President Buhari mourns Ocholi's death

President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed shock and sadness at the death of the Minister of State for Labour, Barrister James Ocholi (SAN), who died alongside his wife and son in a car crash in Abuja yesterday, March 6. Buhari described his death as untimely, and said that Nigeria has lost a key component of the CHANGE agenda.

“Barrister Ocholi was an accomplished and patriotic Nigerian, who was keen to accept the call to service at a time his country needed him,” President Buhari said, adding that in the few months he had been in office, the late minister of state had already begun to distinguish himself through his commitment and dedication to his portfolio.

The late Ocholi has had a long record of political association with President Buhari.
President Buhari also consoled with the government and people of Kogi State, whom he described as having lost a distinguished and irreplaceable son. He prayed that God would comfort them and grant them the grace to bear the loss.“The entire country mourns the loss of this great man, who has sadly left us when we need him most,” he said.
