronavirus (Covid-19) which started late last year in China. The record shows that the virus had killed several people while others who had been infected are still quarantined.

In what turned out to be a shock, the Twitter CEO and Square CEO, Jack Dorsey announced his re-evaluation about his initial plan to spend six months in Africa.

Remember that in November 2019, the Twitter team led by Jack Dorsey visited Nigeria and other African countries and Jack revealed his plan to spend some months on the African continent in the coming year (2020). This, to many tech enthusiast, would be a great avenue to learn, rob mind and as well serve a great inspiration to other Youth Techies. However, this hope became shattered as Jack announced his re-evaluation via a tweet.

The recent development is that Jack’s initial intention will be put on hold for now, while the skillful entrepreneur would alternatively go after other opportunities that the Africa continent presents without any need for him to be physically present.

In his tweet, Jack maintained that his decision becomes necessary amidst COVID-19 and ‘everything else going on.’

Speculation has it that everything else could be as a result of the recent pressure generated when Elliot Management, who happens to be the major investor reportedly pushed for his replacement. This could also have come up from claims that running two tech startups and his plans to stay in Africa for six months could distract him and could further disturb him from giving his best to the running of Twitter.
