(Photos) Lionel Messi in Gabon, chauffeur driven by the country’s presidentpresident.

The Barcelona star was hosted in Gabon on Saturday by President Ali Bongo to lay the foundation of their new 22,000 seat stadium. 
He Was Driven By the President himself around  the streets of Libreville 

Messi officially started the building process at the Port-Gentil stadium, which will host Africa Cup of Nations matches in 2017. He came dressed in a casual pair of denim shorts and t-shirt
"When I was in Barcelona a few years ago, I met Messi who had told me that he would come to visit me in Libreville" said the Gabon president. "It's a promise he made me. He is a man of honour who just kept his word.".
There are reports that he was paid 3.5m Euros by Ali Bongo to make the appearance and it's causing serious wahala in the country. Gabonese are angry about the obscene amount and say their president belittled himself by driving Messi around. He was there for just one day. More photos after the cut..
