Former Nigerian Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, on Thursday celebrated Kaycee Madu, a Nigerian immigrant who has been appointed as minister in Canada.

Madu was first elected as a Member of Parliament in Alberta, Canada, before being appointed Minister for Municipal Affairs.

“Madu, 45, a Nigerian immigrant, graduated with a bachelor of laws from the University of Lagos. He migrated to Canada in 2005 with his wife who enrolled in postgraduate studies at the University of Alberta,” reported the Edmonton Journal.

The United Conservative Party candidate Kaycee Madu was declared the winner in Edmonton-South West in a close race against John Archer of the New Democrat Party.

Mo Elsalhy of the Alberta Party was a distant third.

“Today, I celebrate Mr. Kaycee Madu, a Nigerian who was first elected as a Member of Parliament in Alberta, Canada, and has subsequently been appointed Minister for Municipal Affairs,” said Mr Abubakar.

“Seeing Nigerians prosper in Nigeria, and around the world, has always been the cornerstone of my vision, the Atiku Plan”.

Atiku added: “Upward mobility and local and international successes, of the type displayed by Mr. Madu, go a long way in changing the international narrative of Nigeria, which, in recent years, has suffered some challenges.

“Even more importantly, we must highlight the role education played in preparing Mr. Madu for the spotlight. As I have said previously, education is the single investment that yields the biggest dividend. I should know, I have put my money where my mouth is.

“The more Nigeria invests in education, the more our people will become beacons of light, both locally and internationally.

“Today I celebrate Mr. Madu’s achievements. I am proud of you and will do all within my power to ensure that many Ahmadus, Gbengas and Emekas, follow in your footsteps”.
