Nigerian Twitter Thrashes Okorocha For Appointing Sister Commissioner For Happiness
Rochas Okorocha, governor of Imo State has been in the news recently for various reasons. After receiving a backlash from Nigerians for erecting statues of Liberian president, Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf and South African president, Jacob Zuma, who is currently facing corruption charges, Okorocha, has once more, become the focus of Nigerians.
His appointment of his biological Mrs Ogechi Ololo as Commissioner For Happiness and Couples Fulfilment in Imo State is deemed an aberration.
Ololo is among the newly sworn in 28 commissioners and 27 Transition Committee Chairmen for the 27 local councils in the state.
Before her appointment as commissioner, she served as the deputy chief, domestic and internal affairs, in Okorocha administration.
But Nigerian Twitter thinks the appointment is one big joke.
Rochas Okorocha of Imo State appoints Mrs. Ogechi Ololo as the Commissioner for “Happiness and Couples’ Fulfillment”. If there was any doubt that Okorocha is a total misfit, he cleared it today.

Some Nigerians view this appointment as a distraction from the #EndSARS campaign
See how Rochas by making his sister commissioner for happiness has redefined nepotism for Nigerians and set her up for national insult!
Rochas nice try but you cannot distract us.#EndSARS
