Nigerian-born Kate Osamor reportedly turned the table around during the UK election to the House of Commons as it was widely believed that the Labour party will lose nearly 50 seats in the parliament this year.
She, however, managed to steal the victory from the candidate of Conservative Party despite the fact that the party has overwhelmingly leading results in the country.
Meanwhile, in Edmonton area of East London, voters were said to have preferred Osamor of the Labour party because she is very well-known as a community and trade union activist.
It was gathered that it is because Osamor helped local people to cope with stagnant wages and rising prices, that made her secured 25,388 votes as against the 9,969 votes that was recorded by Daniels of the Conservative Party.
Kate Osamor is not the only Nigerian-born MP in the UK’s parliament. She is now expected to join her Labour party fellows like; Chi Onwurah and Chuka Umunna.
Meanwhile, Helen Grant was elected as the sole Nigerian representative of the Conservative Party in the British parliament.
