Nigerians React As Rochas Okorocha Swears In Sister As "Commissioner Of Happiness"

Nigerians React As Rochas Okorocha Swears In Sister As

The new development comes weeks after Nigerians criticized Mr. Okorocha for honouring and erecting statues of some African leaders in his state.

Ogechi Ololo, the governor's sister, was appointed the commissioner of the ministry.

In yet another odd move that is already drawing condemnation, the governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha named his sister, the Commissioner for Happiness and Couples' Fulfilment as he swore in 28 new commissioners and 27 Transition Committee Chairmen for the 27 local government councils in the state.

Swearing in the new commissioners and the Transition Committee Chairmen on Monday at the Imo International Convention Centre, Owerri, the governor charged the appointees to leave their marks in their respective ministries and local governments.

He said the correct name was Ministry of Happiness and Purpose Fulfilment.

The development was greeted by sharp criticism from Nigerians at home and overseas.

"The word "Couple" was inadvertently written, instead of the word "Purpose", we regret that".

The statement added that the "real essence of life is to be happy and to fulfil one's goal in life; Government officials are elected to address this".

So when one follower asked the Tony Award-winner if his wife was pregnant, he responded "Oh hell yeah". The couple, who Wednesday in 2010, already has a 3-year-old son, Sebastian .

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.

The Governor lamented that happiness which is a "vital element of our social lives has not been properly addressed".

Before her appointment as commissioner, she served as the deputy chief of staff, domestic and internal affairs, in the government.

There's no official word yet on what her responsibilities, or salary, will be.

"This is the very reason people elect their leaders: to guarantee their happiness and goal fulfilment".

He recalled that in one of his public speeches stated he had stated that his "Social Contract with the people is to make them happy".

"The Ministry of education now has 3 Ministries; Primary and secondary, Tertiary & non-Formal Education, ICT, Science and Technology".
