The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the just concluded election has commended the appointment of Kaycee Madu as the first Nigerian elected member of the Parliament in Alberta, Canada.
Atiku Abubakar said upward mobility and local and international successes, of the type displayed by Madu who was appointed minister of municipal affairs in Alberta go a long way in changing the international narrative of Nigeria.
In a statement released on Thursday, May 2, Atiku said seeing Nigerians prosper in Nigeria, and around the world, has always been the cornerstone of his vision.
“Even more importantly, we must highlight the role education played in preparing Mr. Madu for the spotlight. As I have said previously, education is the single investment that yields the biggest dividend. I should know, I have put my money where my mouth is," Atiku said.
He added that the more Nigeria invests in education, the more our people will become beacons of light, both locally and internationally.
“Today I celebrate Mr Madu’s achievements. I am proud of you and will do all within my power to ensure that many Ahmadus, Gbengas and Emekas, follow in your footsteps,” Atiku said.

Legit.ng reports that the APC filed a motion at the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal in Abuja saying Atiku has no right to challenge the result of the 2019 presidential election as he was not a Nigerian.
The APC said Atiku’s case lacked merit as he was a Cameroonian and therefore has no right to stand for election.
