Nigeria's Toni Iwobi Becomes Italy's First Black Senator



Italy has elected the first black senator in its history, it was announced on Tuesday, and he belongs to the anti-immigration League.



Toni Iwobi, of Spirano in Lombardy, announced "with great emotion" on his social media pages that he had been elected to the senate in Italy's general election. 


Iwobi, 62, was born in Nigeria and came to Italy on a student visa some 40 years ago, before marrying an Italian woman and starting his own IT company . 

Before running for senator he represented the League as a municipal councillor in Spirano back in the 1990s, and more recently headed Salvini's national committee on immigration.

While his positions may seem surprising given his own experience, Iwobi says that he does not oppose immigrants who – like himself – come to Italy legally and seek to integrate; instead, he says, his problem is with what he calls "the clandestine invasion": people who seek to stay in Italy illegally.

    1. What is great about the news, did you read through story at all?
      An olosho was lucky to get a student visa to Italy, finished his studies as an immigrant in student visa and saw the opportunities and difference compared to his Yeye country Nigeria.
      He then decided to marry an Italian woman so he would be able to renew his almost expired Visa so he could become an Italian citizen. Fast forward to 2018 where you can't even renew your student visa anymore in the UK and this ungrateful element is saying he doesn't like illegal immigrants 😏😏.
      Oga set na EU dem born you, abi no be through student visa you take enter Italy and you refused to return to Nigeria.
      Nonsense man πŸ‘¨ πŸ˜πŸ˜ŽπŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ™ˆ.

    6. Don't mind the idiots who voted Trump in, are they not suffering it as well. Some of them where fortunate to get to the US and because they don't want people in Nigeria to be able to join them.
      Atleast Trump is already giving them all insights of where they belong too.

  6. I am glad this isn't Trump. People would have tagged him racist again.
    The man is a legal immigrant. He may have entered using student visa and later marring an Italian but it doesn't make him illegal immigrant. He strategised. Let others do same. We should learn to say the truth always.

    2. Thank you oh. The only thing people picked up from the article is anti-immigration. He said he has problems with people who enter clandestinely. As if it’s not on this blog we read about people crossing from Libya to Italy and all the terrible things happening. Everyone against this man should come see how this people live in Italy, you go cry for them.

    1. No mind the stupid man, thank God it was revealed that he got into Italy through student visa. Why didn't the idiot come back to Nigeria after his student visa expired? He saw opportunities that does not exist in Nigeria and was smart enough to make quick decisions by marrying an Italian to become a legal immigrant.
      He is now yearning nonsense
