  • JosefAnthony has proven to be a force to reckon with on Wiki Data. His last project,"Wikidata Introduction to Federal University Lafia, Nasarawa State", has shown that he understands the assignment when it comes to igniting a wiki movement within his local community. This project on Nigerian Prisons will further shine light to unknown details about the correction facilities in Nigeria. Ceslause (talk) 08:10, 6 August 2021 (UTC)
  • Haven been involved in his last project, and feeling a sense of pride that he has really gotten involved in the wiki-movement, I strongly believe he will execute this project just fine. Udehb (talk) 15:00, 6 August 2021 (UTC)
  •   Strong support The project scope is relevant. OtuNwachinemere (talk) 21:41, 7 August 2021 (UTC)
