Oye Owolewa has been declared winner for the U.S congressional seat for the District of Columbia. A pharmacist licensed in the District of Columbia, Owolewa becomes the first Nigerian American to win a seat in Congress.
Since beginning his pharmacy career in 2014, Oye has spent his free time volunteering in DC public schools. In 2018, he was elected commissioner of his neighborhood in SouthEast DC. He is also an advocate for DC statehood, leading to his run for Congress. I will also add that Oye made out time from his campaign to lend his voice to the #endsars protest which held at the Embassy of Nigeria in Washington DC. - JOI JOHN
