Kelechi Madu: A Nigerian Appointed Minister of justice and solicitor general in Canada

 A Nigerian based in Canada has been appointed minister of justice and solicitor general of the Province of Alberta in Canada

After being appointed by Premier Jason Kenney to lead the ministry of justice, Madu took to his social page to make a promise that everyone will have equal access to justice

Madu says he is looking forward to working on many critical democratic reforms

He said his legal work has always been informed by the fundamental belief that everyone deserves equal access to justice, adding that this will never change.

Madu said he cherishes the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, which says: “Every individual is equal before and under the law and has the right to the equal protection and equal benefit of the law without discrimination.” He assured that those words in the charter would flourish in the lives of Albertans and inspire confidence.

He added:

"I look forward to working on many critical democratic reforms, including recall legislation and important citizenship initiative referendums, and taking the lead role on the implementation of our government’s fight for a fair deal within confederation."
