Mr Nwosu who is originally from Nigeria has lived in Norway for 22 years and is actively involved in politics. Recently he was re-elected to Council. He is also the leader of the Labour Party in Søndre Nordstrand region within the Oslo City Council. Nwosu is excelling in politics despite the many challenges immigrant politicians have to face due to culture, and traditions in Norway.

The country is now going to the General elections in September to elect members to the National Parliament. The Labour party has been in power for 8 years now and the Right wing parties have ganged up in this elections with the intention to dislodge them.

The Right wing parties – the Conservative party and the Party of Progress ( a radically right-wing party) are trying to put up a unified front in their effort to take over power.

Elvis speaks to African Press on his plans to change the face of the city of Oslo. He thinks the many beggars that roam Oslo streets mainly during the summer season – persons coming from Eastern European country Romania should not be allowed to engage in begging, but instead should seek normal employment.

He is also for change when it comes to prostitution that is rampant in the city. The laws that forbid prostitution which were passed some years back, according to Elvis, has helped many prostitutes to seek other avenues away from the illegal trade. Some Nigerian women who come into the country from Spain and France to engage in prostitution on a short-term basis now realise that the trade is illegal and punishable by law and this is helping them to seek guidance and help from the Norwegian authorities in their efforts to quit being sex slaves. Some have their lives destroyed because they are forced into the trade by criminals who stand to gain from their prostitution.
