Yoruba Page[edit]

Mr UKabia - I think I know who you are and your kind. You have changed items that were verified on the Yoruba page and reduced the authenticity of the page - you have then moved those items to the Igbo page - This is not the place for tribalism. If you don't have facts; don't put it up. And stop removing things that have been verified and moving it somewhere else. What rubbish? U think this is the place for lies? Behave yourself. You edited sections of population and slavery on both pages with stuff made up in your head. Are you kidding me? If you are unbaised - go and edit the Hausa page. If I see you on the Yoruba page without verifiable items I will report you. God Bless. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Toludpilgrim (talkcontribs) 22:48, 4 August 2013 (UTC)

I honestly don't know what you're talking about. If you have a problem with an edit you can edit it with a reliable source, otherwise these unprovoked personal attacks are unnecessary. Ukabia - talk 20:31, 8 August 2013 (UTC)

Removal of references[edit]

Hi there. Why did you remove valid references from this article list? The article has over 40 references, yet you removed 3 of these references without stating in your edit summary why you did this. Amsaim (talk) 20:04, 24 April 2010 (UTC)

Enugu blank.svg[edit]

I came across this, and then Template:Enugu LGA map. Maybe there should be different colors for each Senatorial zone, like this one? A variant could be useful to illustrate the articles on LGAs, which are mostly just stubs but should be expanded. The LGA names do not have really to be clickable, since the LGA articles have a template at the bottom that lists them all. For a different kind of map, which would also be interesting, see Maps for Free. Roads and the larger communities would also be useful. There has to be some straightforward way of creating the maps. Any thoughts? Aymatth2 (talk) 15:59, 31 May 2010 (UTC)

You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Wikipedia Reviewer.svg

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, is currently undergoing a two-month trial scheduled to end 15 August 2010.

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under pending changes. Pending changes is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial. The list of articles with pending changes awaiting review is located at Special:OldReviewedPages.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 01:28, 18 June 2010 (UTC)

Enugu peer review[edit]

Enugu, Good article review[edit]

Hello, I have been reviewing the article you nominated, Enugu, and have found several broken links in the article. These links must be fixed if I am to pass this article for GA. I will place the review "on hold" for one week to allow time for changes to be made. --Tea with toast (talk) 01:15, 1 September 2010 (UTC)

Moves, Nigeria LGAs[edit]

Hello- I have just undone one of your recent moves, then noticed there was a lot more. I am not aware of any discussion being raised on these moves or any consensus being reached; maybe I missed it. None of the links would seem to have been amended which will leave an unholy mess unless they are corrected. Regards (Crusoe8181 (talk) 03:15, 19 September 2010 (UTC)).

Enugu[edit]

I'm very sorry I have not attended the the review of Enugu. I've never asked for a second opinion for a review, and I was under the impression that the second reviewer was responsible for passing/failing an article.

FAC Welcome[edit]

Hi Ukabia, I noticed that you mentioned that Enugu was your first FAC nomination. Welcome to FAC! Unfortunately, I had to archive the nomination, as it was open for almost three weeks with no supports. It looks like you got some decent feedback (some articles have trouble drawing reviewer eyes), and hopefully any improvements that result from that will make your next foray into FAC a little easier. Please don't be discouraged - it is quite normal for first-time nominations to be archived, and most of those articles later become featured. Your quick and calm responses to reviewers were appreciated, and I hope that we see you back at FAC again soon. Karanacs (talk) 16:32, 20 October 2010 (UTC)

Your edits in the Port Harcourt article[edit]

Hi Ukabia. You seem to be a reasonable and experienced editor, and as such I would like to ask you to please first discuss on the talk page the major changes which you would like to introduce into the Port Harcourt article in order to achieve community consensus. Your recent edits in the Port Harcourt Article are controversial, and they do not adhere to Wikipedia's Neutral Point of View Policy. Your controversial edits have now drawn IP editors into the article adding their own personal opinion. Thus we have a situation whereby Wikipedia is disrupted. I have thusly reverted all controversial edits for the following reasons:

  • Some of the material which you added is not sourced, e.g. in the infobox data field "native_name" you placed the word "Diobu", but there's no source given for that, and in the lead section of the article you wrote that Port Harcourt in the Igbo language is Diobu, and again no source is given for that.
  • The source which you attributed to this sentence of the lead section "The area that became Port Harcourt in 1912 was originally the farmland of the Diobu village group of the Ikwerre, a subgroup of the Igbo people" is from a self-published source (published by iUniverse, a selfpublishing company), and thus cannot be used for inclusion in Wikipedia, and most certainly not to source controversial material.
  • In the opening sentence of the History section, you used 2 sources as a reference for Diobu. The first source is the same self-published source as in the lead section (from iUniverse), and you also used this source as a reference for your statements about Diobu. However, the word Diobu does not appear anywhere in the second source. Thusly, your additions about Diobu are either unsourced or are from a self-published source.

Try not to misunderstand me. I am neither for or against the inclusion of any alternative or native name of Port Harcourt. My only concern here is to ensure that Wikipedia's Neutral Point of View Policy and WP:RS are being adhered to in the Port Harcourt article. In the past couple of weeks I've done some research about Port Harcourt, and found out several issues. One issue is that the Nigerian City of Port Harcourt was created from the scratch by the colonial British government from empty unused and uninhabited land found in Southern Nigeria. Thus any claim by anybody or any group of people of a supposed native or alternative name of Port Harcourt is merely personal opinion.

Please do not add such controversial material into the article again. I shall be forced to bring the matter to the administrator's attention if you continue adding unsourced or self-published material into the Port Harcourt article. Thank you. Amsaim (talk) 11:15, 28 October 2010 (UTC)

Since you have again refused to discuss major changes to the Port Harcourt article in the talk page of the said article, and again repeatedly added unsourced material, original research and self-published material into the article, I will proceed to report your POV-pushing to the appropriate administrator's board. Amsaim (talk) 12:11, 28 October 2010 (UTC)

Hi Ukabia,[edit]

Father of Panafricanism[edit]

Hi, Ukabia, a famous descent of a St. Thomas Igbo was Edward Wilmot Blyden, regarded as father of Panafricanism. Perhaps important for the Igbo article. --Tfjt (talk) 20:31, 1 November 2010 (UTC)

Thx, for your answer on my talk page. You are right, difficult to integrate him in the Igbo people article... perhaps he is famous enough to be represented by a picture on the top of the article? What do you think? --Tfjt (talk) 21:03, 1 November 2010 (UTC)

Port Harcourt[edit]

HI nice work but can you please find sources for geography down to militancy, the article is extremely unbalanced in terms of quality/sourcing.♦ Dr. Blofeld 22:48, 6 November 2010 (UTC)

P.S Enugu is an amazing article. Probably the best on a settlement anywhere in Africa and a shining example of all others to follow. Keep up the terrific work. If only we could have that sort of quality for all the LLGs!♦ Dr. Blofeld 22:52, 6 November 2010 (UTC)

Igbo tribes[edit]

Hi Ukabia,

Since you're moving the articles, could you clarify what the Igbo tribes are? Some "subgroups" are evidently distinct enough to be considered separate ethnicities, but I haven't been able to clarify which they are, and for all I know some are clans. — kwami (talk) 16:37, 30 January 2011 (UTC)

Hello Ukabia[edit]

It seems you did not allow neutral point of view to work while editing Nigerias three major languages arrangement for some reasons,maybe as i have noticed,you do more work on Igbo articles and you need to have more refs as i will provide you with one to see the figures of nigerian ethnic groups,it will help you.The new arrangement was reverted because the former arrangement you changed was done according to population estimates of various ethnic groups of Nigeria [here] thanks and don't be offended Ukabia for the reversion.yours Netknowle message me! 09:00, 22 June 2011 (UTC)

File permission problem with File:Igbo Ukwu Object Diagram.png[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Igbo Ukwu Object Diagram.png. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file agreed to license it under the given license.

If you created this media entirely yourself but have previously published it elsewhere (especially online), please either

  • make a note permitting reuse under the CC-BY-SA or another acceptable free license (see this list) at the site of the original publication; or
  • Send an email from an address associated with the original publication to permissions-en@wikimedia.org, stating your ownership of the material and your intention to publish it under a free license. You can find a sample permission letter here. If you take this step, add {{OTRS pending}} to the file description page to prevent premature deletion.

If you did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the file to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the file has already given their permission to you via email, please forward that email to permissions-en@wikimedia.org.

If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:File copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:File copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have provided evidence that their copyright owners have agreed to license their works under the tags you supplied, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Files lacking evidence of permission may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. You may wish to read the Wikipedia's image use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. –Drilnoth (T/C) 23:32, 15 July 2011 (UTC)

File:Amputated Congolese youth.jpg needs authorship information.[edit]

Dear uploader:

The media file you uploaded as File:Amputated Congolese youth.jpg appears to be missing information as to its authorship (and or source), or if you did provide such information, it is confusing for others trying to make use of the image.

It would be appreciated if you would consider updating the file description page, to make the authorship of the media clearer.

Although some images may not need author information in obvious cases, (such where an applicable source is provided),authorship information aids users of the image, and helps ensure that appropriate credit is given (a requirement of some licenses).

  • If you created this media yourself, please consider explicitly including your user name, for which:{{subst:usernameexpand|Ukabia}} will produce an appropriate expansion,
    or use the {{own}} template.
  • If this is an old image, for which the authorship is unknown or impossible to determine, please indicate this on the file description page.
If you have any questions please see Help:Image page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 17:31, 26 July 2011 (UTC)

WARNING[edit]

Ukabia, I don't care what you disagree with, you don't delete tags from articles until they've been addressed. — kwami (talk) 00:14, 21 August 2011 (UTC)

What is there to adress? The tags are completely redundant, especially when the information your requiring was referenced and has been explained in the main article. Infoboxes aren't supposed to be detailed. Ukabia - talk 00:16, 21 August 2011 (UTC)
We list dialects, and say the "standard" dialect is standard. This is empty gibberish; it would be like saying the language of Nigeria is "Nigerian". We need to define our terms. The second problem, of course, is that you're claiming nsibidi is a writing system when it's not. You may disagree with my understanding of the refs, but the tags stay until this is resolved. If you continue to delete the tags, I will ask to have you blocked. — kwami (talk) 00:30, 21 August 2011 (UTC)
Standard Igbo, as explained in the article, has been modified from Central Igbo which was based largely on (but not completely on) dialects from Owerri to Umuahia. Different dialects merged together. The Standard Igbo itself is not any one pre-existing dialect and is a dialect of its own (as explained). It's nothing like saying 'Nigerian', unless Nigeria develops a language from the languages of Nigeria and calls it something else. If you ask to have me blocked, I will challenge it and I will show that Standard Igbo needs no explanation. Ukabia - talk 00:35, 21 August 2011 (UTC)

March 2012[edit]

Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. I noticed your recent edit to Igbo people does not have an edit summary. Please provide one before saving your changes to an article, as the summaries are quite helpful to people browsing an article's history. Thanks! Looking at your contributions log you seem to use edit summaries only very rarely. Using them well will help other editors decide that, for example, your edits are not vandalism. It took me a while to determine that your edit to Igbo people was a valid replacement of one citation with another. Fiddle Faddle (talk) 14:23, 31 March 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for the invitation.[edit]

I deeply appreciate that you have invited me to WikiProject Igbo and apologize for my late response.

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Igbo people in the Atlantic slave trade, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Guayana (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Replaceable fair use File:Osita.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Osita.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that this media item is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails the first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media item could be found or created that provides substantially the same information or which could be adequately covered with text alone. If you believe this media item is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the file description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the file discussion page, write the reason why this media item is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per the non-free content policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. VernoWhitney (talk) 16:37, 26 November 2012 (UTC)

Nigeria and French[edit]

I have sites like these that prove that French is a DE FACTO of Nigeria. Sites: http://www.antimoon.com/forum/t15459.htm - http://www.nigeriavillagesquare.com/forum/main-square/106-french-nigerias-2nd-national-language-official.html - http://www.lingref.com/isb/4/002ISB4.PDF - http://allafrica.com/stories/200203050036.html ---- there are many other links.... i put much time into those edits which are now gone... — Preceding unsigned comment added by Chukwizy (talkcontribs) 13:01, 13 July 2013 (UTC)

For something as important as an official or national language of a country, there needs to be a reliable and factual source like a source from the government or a reliable news piece. The links you gave are to an opinion piece and the other states that French is being considered as Nigeria's second official language, not that it actually has become the second official language. Also, the CIA World Factbook and other sources only list English as the official language of Nigeria. The translations you gave of mottos, national anthems, and so on into French do not exist. There's also no basis to the Biafra and French language link.Ukabia - talk 16:35, 13 July 2013 (UTC)

Your ignorance is not evidence[edit]

Please stop. The purpose of WP is not to delete things you don't know, but to learn. You might want to read adjective. — kwami (talk) 20:11, 8 September 2013 (UTC)

You're/the article is trying to convince me that Igbo has only eight adjectives, so there should be evidence for this and not just a reference to a book that cannot be easily found. I know what an adjective is which is why I know there are a lot more than eight adjectives in Igbo, have you checked an Igbo dictionary yet? Ukabia - talk 22:18, 8 September 2013 (UTC)
It's an easy reference to find, and again, your ignorance is not evidence. Please stop or I will report you for edit warring. — kwami (talk) 22:37, 8 September 2013 (UTC)

Vowel assimilation[edit]

Thanks for your addition to Igbo, but I don't understand what this sentence is saying:

Vowel assimilation in Igbo occurs when the place feature of a preceding vowel merges into the quality of the following vowel giving the latter greater prominence, but leaving the former identifiable.

Could you try to explain it? thanks, — Lfdder (talk) 21:44, 14 September 2013 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Oliver De Coque[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Oliver De Coque requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a band or musician, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, you can place a request here. Epeefleche (talk) 02:47, 4 May 2014 (UTC)

[INFO] Igbo contemporary masquerade[edit]

Mr. Ukabia thank you for sharing your knowledge. I'm curious about this photo: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Igbo_people#mediaviewer/File:Igbo_contemporary_masquerade.jpg I would like to know what's the meaning of the 3 masks and the lion that he's holding? Thank you.
