AS REACTIONS continue to
greet the creation of Ministry
of Happiness and Couples
Fulfilment by Governor
Rochas Okorocha and the
subsequent appointment of
his sister, Mrs. Ogechi Ololo, as
the commissioner, prominent
indigenes of Imo State have
come hard on the governor for
his “strange decision.”
Reacting to the development
while speaking to newsmen
in Abuja on Wednesday, the
immediate past governor of
the state, Chief Ikedi Ohakim
described the creation as an

abomination. How can this
man continue to insult the
sensibilities of Imo citizens?
Whose happiness are they
looking for when salaries and

“I have not heard about
such a ministry anywhere
in the world, before. It is
not in Britain that gave us
independence. It is not in the
United States of America,
whose democratic system we

nowhere in West Africa.
“I have searched through
the internet and I am still
searching to see where it
was practised and couldn’t
find any. Honestly, this is a
bizarre creation and I won’t
be surprised to see the
Governor’s aides struggling
to defend this indefensible act.
“Deliverance is what
Okorocha needs for his rescue
mission. Someone somewhere
is mentally challenged. We
pray for help before more than
one runs amok.”
Also reacting, a former
deputy speaker of the House of
Representatives, Chief Emeka
Ihedioha in a terse statement
said he was completely tired
of talking about Governor
“Honestly, I am completely
tired of talking about
this man and his style of
administration. You can be
sure that before we finish
talking about the creation of
Ministry of Happiness, he
will come with a more bizarre
thing,” Ihedioha said.
