The governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha blaze the trail as one who appointed his own biological sister as a Commissioner for Happiness and Couplesâ€™ Fulfilment along with 27 others and 27 Transition Committee Chairmen for the Local Government Councils in the state.
The governorâ€™s sister, Mrs. Ogechi Ololo (nee Okorocha), who is married to Chuks, an engineer, was the All Progressives Congressâ€™ candidate into the House of Representatives for the Owerri Federal Constituency seat in 2015 and she has served in various capacities since Okorocha became the state governor in 2011.
She had, before her new appointment, served as her brotherâ€™s Deputy Chief of Staff and Special Adviser on Domestic Matters.
Swearing in the new commissioners and the Transition Committee Chairmen on Monday at the Imo International Convention Centre, Owerri, the governor charged them to leave their marks in their respective ministries and local governments.
He urged them to see themselves as men and women on a rescue mission.
The governor added that they had come to be part of the success story of his administration.
Okorocha said, â€œYou 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.

â€œAt 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.â€
He reiterated that what his administration had achieved so far had exceeded all that the previous administrations in the state, both civilian and military put together, had achieved.
