Revealed: James Ocholi's last words before his death

09 March 2016, 13:13

Abuja - State Labour Minister James Ocholi spoke of "end-time" before his tragic passing in an auto crash on Sunday.

The late Minister's untimely death came as a result of a burst tyre, which killed him and his youngest son, and later, his wife.

According to Naij , fresh revelations have emerged surrounding Ocholi's last words, which were uttered at the Restoration Bible Church in UngwarRomi, Kaduna State.

"We should give this government under President Muhammadu Buhari the opportunity to turn the country around for better and also put the nation on development track,” the late Minister was quoted as saying.

A church member who spoke on condition of anonymity has also revealed that the late Minister spoke of "end-time" as he mounted the pulpit for an eight minute exhortation to the congregation.

“The minister who was on the pulpit said we should be consistent with God, because we are in the end-time. He also advised us to support government programmes,” the church member revealed.

Ocholi's surviving children have since been offered bursaries and automatic jobs by the Federal Government.
