Major Lyte/Wikidata Edit-a-thon for Tourism in NIgeria
As a result of the success that was recorded during the Wikidata for Tourism in Nigeria. This edit-a-thon is aimed at organising a practical session for the new wikimedians to put what they have learnt into practice.

They requested for subsequent opportunity for them to be productively engaged after the previous training session.

As a result the team was compelled to come up with this edit-a-thon in order to ensure active participation of the newbies in the Wikidata community and in the Wikimedia Movement as a whole.
