Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari, on Thursday, congratulated the Nigerian national, Kelechi Madu, who was recently appointed the minister of justice in Canada.
News Central had earlier reported that Madu announced his appointment as Minister of Justice and Solicitor General for the Government of Alberta in Canada via LinkedIn in a lengthy post.
Buhari, in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, described the Nigerian appointment as “landmark and historic.”
“President Muhammadu Buhari rejoices with Nigeria-born Kaycee Madu, appointed Minister of Justice and Solicitor General for the Government of Alberta, in Canada,” the statement read.
“Madu makes history as the first African born provincial Minister in Canadian history, and is also the Provincial Secretary and Keeper of the Great Seal of the Province of Alberta.
“President Buhari describes the honour as ‘landmark and historic,’ saying it once again pedestals people of Nigerian descent as go-getters, who distinguish themselves in different walks of life.
“The President says as the first Black Justice Minister and Solicitor-General in Canada, Madu has written himself into history books, and urges Nigerians, both at home and abroad, to remain good Ambassadors of their country.”
