Nobody is great without work. Hard work is always the baseline of great achievements. Nothing spectacular comes without it. Getting organised is hard work. Setting goals, making plans to achieve them, and staying on track is hard work.

Very few have ever failed with the hard work approach to making it in life.

Kaycee Madu, a Nigerian lawyer recently appointed Minister of Justice in Alberta, a Canadian province, says he looks forward to a day when appointments are based on hard work and merit in Nigeria.

In the role of Minister of Justice, the officeholder serves as the minister of the Crown responsible for the Department of Justice and the justice portfolio.

Kaycee Madu recently became the first African to be appointed Minister of Justice in the Canadian province.

Kaycee (Kelechi) Madu is a Canadian politician who was elected in the 2019 Alberta general election to the Legislative Assembly of Alberta representing the electoral district of Edmonton-South West. On 20 April 2019, Madu was appointed to the Executive Council of Alberta as the Minister of Municipal Affairs.

Professionally, Kaycee is a lawyer with experience in both solicitor and litigation practice. Kaycee and his wife manage a small law firm in the city. Previously, he worked for Alberta Hospital – Patients Food Services, Legal Aid Alberta, and the Government of Alberta. Kaycee’s work in government spans through employment standards investigations, strategic and operational public policy, regulatory and legislative reforms, governmental issues management and stakeholder consultation. He is particularly proud that he and his colleagues completed the Firefighters Regulation before leaving the public service.

Kaycee enjoys giving back to the community in a variety of ways. He volunteers his legal skills with the Law Society of Alberta Lawyer Referral Program and the Edmonton Community Legal Centre (ECLC). He is a member of his cultural association, the Igbo Cultural Association of Edmonton, and supports his community league activities and his church.

Kaycee is a principled consistent conservative who believes in fundamental freedoms, obedience to the rule of law, personal responsibility, free enterprise, limited government, and smaller taxes.

He worked tirelessly for Jason Kenney during the two leadership campaigns and throughout the pursuit of conservative unity. He was involved in the organization of many constituencies for the PCs delegate selection meetings, PCs and Wildrose unity vote and UCP leadership vote. Kaycee has been a constituency association president and has sat on the boards of other UCP constituency associations, including Edmonton-Southwest Constituency Association where he lives.

Before his appointment, he was a member of the legislative assembly of the province representing the district of Edmonton South-West after winning the 2019 Alberta general election.
