Kelechi Madu, a citizen of Nigeria from Southeast has been appointed as Minister of Justice and solicitor general of the Province of Alberta in Canada.
This was made known by Madu after he shared a post on his LinkedIn page to reflect on his new appointment and vowed to ensure that everyone in Alberta has access to equal justice.
As I reflect upon my new appointment as the Minister of Justice and Solicitor General, the Provincial Secretary and Keeper of the Great Seal of our great Province of Alberta, the importance of carrying this ministry forward amid these difficult social and economic times weighs heavily on my mind.
My fundamental belief that every soul deserves equal access to justice has always informed my legal work, and that will never change.
As a foreign-trained lawyer, I cherish 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.” I want to ensure that these words flourish in the lives of Albertans, and inspire confidence, not uncertainty.
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.
I want to thank Premier Jason Kenney for putting his confidence in me to lead this important ministry
I want to thank my family – my wife, Emem, and my three beautiful children – for their constant support, love, and prayers.
