Wikipedia Campaign At Nuhu Bamalli Polytechnic Zaria (Nubapoly)
This project will promote wikipedia movement in Nuhu Bamall Polytechnic Zaria (Nubapoly). This project will go round in different departments. I suggested the project to go round in different departments unlike in Kadpoly where the project focused in 2 departments only i.e (Hausa/Mass Communication departments) base on the experience i got during Kaduna Polytechnic's project, the Kadpoly students from other departments were wished to be part of the training, that is why i planed this on this project to go round in different department in Nuhu Bamalli Polytechnic Zaria. It will also guide the students on how to utilize wikipedia pages and through the project, i will put them through easy research on their studies. Nuhu Bamalli Polytechnic is a State Polytechnic with thousands number of students and has different sciences, technologies and arts departments. It is located at KM 5, Zaria-Kaduna Express Way, PMB 1061, Zaria, Kaduna State, Nigeria. You can read more about Nuhu Bamalli Polytechnic (Nubapoly) [[1]].

[assessment tool (here)]

7. Is there anything else you want to tell us about this project?

Yes, I want to carry out this project and to be done in Nuhu Bamalli Polytechnic Zaria (Nubapoly) because students find it very difficult in research especially when it comes to assignments, C.A tests and Course works, the students are mostly copying from one another because they lack research resources. I attach two books (Hausa to English to Arabic and Hausa Pocket Dictionary (Qamus)) that would be used during the campaign especially for those that don't understand Hausa Language in creating article. Some students come from different state where they don't understand Hausa Language specially from Southern Kaduna or Nigeria in general.
