Imo state Governor Rochas Okorocha on Monday, swore in 28 new commissioners and 27 Transition Committee Chairmen for the 27 local government councils in the state.
The Governor’s biological sister, Ogechi Ololo (nee Okorocha) was amongst those sworn in as commissioners by the governor.
She has now been appointed as the state’s Commissioner for Happiness and Couples’ Fulfillment.
In 2015, Ololo was the All Progressives Congress’s candidate into the House of Representatives for the Owerri Federal Constituency seat and has also functioned in various capacities since the inception of the Rochas Okorocha administration in 2011.
She had previously served as Governor Okorocha’s Deputy Chief of Staff and Special Adviser on Domestic Matters.
Governor Okorocha while swearing in the new commissioners and the Transition Committee Chairmen at the Imo International Convention Centre, Owerri, charged them to work to leave a mark in their respective ministries and local governments.
“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,” the Governor said.
