Dr Okojie has joined other Nigerian citizens making the country proud with their success in the diaspora.

In similar news, a lady identified as Ruth Inomina joined other citizens making the country proud abroad as she was commissioned as a second lieutenant in the United States Army.

The disclosure was made by a compatriot on LinkedIn named Justice O Derefaka, who implored proud Africans to congratulate the young lady. In recent times, many abroad have been making the continent proud through their achievements in their fields of endeavour.

Recall that a Canadian-based Nigerian man identified as Kelechi Madu was 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. Madu said he cherishes the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, which says:

Poet Fareed Agyakwah becomes Africa’s 1st ambassador of UMMA
“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.”

He assured that those words in the charter would flourish in the lives of Albertans and inspire confidence.
