Hi,
I'm kpouer, my name is Matthieu and I am from France.
I'm french country manager, and also since 2011 algerian country manager too.
I am interested mostly in Algeria edition, but since some wazers paved some roads from algeria to Nigeria (and other countries), I'm trying to validate them.
I already did the road from Algiers to Lagos and I'll try to validate other roads as soon as I will discover new paved roads.

Hi, it is a good news you are resident. I validated some roads in Lagos but I cannot edit everywhere.
Mostly I validated major roads but I don't think I changed name or directions. But if I did some mistakes, don't hesitate to tell me.
I see most roads in Lagos are not validated (it means there is no city and street name), it is a problem, at least it is mandatory to give a name or check the checkbox telling that it is not necessary otherwise Waze will not be able to use them.

Great, but why a private group ?
You can also create a twitter account, I don't know if twitter is popular in Nigeria.

Hi, there is not big community in Nigeria, at this time I think the best to do is connect the roads, and choose an appropriate type for them:

Freeway or major highway for long distance routing, minor highway for regional routing, primary street for village to village only.
