President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday expressed shock and sadness at the death of the Minister of State for Labour, Mr. James Ocholi (SAN), who together with his wife and son were killed in a car crash on Sunday.

In a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, Buhari described the minister’s as untimely, regretting that Nigeria had 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,” Buhari said.

He added 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 Buhari.


Buhari also condoled 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 President has sent the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr. David Babachir, to formally convey the news to members of the deceased family as well as parishioners in his place of worship.
