The governorship candidate of the All Progressives, APC in Cross River State in the last general election, Mr. Odey Ochicha has condoled with the President Muhammadu Buhari and Kogi State Governor, Mr. Yahaya Bello on the death of the Minister of State for Labor and Productivity, Barrister James Ocholi.

In a statement issued and signed by the APC chieftain in Calabar, Ochicha said that the news of his death came as a great surprise to him and his family.

According to him, the junior minister’s death was a national tragedy and a great loss to the nation.

While praying God to give his family the fortitude to bear the loss, he noted that, the vacuum left by Ocholi in Kogi politics and APC is irreplaceable.

“I want to condole with President Muhammadu Buhari and Governor Yahaya Bello and family of Mr. James Ocholi, Minister of State for Labor who died in a ghastly motor accident.

“Barrister Ocholi’s death is a national tragedy because Nigeria has lost a determined leader who has demonstrated unequivocal commitment to the development of the country.

“His death is untimely and shocking. I’m saddened by the news because he was a great component of President Buhari’s change mantra and a quintessential agent in the ruling APC.” The statement said.
