A total of 28 new commissioners and 27 Transition Committee Chairmen for the 27 local government councils in Imo state, were on Monday, sworn-in to office by Governor Owelle Rochas Okorocha as he charged them to prove their worth in the service of the state and her people.

According to a report by PUNCH Newspaper, one of the commissioners sworn-in by the governor is his biological sister, Mrs. Ogechi Ololo (nee Okorocha). She is now the state’s Commissioner for Happiness and Couples’ Fulfillment.

Ololo, who is married to Chuks, an engineer, was the All Progressives Congress’ 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 brother’s Deputy Chief of Staff  and Special Adviser on Domestic Matters.

The governor who swore-in the new commissioners and the Transition Committee Chairmen on Monday at the Imo International Convention Centre, Owerri, charged them to leave their marks in their respective ministries and local governments, and urged them to see themselves as men and women on a rescue mission.

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.”

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.
