About six months after dissolution of his cabinet and the dissolution of Transition Committees in the 27 council areas of Imo state, Governor Rochas Okorocha yesterday swore in 28 Commissioners including his own sister.
Okorocha’s sister, Mrs Ogechi Ololo was given new portfolio – wait for it – Commissioner for Happiness and Couples’ fulfilment……..
Addressing the new appointees, the controversial governor charged them not to betray the trust reposed in them while stressing that they were appointed to prove their mettle in the service of the State and its people.
Okorocha charged the new appointees to work as if they had only a few weeks to deliver and leave their marks in their respective Ministries and Local Governments with a view to making themselves as men and women on rescue mission as they had come to be part of the success story of the administration and contribute their own quotas.
He said: “You are the privileged group that has the opportunity to make names for yourselves and put your signatures on the sands of time. 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 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 on-going projects are completed especially the Schools and Chapels”.
He reiterated that what his administration has achieved so far has exceeded all that the previous administrations in the State, both Civilian and Military put together had achieved pointing out that anybody with contrary claim on that should make it public. Adding that the government had completed over 1000 projects across the state and counting.
Ololo had held previous offices such as Special Adviser, Domestic Deputy Chief of Staff, Domestic and she is incharge of the controversial annual Christmas tree decoration. She is also known to handle contracts for the state and easily falls into the bracket of the most influential persons in the Imo state Government House
