A Nigerian, Uzoma Asagwara has been elected into Canada’s legislature in the Manitoba province.
Her election was a historical mark in the country as she was the first qu*er black person to be elected in Manitoba.
The Nigerian-Canadian said that she is glad that the new black representatives in the province are a reflection of the minorities in the community.
She said that making the elected officials reflect the people is the only way to make sure the people’s voices are heard in the province.
Asagwara has worked in Canada as psychiatric nurse, and for long and has been a community activist in Winnipeg.
She is one of the three black people that were elected in the legislature in its 150-year history.
