Irrespective of the negative vibes that the arrest of Hushpuppy and his gang generated for Nigeria and her citizens globally,we have tons of Nigerians that have been contributing positively to the world. It is no more news that Nigerians are among the most educated immigrant community in the United States of America. This situation has seen a lot of Nigerians taking up positions that are very sensitive and delivering.
The recent appointment of a Nigerian,Ediri as a judge is a testament to this. A Nigerian from Delta Central (Urhobo extraction), Delta state, EDIRIN O. OKOLOKO, being sworn in, as a judge of the Snohomish County Superior Court in Washington State, U.S.A. Okoloko will replace Judge George Bowden who is retiring.
Okoloko bagged his Bachelor of Law from the University of Benin in Nigeria. He also received a law degree from the Seattle University School of Law, and has worked for the past 13 years in the Snohomish County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office, where he is a Deputy Prosecuting Attorney working on homicide, sexual assault, child abuse, and elder abuse cases.
Before working as a prosecutor, Okoloko served as a judicial law clerk for former Snohomish County Superior Court Judge Michael Downes. Congratulation to you Edirin Okoloko, may you continue to represent well.
