  •   Strong support I am endorsing this as Regional Ambassador for A+F. The Nnamdi Azikiwe Library so far organises the largest A+F events in West Africa. Last year, a similar arrangement to get an experienced Wikipedian there was attempted but didn't materialize, and I wasn't able to provide them much support from remote. As a result, dozens of draft articles got caught up in the "slow" article creation process, many of which have now been deleted. I hope that we'll see an improvement in that this time around if an experienced person is on site to help them. I also think that this would be a perfect opportunity for the leadership of the Wikimedia community in Nigeria to establish a formal relationship with the University of Nigeria, Nsukka. —M@sssly 12:05, 8 March 2019 (UTC)
