Former Senate President, Senator David Mark has described the sudden death of the Minister of state for Labour and Employment, Mr. James Ocholi (SAN), his Wife and Son as one tragedy too many.
Mr. Mark who spoke through his media assistant, Paul Mumeh, on Monday, March 07, 2016, lamented that the death of Ocholi has robbed the nation of a very vibrant, articulate, progressive and fertile mind.
“I mourn and indeed share the grief of the untimely death of our minister of state, labour and Employment. It is worse that Ocholi died along with his wife and Son. This is strange and indeed sad. Kogi state has lost a patriot, Nigeria has lost one of her finest, fertile and brightest minds.
“We shall miss his frank, honest, patriotic and uncommon disposition to the ideals of Nation hood.” He said.
The Senator noted that the late Ocholi left a legacy of hard work, honesty, unwavering commitment to the ideals of nationhood, stressing that his legacies should be the guiding principle for every right thinking member of the society.
Mr. Mark prayed for God to grant the immediate family, Government, people of Kogi state and the rest of Nigerians the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.
He pointed out that late Ocholi was a foremost legal luminary and an administrator per excellence who was determined to bring meaningful development to Nigeria.
