SINCE the late Minister of State for Labour, Mr James Ocholi, died in a road accident, the Federal Government is yet to appoint another minister to represent Kogi State.
I believe President Muhammadu Buhari is a man who is known for justice and equity, and he would not allow Kogi State to continue without having a minister, who will also contribute to the development of the country.
The present Federal composition without anybody representing Kogi is not fair enough.
The state is blessed with men and women of integrity, and the president will not go far before discovering someone who he can appoint from the state.
I am, therefore, calling on President Buhari to quickly appoint someone from Kogi to replace the late Barrister Ocholi, so that the people of the state can feel a sense of belonging in this current dispensation.
