Chairman/CEO, Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NiDCOM), Abike Dabiri-Erewa, has congratulated Mr Kaycee Madu, a Nigerian based in Canada, on his appointment as the first black Minister of Justice and Solicitor General for the government of Alberta, a Canadian province.
In a congratulatory message signed by Head, Media and Public Relations, NIDCOM, Abdur-Rahman Balogun, on Thursday, Dabiri-Erewa expressed delight that Madu had proved his mettle which earned him the exalted position.
“We are so happy for Mr Madu on his well deserved appointment. This confirms our saying that our Diasporans are our greatest asset making us proud globally,” the NiDCOM boss said.
She advised Madu to continue to give his best in the administration of justice, urging others to emulate “such an excellent behaviour.”
Dabiri-Erewa said the appointment of Madu as Minister of Justice was a reward of “consistent hard work, dedication and determination to succeed in his chosen career irrespective of the fact that he was in the foreign land.”
