Below you can find my comments:
Juliana, it is okay for your monuments to belong to multiple lists. In your
case, you can create three top level entry points for lists by the National
Institute of Cultural Heritage Preservation, the States and the
Municipalities. This way, participants may have multiple entry points to a
single monument, which is fine. :) This being said, please document this
clearly, as when the data is going to be transferred to Wikidata, we may
need to be aware of this.
Vira, this is an important question and something we should address with
the Wikidata community. :) André works on transitioning the data to
Wikidata and it would be great to hear his thoughts here.
Shola, you are already being helped by others which is great. :) Three more
things to share:
1) Please make sure that there is no official monument ID. If you have
doubts, please ask a bit more. It's best for us to use the official numbers
when they exist. :)
2) You can read about the use of unique identifiers and how to define them
That link refers to the same link Vicenç mentioned earlier and it tells you
a bit more as well.
3) In the case of Nigeria, my suggestion is for you to wait for Romaine to
work with you to create the lists on Wikipedia (Follow up at
https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T140583). After that, I'd like us to have
a discussion with André to see what the best way to create IDs for Nigeria
is. We used to recommend creating IDs to countries when no official
monument ID existed, however, now that Wikidata is more present in our
ecosystem, it's not clear that we should do that. We may want to create the
lists on Wikipedia first, make sure that each monument on the list has a
corresponding item in Wikidata, and then potentially use that Wikidata item
number as the unique ID for the monument.
