I had the pleasure of working with Anthony Chinweuba during the implementation of the TalkOo (Zusha) Road Safety research project across 12 states in Nigeria, funded by Georgetown University, Washington DC. Anthony initially joined our team as a field officer and quickly earned a well-deserved promotion to the position of team leader.
In his role as Team Leader, Anthony effectively managed a team of field officers operating in five states within the South East region of Nigeria. His leadership skills were exemplary, and he played a vital role in organizing training sessions and maintaining positive relationships with our project partners. Anthony also made significant contributions to the Monitoring and Evaluation component of the project.

I have known Mr. Anthony Chinweuba professionally for a year now. Anthony Chinweuba worked on a road safety research project that was implemented by Greenlight Initiative and Peace Mass Transit (PMT) in Nigeria, through the partnership of Georgetown University from U.S.A. During his tenure as a Team Leader on the project, Anthony Chinweuba was a high performer even when more responsibilities were assigned to him. He oversaw the entire data collection process in the South East region of Nigeria. The data collection work was based on the Zusha!(Talk Oo!)Road Safety campaign which is an initiative that strives to educate and empower passengers to demand and receive better services through safety stickers with motivational messages placed in Passenger Service Vehicles(PSV) such as buses.
I have found Mr. Anthony Chinweuba to be a very fast learner, ambitious and an excellent team player. And it is my belief that these qualities would make him a valuable and outstanding employee in your organization or team. I am confident that the experience gained from working with Greenlight Initiative and Georgetown University has equipped Mr. Anthony Chinweuba with the necessary skills and qualifications to perform excellently in more demanding positions now and in the future.
