  • When it comes to Wiki Data, Udehb is a fisher of men. Every project he does is not just to rake in new information, but also rakes in new wiki disciples. He kills two birds with one stone, hence why I believe he will achieve beyond the set goals for this project. He is an experienced editor, who is objective about Wiki data growth. His role in the just concluded,"Wikidata Introduction to Federal University Lafia, Nasarawa State" is a great evidence of his drive and commitment in the movement. I endorse this "Wikidata Justice Nigeria" project as I believe it'll shine the light on the judicial world of Nigeria, highlighting its personnel so far. Ceslause (talk) 09:36, 6 August 2021 (UTC)
