President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday congratulated Kaycee Madu, the first Nigerian-born individual to be appointed Minister of Justice in a Canadian government.

Madu made history on Tuesday after he was appointed Minister of Justice and Solicitor General for the Government of Alberta, in Canada, becoming the first African to be so honoured.

He is also the Provincial Secretary and Keeper of the Great Seal of the Province of Alberta.

In a statement signed by Presidential spokesman, Femi Adesina, President Buhari described 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.

In his reaction, Madu thanked everyone on his appointment.

Thank you, everyone, for all the well wishes. I am beyond humbled to accept my new role as Minister of Justice and Solicitor General – where I will pursue fairness, equality, and justice for all with every ounce of strength I have.
