Review state[edit]

  • There were several passages too close to source; this is something the reporter, just starting back into the swing of things, should tighten up on. The reporter is just getting back in, the article is long enough to somewhat dilute the problem passages, and I'm hoping there will be little else to change during review, so I can (perhaps; knock wood) afford to spend most of my leeway as reviewer on these passages.
  • Something went awry re the WTO, re both the attribution and the year.

In re the WTO, the hidden comment was unhelpful surely. The AU release called it the largest trade bloc, and DW as well. Frankly, I was writing far to late into the night and mixed that detail up. The VOA source seems to suggest a little differently: "After months of reluctance over competition concerns, Nigeria's support gives weight to forming the world's largest free trade zone — a 55-nation bloc worth $3.4 trillion." This seems to get wrong that it's a 54-nation bloc, Eritrea not having joined. The AU themselves say "The AfCFTA will be one of the largest free trade areas since the formation of the World Trade Organisation". Tbh, it might be less problematic to simply remove that sentence. —mikemoral (talk · contribs) 06:15, 10 July 2019 (UTC)
