JUST IN: President Buhari Reacts To Appointment of Nigerian Woman as British Minister

President Muhammadu Buhari has commended the appointment of Olukemi Badenoch, a United Kingdom-born Nigerian as Under-secretary of Children and Families by the new British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, Igbere TV reports.

The President in a statement on Wednesday by his spokesman, Garba Shehu, described her appointment as “well-deserved”.

President Buhari urged the 39-year-old to regard her new position as an opportunity to justify the confidence reposed in her by making lasting impact.

He said he had no doubt that Mrs Badenoch would succeed given her academic qualifications and parliamentary experience.

He also enjoined the junior minister to see herself as an ambassador of her fatherland in conduct and performance.

According to the president, Badenoch’s appointment is a plus for Nigerians in Diaspora.

“It further confirms my belief that with hard work and integrity, Nigerians can excel in their chosen professions and fields of endeavour anywhere in the world,” Buhari said.

The President also applauded Johnson for finding Badenoch suitable.
