Niger state government has commiserated with the family, President Muhammadu Buhari, the people of Kogi state and all Nigerians over the death of the late Minister of state for Labour and Employment, Barrister James Ocholi, his wife and son.
In a statement by the commissioner of information, culture and Tourism, Mr. Jonathan Vatsa, the state government said that the death of Ocholi has left a big gap in the country and the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, considering his contributions over the years to legacy parties of APC and the formation and sustainability of the party.
Vatsa recalled that the late Minister of state was dedicated, committed and pragmatically worked for the realization of the change that the nation presently enjoys but added that it is most painful that the man that worked for the change so much will not be there to see that the change APC promised the people is delivered to the end.
“We in Niger state are indeed pained by this loss, it is indeed a loss that has created a big gap that is hard to recover from, he was a great man of ideas, intelligence, brilliance and commitment to what benefits the people, humanity and the country, he was indeed a patriot” the statement asserted.
According to the statement “the notorious fact is that we all have a date with death, but Barrister Ocholi’s death has brought a cold moment to the change mantra; a moment that we should reflect on to continue to work tirelessly to sustain what he stood for and his dream for the country in all his active years as a lawyer, opposition politician, change agent, and as a Minister”.
