The just-concluded 2020 US General elections have seen Nigerians in diaspora excel in their various offices and joining that growing list is member of the Delaware State House of Representatives, Nnamdi Chukwuocha, who just won his re-election, under the Democratic Party.

Other triumphant Nigerian-Americans include Oye Owolewa and Esther Ajayi who have so far recorded success in the elections that saw nine candidates of Nigerian descent run for a seat in the US congress/assembly.

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 his district, outright in the general election on November 3, 2020, after the Democratic primary for this office, scheduled for September 15, 2020, was canceled.

Chukwuocha was born November 16, 1970 and is an American politician and poet based in Delaware. He is also the current Poet Laureate of Delaware, along with his twin brother, Al Mills.

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.

In the 2019 session as a congressman, 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.
