This is very sad, but listening to the news the last few days, I felt
increasingly worried. Safety first.

Dear Community members,
We regret to inform you that WikiIndaba 2019 expected to take place in
Abuja, Nigeria will be postponed till later in the year.
This decision was reached after advise from International SOS, the
Wikimedia Foundation’s travel insurance and security advisors, who had
been monitoring the security risk in Nigeria for the last several
months. Due to the increase in security crackdowns, associated risk of
violence to bystanders, and the proposed timing of the conference
(January 18 - 20) being so close to the national elections (February
16), we have decided to delay the conference to later in the year for
the safety of all conference attendees.
While the expected dates for Wiki Indaba 2019 will be announced as
soon as possible, please plan tentatively for sometime in June/July
2019, pending the improvement of security in Nigeria post national
The Wikimedia Foundation and the Wiki Indaba 2019 Local Organizing
Committee regret any inconvenience this may cause as we place the
safety and security of community members as high priority and will
keep the community updated on the new dates.
