As part of efforts to support the children left behind by the late Minister of State for Labour, Mr James Ocholi (SAN), the Federal Government has announced automatic employment at the Federal Ministry of Justice for Aaron, his eldest son.



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.

He also disclosed that 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 Minister added that the Senior Advocate was a very critical part of the change effort of the Federal Government.

He 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.

Mr Malami consoled them that death was a necessary end that was bound to happen, adding that God in his infinite mercy had a reason for allowing them to depart the way they did.

“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”, he told Ocholi’s eldest son.

“Your father was a very hardworking and conscientious member of the Federal Executive Council who was very passionate and worked hard for the realisation 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 AGF said.

Mr Malami also recalled that as far back as the days of the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), Ocholi was one of those who stood strong behind President Buhari and was one of those who took part in the judicial struggle afterward in an effort to claim the presidential mandate at the election tribunal up to the Supreme Court at that time.

He prayed that his departed soul rests in peace.

The Minister of State for Labour and Employment died in a road accident along the Kaduna-Abuja highway on Sunday, March 6, along with his wife and son.

The deceased and his family were returning from a private visit in Kaduna.

I want to say something positive...but nothing comes to mind.

Since we have started like this...let's not forget Yaradua's son, Abacha's son and all the sons of persons who died in active service to the country.

When my papa and Mama die, govt no even pay 1 extra month pension to support them burial. Worked for 35 years and earned pension for just 5 yet govt no look our face. All the soldiers wey die for Boko Haram hands, dem pikins no get scholarship sef.
Odiegwu, whom God has buttered his bread, let no man stop him from enjoying it. Abi is it because GMB was not on the throne then?

Must person dies before federal government gives automatic employment to their family members in nigeria? It reminds me of immigration recruitment exercise where the victims family were given automatic employment.

RIP to the dead.. But was the employment based on merit or just emotions?
Its a job in a civil service and not a a political appointment.. The vacant post should have been made public & all qualified Nigerians should be given opportunity to apply..
Nigeria is for all Nigerians & not a certain group of elites & their kids..

It is so shameful to see how our youths are in support of this. The responses of most people on this topic is a typical example of why politicians in Nigeria have succeeded over the years in getting away with every form of impunity.

In as much as I sympathize with the living for the dead of their love ones, can someone on this forum tell me how the dead of Ocholi automatically qualifies the son for a government job?

Was the job in question ever advertised according to the laws set down for appointment into government agencies?

Or the job was magically created for him, while FG have been shouting that there is no job and they don't have fund to pay existing workers.

Did the son applied for the job or did he attend any interview to start with?

Partisan politics apart, youth people of Nigeria, you should all wake up and start asking questions rather than agreeing with every silly move made by the government just because you voted for them and don't want to look bad in front of your friends. It is your future and you should endeavor to protect it, by thinking for yourself and asking questions rather than being spoon-fed BS.

I doubt Buhari would support this move.

I hope this is extended to our soldiers and to those corpers that were brutally slaughtered in the North after 2011 election else their blood will keep hunting Nigeria. Also to that medical corper that died while treating lassa patient.
These people I mentioned above are not richer than Ocholi's family
