Another Nigerian Wins Legislative Seat In America



Another Nigerian, Nnamdi Chukwuocha, a Nigerian-America, has won a seat at the Delaware house of representatives, a state legislature in the US.

Chukwuocha who was elected to represent district 1 of Delaware in the ongoing US general election, was first elected to the Delaware house of representatives in 2018, after he defeated incumbent Charles Potter Jr. at the Democratic Party primary.

Chukwuocha is the current poet laureate of Delaware along with his twin brother, Al Mills.

In the ongoing US general election, three Nigerian-Americans have won legislative seats and it is likely that the figure may increase as vote counts continue in many states.

Earlier, NaijaNews reported the victory of Oye Owolewa and Esther Agbaje, Nigeria-Americans, in the legislative election.

There are at least nine Americans with Nigerian descent contesting the election.
