Imo state’s recently appointed Commissioner for Happiness and Couples’ Fulfilment, Mrs Ogechi Ololo, has allegedly replied Media personality Reno Omokri for criticising her appointment by her brother, Governor Rochas Okorocha.
Reno had called out Governor Okorocha on Twitter appointing his biological sister as the Commissioner for Happiness and Couples’ Fulfilment shortly after wasting money on statues. He wrote:
“Rochas Okorocha, a man who has spent more money on statues than he has on living human beings has now appointed his biological sister as “Commissioner for Happiness and Couples’ Fulfillment”. What sin did Imo people commit to deserve this embarrassment as their Governor?”
In response to Omokri’s rhetorical question, the Twitter account with the handle @MrsOgechiOlolo lambasted him thus: “The SIN that your mama committed by not swallowing that sperm that was wasted on your production. Anofia, Onyeberibe Zombie!”

Meanwhile, the Rochas Okorocha administration has blamed the printer’s devil, for the wrong christening of the Ministry of Happiness.
Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr Sam Onwuemeodo said a typographic error led to the naming of the Ministry as the Ministry of Happiness and Couples fulfilment.
It is now called “Ministry of Happiness and Purpose Fulfilment”.
“There was a typographic error in the first statement issued on the swearing in of the new commissioners. The word “Couple” was inadvertently written, instead of the word “Purpose,” we regret that.
The statement further justified the essence of the new Ministry and its purpose in the state.
“The real essence of life is to be happy and to fulfil one’s purpose in life; Government officials are elected to address this.
“Happiness and Purpose Fulfilment Ministry therefore, is established for the lost time to correct the policy framework to guide ministries and departments on what they must do to guarantee the citizens’ happiness and contribute better to the society.
“This is the very reason people elect their leaders: to guarantee their happiness and purpose fulfilment. A great leader therefore, is one who provides happiness to the people.
“Unfortunately, this vital element of our social lives has not been properly addressed. Governments at different levels have created several ministries and departments to achieve this, yet people are bitter, angry with hate speeches which lead to crisis, war and even terrorism”.
The statement also described the choice of Okorocha’s sister, Mrs Ogechi Ololo as the Supervisory Commissioner in charge of the ministry as a wise choice considering her experience in administration.
“The choice of Mrs Ogechi Ololo, a Masters Degree Holder in Computer Science, USA who has been the Deputy Chief of Staff to the Governor on Domestic Matters and Food Security can be described as a round peg in a round hole”.
