President Muhammad Buhari has described the appointment of Nigerian-born Kaycee Madu as another pointer to the fact that Nigerians are go-getters who have distinguished themselves in different walks of life.
Buhari stated this in a congratulatory message to Madu over his appointment as the new Minister of Justice and Solicitor-General of the Province of Alberta in Canada.
The President, in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, described the appointment as landmark and historic.

According to him: “President Muhammadu Buhari rejoices with Nigerian born Kaycee Madu, appointed Minister of Justice and Solicitor General for the Government of Alberta, in Canada.
“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.”
