Ocholi: Nigeria Has Lost a Bright, Fertile Mind – David Mark
Immediate past President of the Senate, Senator David Mark has described the death of Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Mr. James Ocholi (SAN), his wife and son as one tragedy too many.
Senator Mark in a reaction to the tragedy in Abuja today said that the death of Ocholi has robbed the nation of a very vibrant, articulate, progressive and fertile mind.
Senator Mark pointed out that late Ocholi was a foremost legal luminary and an administrator per excellence who was determined to bring meaningful development to Nigeria.
According to Mark: “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 nationhood.”
Senator Mark noted that Ocholi left a legacy of hard work, honesty, unwavering commitment to the ideals of nation hood, which he noted should be the guiding principle for every right thinking member of the society.
He prayed that God almighty grant the immediate family, Government and people of Kogi state and Nigerians alike the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.
