The Executive Director of the Abuja based media and civil society organization, Africa Media Round Table Initiative (AMRI) and a pubic affairs analyst, Omoluabi Olabode Adeyemi has described the death of the Honourable Minister of State for Labour and Employment Barr James Ocholi as a colossal and very devastating loss to the people of Kogi state, Legal profession, Nigeria and indeed the christian community.

He described the news of his death as one he still hope could turn to “April fool”even in the month of March.

According to the media and communication expert, Barr Ocholi is an eloquent example and testimony of humility, selflessness, patriotism and excellence, he was a rare specie of his generation and a shining light in the legal profession and a rare man of God.

In his words, “I’m highly devastated, rattled, confused and rudely shocked to hear about the news of his death, this is man who had become a rallying point for the heterogeneous people of Kogi state even in their various tribes and communities, he has emerged as a bridge between the old and the young, the poor and the rich, the educated and non educated in the last few months of representing Kogi state in the Federal Executive Council. He has also began a process of confidence building among the major tribes in Kogi state by giving sense of belonging to the respective tribes in appointment, job security and government patronage of the Federal Government.

“Today we have lost a brother, friend, leader, mentor and true patriot. While mourning this priceless and indefatigable son of Kogi state, we are consoled by his legacies of love, selflessness, courage, humility and discipline.

We also believe in the words of a sage that says  the ‘mystery of life and death is only known to those that have experienced both’ you now have experienced both and you live forever in our hearts and memory”

He therefore commiserate with his immediate family over the death of their breadwinner, father, son and sibling.

Omoluabi therefore call on the federal and state government to immortalize him by naming government institution or edifice after him as this will encourage the younger generation to exemplify his good character and outstanding achievement.
