Oye Owolewa, who is originally from  Kwara State Nigeria, a doctor of philosophy (Ph.D.) degree holder in Pharmacy from the North-Eastern University, Boston, contested on the platform of the Democratic Party as a ‘shadow’ (non-voting) House of Representative member out of the District of Columbia (DC) and won.

This makes Oye the first Nigerian-American to have made it to the US Congress.
