The second one was that he completed his first legislative order as he joined other members of the House to vote Honourable Andrew Joyce as the chairman of the county legislature.
In 2019 also, Efekoro got a special invitation from ABC News to talk about his significant election and how it is a very important point of reference for the Millenials.
