A Nigerian who has been appointed minister of justice and solicitor-general in Canada, Kaycee Madu, has said that his utmost prayer is to see when the Nigerian government and African leaders will give premium attention to hard work and reward people who are hardworking.
In a tweet on his twitter handle on Sunday, he expressed gratitude for the all prayers and support he had garnered from Nigerians both home and abroad, a development which had elevated him to becoming minister in the Canadian cabinet.
His tweet reads thus: “Thank you for all the support and prayers coming from Nigeria and Nigerians in the Diaspora. I look forward to the day when Nigeria and Africa become places where hard work and merit are rewarded. Chukwu Gozie.”
Mr. Madu made history as the first black African to be appointed in the Canadian government. He was called to the bar in 2000 and after that he and his wife moved over to Canada where he has been practicing before this appointment.
His appointment into the Canadian government gathered reactions from a cross the country.
