EDIT: A friend told me this news is false. Read what he said really happened here.
Read my previous report below.
Nigeria’s statue-loving governor Rochas Okorocha is in the news again for reasons his countrymen don’t seem to approve.
The Imo State chief executive just named his sister “commissioner for happiness”.
Ogechi Ololo is one of the 28 commissioners Okorocha just sworn in.
She’s married to Chuks Ololo who was the All Progressives Congress’ (APC) candidate for the House of Representatives for the Owerri Federal Constituency seat in 2015.
She has been around government since Okorocha, her biological brother, became governor in 2011. She previously served as deputy chief of staff and as special adviser on domestic matters.
She is now the state’s Commissioner for Happiness and Couples’ Fulfillment.
Okorocha angered many Nigerians, made some laugh even, after erecting a statue in honour of South African president Jacob Zuma.
The latest development is not making anyone happy either…well, minus those who will benefit from this development.
