A Nigerian-born Canadian, Kaycee Madu, has been appointed as the justice minister and solicitor general of Alberta, a province in Canada.

The 47-year-old was born and raised in South-east Nigeria. He graduated from the University of Lagos with a law degree in 2001. He has practised law in both Nigeria and Alberta.

According to CBC News, he and his wife relocated to Canada in 2005.

With the new appointment, he replaces Doug Schweitzer, the new minister of jobs, economy and innovation.

Prior to his appointment, Mr Madu was a member of the legislative assembly of the province representing the district of Edmonton-South West after winning the 2019 Alberta general election.

On April 30, 2019, he was appointed to the Executive Council of Alberta as the Minister of Municipal Affairs.

Mr Madu, a member of the United Conservative Party, is the first Nigerian-born cabinet member in Alberta.

Premier Jason Kenney on Tuesday said the appointment of Mr Madu makes a powerful statement at a time when Albertans have grown more sensitive to racial prejudice.

“[Madu] is a man who has experienced racial prejudice firsthand and can bring that sensitivity to this important role,” Mr Kenney said.

Madu was born and raised in Nigeria. He graduated from the University of Lagos with a law degree in 2001.
