Following PREMIUM TIMES’ report of how Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo state appointed his sister as the Commissioner for Happiness and Couples’ Fulfilment, Nigerians have taken to social media to express widespread outrage.

Ogechi Ololo (Nee Okorocha) alongside others, on Monday at the ceremony in Owerri, the state capital swore the oath of office in a cabinet reshuffle.

The new appointment makes Mrs. Ololo the first commissioner at the newly-created Ministry of Happiness and Couples’ Fulfilment.

Mrs. Ololo, who is also the Deputy Chief of Staff (Domestic and International Matters), is expected to retain her initial appointment.

In a statement by the chief press secretary to the governor, Sam Onwuemeodo, Mr. Okorocha said that the new appointment would not be business as usual; adding that laziness and corruption would not be tolerated.

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

Nigerians have, however, taken to various social media platforms especially on Twitter to register their disapproval of the new appointment.

A twitter user Kelvin Odanz‏ (@KelvinOdanz) charged Nigerians not to be distracted from the current anti-SARS campaign.

“Don’t let Rochas Okorocha and his trademarks idiocy distract you from the things that really matter. Operatives of SARS are still roaming the streets, Yomi Shogunle is on a rampage, SARS reorganisation is a scam. #ENDSARS”, he said.

Another user, Nedu Ekeke #BBOG (@Nedunaija) said “Rochas Okorocha of Imo State appoints Mrs. Ogechi Ololo as the Commissioner for “Happiness and Couples’ Fulfillment”. If there was any doubt that Okorocha is a total misfit, he cleared it today.”

    Like Buhari like Okorocha. The worst calamity that can befall anyone is to have Okorocha & Buhari as governor & president at the same time. I pity people of Imo State. APC is synonymous with mocking visionary leadership cum good governance.

      Look guys I laud Okorocha for this singular act – For greater love had no man for his people that he gave his own very sister to all the men to come and find ‘happiness and fulfilment’ . I understand there is a queue already although some have said she is too ugly and they will not be taking up this offer from the heart. To them I say you must not look a gift horse in the mouth. Appearance is not all. am sure her brother knew what she was capable off before giving her that onerous task. i hope everyone who wishes will have the opportunity before his term runs out. I wonder whether this is a ploy on his part to see if Imolites will ask him to do a 3rd term. Anyway let us see what the first happy men report. stay tuned.

        You can mock the good Imo people all you like but remember there is God. Beelzebub see what your sons Okorocha and his godfather buharare doing to Nigerians and Imo people in particular. Buhari and his son-in-crime have raped people lame. What heartless Okorocha is doing to Imo people like watching a rich fat man eating his stake in front of hungry poor people. But what is worse is the money Okorocha is squandering does not belong to him alone, it looks like armed robbery.
