Wikimedia User Group Nigeria/August meetup

Wikimedia User Group Nigeria held on the 25th of August 2018 at 90 Degrees hotels, Lagos Nigeria. The meetup was a gathering of Wikimedians from across the state with our members from University of Ilorin prominently featured at the meetup. The event was delayed due to a heavy down pour in Lagos. Many of our members ignored the rainfall to appear at the meetup.
