Imo State Governor Rochas Okorocha on Monday appointed 28 new commissioners in the state, Punch reports.
Among the 28 was his biological sister, Ogechi Ololo (nee Okorocha), who was sworn in as the Commissioner for Happiness and Couple’s Fulfillment.
Ololo had, according to Punch, previously served as Okorocha’s Deputy Chief of Staff and Special Adviser on Domestic Matters.
He also appointed 27 Transition Committee Chairmen for the 27 Local Government councils in the state.
Speaking at the event at the Imo International Convention Centre, Owerri, 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.
