Toni Iwobi Elected In Italy As First Black Senator by Islie: 6:04pm On Mar 06
Toni Iwobi, a Nigerian IT entrepreneur who has spent 38 years in Italy, has been elected as the first black senator in the European country.

He was elected on the platform of Matteo Salvini, a party accused of stirring up xenophobia in Italy.

Iwobi was elected in the industrial city of Brescia in northern Italy.

“It is with great excitement that I can tell you I have been elected senator,” he said in a brief statement.

A member of the anti-migrant League, Iwobi emerged a town councillor in 1995.

Ansa en Politics, an Italian website, described him as a committed activist.

Iwobi is said to be the party’s immigration and security chief, speaking regularly on Italian TV.

Its either you guys are trying to be myopic or cunningly ignorant.

Please brothers lets stop all these inferiority complex that makes us celebrate anything including iddiots and terrorists. Its obvious that you guys didn't read the news well.

This so called Iwobi is a member of a party stirring up serious xenophobia in Italy. And you can also see that he is A member of the anti-migrant League

Abum ezigbote Nwafor Igbo. Obughi ihe obula ka unu gana ashout Igbo Amaka Upandan!

Learn to read the news biko. This Igbo man is nothing short of a terrorist! How can you despise your roots and expect to be celebrated? More like "The House Nigga" during the American slave trade. Otherwise what else explains making him a Senator just like that? Nobody should tell me a dint of hard work biko. There are so many white Italians working harder than him.

We yoruba muslims are angry. Why would Italy elect an 'Ibo man' to lead them? Why can't they elect a yoruba muslim or Almajiris like since Ibos are not to be trusted.

Italy must behave like us in third world nigeria and marginalize Ibos if they must be developed like nigeria. Insha Allah! grin

Nwoke I read the news very very clearly. The whole anti-migrant talk is secondary. Is Trump the most talked about President not anti-migrant? Has the Senator's anti-migrant stand stopped Edo girls from making it to Italy? Forget long story,in a racist country like Italy,the man has done very well. He is an accomplished politician.
