Imo Gov, Okorocha Swears in Blood Sister as Happiness Commissioner

In what will earn Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, as one of the most controversial Nigeria governors was made Monday when he sworn in his biological sister, Mrs. Ogechi Ololo (nee Okorocha), as the state’s Commissioner for Happiness and Couples’ Fulfillment.
She was sworn along with other 27 new commissioners and 27 Transition Committee Chairmen for the 27 local government councils in the state.
He charged them to prove their worth in the service of the state and her people.
Apart from the curious Ministry, Ololo is a younger sister to the Governor, and married to Chuks, an engineer. She was the All Progressives Congress’ candidate into the House of Representatives for the Owerri Federal Constituency seat in 2015 and she has served in various capacities since Okorocha became the state Governor in 2011.
She had, before her new appointment, served as her brother’s Deputy Chief of Staff and Special Adviser on Domestic Matters.
Swearing in the new commissioners and the Transition Committee Chairmen on Monday at the Imo International Convention Centre, Owerri, the governor charged them to leave their marks in their respective ministries and local governments.
He urged them to see themselves as men and women on a rescue mission.
The Governor added that they had come to be part of the success story of his administration.
Okorocha said, “You are the privileged group that has the opportunity to make names for yourselves. I want to remind all of you that this appointment is not business as usual. We shall not tolerate any sharp practice or corruption of any type. Neither shall we accept indolence or laziness. You have been called to duty to help us to achieve our vision in the Rescue Mission Project.
“At this moment, I charge you all to be good ambassadors of the Rescue Mission wherever you find yourselves. To the Transition Committee Chairmen, you must ensure that ongoing projects must be completed especially the schools, chapels etc.”
He reiterated that what his administration had achieved so far had exceeded all that the previous administrations in the state, both civilian and military put together, had achieved.
