About me

I studied Electrical and Electronics Engineering at the University of Ilorin. I'm currently venturing into the world of Entrepreneurship. I also have a very keen abiding interest in music, photography and filmmaking, as well as, a burning passion for Open education and Open access.

My work

I have been a Wikipedian since 2011, and I edit with the username "Jamie Tubers". I am a founder-member of Wikimedia User Group Nigeria (WUGN), and since its inception, I have served as the Outreach Coordinator for the group. Owing to my adequate knowledge of Wikipedia policies, I have helped to organize several editing workshops and edit-a-thons in Nigeria.

I have participated in and/or coordinated several Wikimedia projects, events and workshops at the local level, some of which include: Wiki Loves Africa, Wikipedia @15, Wiki Loves Nigeria, Wiki Loves Women, Wiki Loves Monuments, amongst others. For the ongoing Wiki Loves Women, I coordinated the 2-month contest and co-coordinated many of the workshops for the project. I also recently founded the Ilorin Wikimedia Hub (IWH), which runs as a branch of WUGN.

My major goal is to make sure that the wide content gap and systemic bias that exist, especially in relation to African content is solved. To achieve this, I aim to raise the awareness of Wikipedia and its sister projects (and other Open projects) as much as is practically possible, in Nigeria, so we can get more people to contribute from my country.
