An African lady identified as Ruth Inomina has made the continent proud abroad as she was recently commissioned as a second lieutenant in the United States Marine Corps (USMC).
The disclosure was made by a compatriot on LinkedIn named Justice O Derefaka, who implored Africans to congratulate the young lady.
In his post on LinkedIn, Derefaka noted that the USMC is a branch of the United States Armed Forces responsible for conducting expeditionary and amphibious operations with the United States Navy as well as the Army and Air Force.
He added: "The U.S. Marine Corps is one of the eight uniformed services of the United States."
In recent times, Africans abroad have been making the continent proud through their achievements in their fields of endeavour.
Recall that a Canadian-based African man identified as Kelechi Madu was recently appointed minister of justice and solicitor general of the Province of Alberta in Canada.
Madu took to his LinkedIn page to reflect on his new appointment and vowed to ensure that everyone in Alberta has access to equal justice.
He said his legal work has always been informed by the fundamental belief that everyone deserves equal access to justice, adding that this will never change.
Madu said he cherishes 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.”
