Abuja - Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, has paid tribute to the late Minister of State in that portfolio, James Ocholi.
He described the deceased as an accomplished intellectual, who was ebullient and deductive in evaluating issues, yet remained humble.
The minister therefore asked Nigerians especially the youths to emulate his virtues.
Ngige stated this in a condolence letter he addressed to the Ocholi family of Abocho in Dekina Local Government Area of Kogi State.

“I had the privilege of working with your son, James till his death. He was unassuming, humble yet ebullient, hardworking and a believer in the English maxim that the reward for good work is more work. He was cerebral and scientifically deductive in his evaluation of issues,” he said.
Ocholi, along with his wife and son died as a result of a car accident on March 6.
They were buried last Friday.
Ngige prayed for the repose of their souls.
“We acknowledge the inevitability of death as a mystery whose solution lies only with the Almighty, yet it still comes as a shock when death happens, especially, when it is the death of good people,” he added
