James OcholiThe Presidential Villa has been in a sober mood as more reactions continue to pour in following the death of the Minister of State for Labour, Barrister James Ocholi, his wife and son, who were involved in a ghastly motor accident on Sunday.

The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geofrey Onyeama, described him as a fabulous human being and one of the friendliest in the cabinet.

The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina described the death as a terrible tragedy.

He said that as an active member of the Federal Executive Council, the late Ocholi will be accorded the full honours when the council sits on Wednesday.

He said that the President misses Barrister Ocholi who he reposed implicit confidence in because of the role he played during the presidential election that brought President Buhari to power.
