Yakubu Dogara, Speaker of the House of Representatives on Wednesday joined prominent Nigerians to mourn the late Minister of State for Labour and Employment, James Ocholi.
According to THE NATION, Dogara said that he missed the opportunity to tell the late Minister what he meant to him. Speaking with an emotion-laden voice at the Service of Song for the late Minister and his family, Speaker Dogora recalled meeting the late Minister in the house of his elder brother, pointing out that “we had useful discussion, but never knew that was the last time we will be meeting.
“If I had known that was the last time I will be seeing him, I would have told him what he meant to me”.
Dogara said although a lot has been said about the late James Ocholi, the service of song was not enough to honour him, pointing out that the service is however an avenue to remind ourselves of what Ocholi did when he was alive. He said the best way to honour the late Minister was to replicate the good virtues he left behind.
