The meet-up was organized by efforts of the steem9ja team. The major drawbacks of this event are;
- lack of funding for the publicity before the meet-up. We were not able to get enough fund for the campus sensitization for the meet-up.
- The student union government were against sharing the fliers around the university environment.
Special appreciation goes to God for allowing the meet-up to hold. We also want to use this medium to thank @stach for all the support for the meet-up. Special thanks to @steem-ambassador for their support.
Our appreciation also goes to the minnow school founder and co-founder for his presence. Many appreciation goes to @babaj for donating his speakers and projector for free.
Special thanks to the @steem9ja team for making this meet-up a success.
Finally, we appreciate everyone who came for the meet-up and supported one way or the other.
