Eldest son of late Minister of State for Labour and Productivity, James Ocholi (SAN), Aaron James Ocholi, has been offered automatic employment at the Federal Ministry of Justice by the Federal Government, as part of efforts to support the children left behind by the late Minister.

Aaron, is a law graduate who was called to bar in October 2015, and the only surviving son of the late Minister Ocholi, who died alongside his wife and second son in a fatal motor accident last Sunday along Abuja-Kaduna road.

The Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, revealed this to the Ocholi family when he paid a visit to his Kado Estate residence at about 3:00pm on Tuesday, to convey his and President Muhammadu Buhari’s condolence message.

Also Aaron’s other siblings would enjoy scholarships for their educational pursuits, courtesy of the Federal Government who has pledged to cushion the effect of the loss of their parents, the AGF disclosed.

Malami said that President Buhari personally mandated him to inform the family of the late Minister that his administration would do all within its power to ensure he is not missed.

In Justice Malami’s words to Ocholi’s eldest son;

I am here to convey Mr. President’s condolence message and he has asked me to personally inform you that you have been given automatic employment in the Federal Ministry of Justice. The employment letter is in process and you can resume work after now.

Your father was a very hardworking and conscientious member of the Federal Executive Council who was very passionate and worked hard for the realization of the change agenda of this government.

Indeed, it is a sad moment for all of us and the vacuum which his death has created is not only for the family, but the leadership as well. He was a great pillar in the struggle which brought this administration to power. He played a major role in the merger process.

The Minister added that the late Senior Advocate was a very critical part of the change effort of the Federal Government.

He prayed for the souls of the departed to rest in peace.
