Another Nigerian-American, Nnamdi Chukwuocha, has emerged as the winner of a seat in the Delaware State House of Representatives, under the Democratic Party in the 2020 US General elections.
He joined the list of other Nigerian-Americans like Oye Owolewa and Esther Ajayi that have so far recorded success in the US 2020 General Elections.
Mr. Nnamdi Chukwuocha is no first-timer, as he had been a member of the Delaware House of Representatives, representing District 1 under the democratic party since January 8, 2019. His current term ends on November 8, 2022.
Chukwuocha won his re-election to the Delaware House of Representatives to represent District 1 outright in the general election on November 3, 2020, after the Democratic primary for this office, scheduled for September 15, 2020, was canceled.
It should also be noted that Nnamdi Chukwuocha received a bachelor’s degree in history and a master’s degree in social work from Delaware State University.
He is also a United States Army veteran, and has over 30 years of experience as a social worker.
Chukwuocha was elected to represent District 1 in the Delaware House of Representatives in 2018, but assumed office in 2019.
In the 2019 session he was a member of the Corrections Committee, the Education Committee,
The Health & Human Development Committee, the Veterans Affairs Committee, and Vice-Chairman of the Transportation/Land Use and Infrastructure Committee.
