Another Nigerian-American, Nnamdi Chukwuocha (49) 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.
Chukwuocha joins the list of other Nigerian-Americans like Oye Owolewa (District of Columbia, shadow House of Reps member-elect) and Esther Agbaje (District 59B, Minneapolis House of Reps member-elect) that have so far recorded success in the US 2020 General Elections.
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.

He once served on the Wilmington City Council as President Pro Tempore and Chair of the Education, Youth and Families Committee.
In 2019, he was a member of the Corrections Committee, the Education Committee, the Health and Human Development Committee, the Veterans Affairs Committee as a US Army veteran and Vice-Chair of the Transportation/Land Use and Infrastructure Committee.
