UK Prime Minister Appoints British Nigerian, Kemi Badenoch As Trade Secretary

UK prime minister, Liz Truss has appointed British-Nigerian politician, Kemi Badenoch as the new UK trade secretary.

She takes over from Anne-Marie Trevelyan, who has been appointed as secretary of state for transport.

Badenoch was the equalities and local government minister prior to resigning from Johnson’s cabinet in July along with some other government officials over the former prime minister’s handling of a series of scandals.

The 42-year-old had also contested the prime minister position finishing fourth in the race.

Until her appointment as UK trade chief, Badenoch had also served as a junior minister in the treasury.

Born in south London, Badenoch’s parents are of Nigerian origin, and in her maiden speech in the house of commons, she described herself as “to all intents and purposes a first-generation immigrant”.
