At Ocholi’s memorial, Kogi indigenes lament non-inclusion in Buhari’s cabinet
Indigenes of Kogi State at the memorial of the late Minister of Labour and Employment, Mr. James Ocholi, have lamented their non-representation in Buhari’s cabinet.
They said their expectation of naming Ocholi’s replacement on the Federal Executive Council (FEC) failed to happen.But speaking at the occasion in Abuja, the Minister of Water Resources, Suleiman Kazaure, said FEC members would purchase 500 copies of the book and also support the Ocholi James Trust.
Also, the guest lecturer at the event, Prof. Kabir Mato while eulogising the principles that Ocholi stood for, said that Nigerians must find it acceptable that the country is in this present state because of the activities, actions and inactions of past administrations.
He, therefore, cautioned that Nigerians must know that the desire for change has consequences and that the current hardship is part of the process that must be undergone.The Minster of Science and Technology, Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu, who chaired the occasion, stressed the need for Nigeria to get her values.
