The United Progressive Party (UPP) received with shock the news of the death of the Minister of State for Labour and Employment, James Ocholi (SAN), his wife and son in a fatal motor accident along Kaduna-Abuja expressway on Sunday, 6th March, 2016.
We are heartbroken over the death of three members of the Ocholi family who were returning to Abuja from a Church programme in Kaduna.
A legal luminary, Ocholi was an embodiment of patriotism and a politician’s politician. We are saddened that he died at a time he was in active service as a Minister of the Federal Republic.
Our thoughts and prayers are with members of the Ocholi family. We pray to God Almighty to give them the fortitude to bear the loss of their loved ones.
We commiserate with President Muhammadu Buhari on the demise of his Minister and competent Change agent. We also condole the Government and people of Kogi State for the death of their illustrious son, his wife and child.
May their gentle souls rest in the bosom of the Lord.
Chief Chekwas Okorie
National Chairman, UPP
