“ Prior to joining the transition , Okolo served as Senior Health Policy Advisor to US Representative Jan Schakowsky of Illinois .she drafted , negotiated , and managed the Congresswoman's legislation , oversight , and policy across a comprehensive health care and public health agenda , most recently focusing almost exclusively on the COVID - 19 pandemic, ” the transition team said in a statement.

Okolo , whose parents are reportedly from Edo State , was born and raised in Massachusetts and graduated from Harvard College.

  1. Do you want me to tell you all the truth?
    I am a Nigerian-American myself. My kid is American -born and schooling in America.
    these kids do not have any Nigerian antecedents or psyche. They are so different from all of you in the reasoning and thinking.
    They do not pursue the vanities that most Nigerians pursue.
    So you can go on rejoicing that "a Nigerian has been appointed."
    But before you attack me, let me ask you one potent question;
    "Barack was born of Kenyan father, thus a Kenyan" right?
    You can fill the gaps. 不不不不不不

    1. That's why we should all strive to be good citizens and useful to the society so that everyone will claim us. Who no like better thing? Kenya has a right to claim Obama, we too have a right to claim Anthony Joshua, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Jidenna and any other Nigerian doing good. They are our father's Uncle's brother's sister lol. Same way we reject Hushpuppi and any other Nigerian doing bad. Foreign media does exactly the same. It's a good life lesson for us all. Be the good news from Nigeria.

    2. Jah bless you for this. Joe Biden win is seen as a win for the Irish. The British royal family acknowledges it's immediate German roots.

      No matter how remote, all relations glow in thier kith and kin success or achievement.

  2. Now plenty Nigerians go fall for this come collect the vaccine..
    Some of us don wise up.. No be so them put Obama and we dey happy say black don reach there until e bcum clear say na boyi-boyi him dey do for there.

    Dem de remote control am like mumu

  3. For the first time,edo to the world..yeehhhh who stone me slippers..
