The Federal Executive Council, FEC, will on Wednesday hold a valedictory session in honour of the late Minister of State for Labour, James Ocholi.
This was disclosed by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina yesterday, while speaking with State House correspondents.
According to Adesina, “You can feel the soberness in the atmosphere. Everybody believes that this is a terrible tragedy. Mr. President paid glowing tribute to the departed. Their relationship dated back to the CPC days to the role he played in the APC merger.
“The President just concluded that it is a tragedy of monumental proportion.
“The late Ocholi will be given his dues. He was an active member of the Federal Executive Council.
“I recall that we shared laughter after the last meeting on some things that were hilarious.
“So you can be sure that on Wednesday, the council will pay him his due tribute.”
Ocholi, alongside his wife and son had on Sunday lost their lives in an accident on Abuja-Kaduna road.
