Nigerian-Canadian Kaycee Madu has been sworn in as co-deputy premier and minister of skilled trades and professions of the Canadian prairie province of Alberta.

The ceremony took place on Monday in Edmonton, the capital of Alberta.

In former Premier Jason Kenney’s administration, Madu – a Nigerian-trained lawyer – served as the province’s minister of justice before being redeployed to the ministry of labour and immigration.

Madu is a member of the Alberta Provincial Parliament.

He won reelection earlier this month, prompting new Alberta Premier Danielle Smith to appoint him into her cabinet.
