Ex-governor of Imo State, Ikedi Ohakim has reacted to the appointment of a commissioner of happiness and couples fulfilment by the present governor, Rochas Okorocha.
Okorochas recently drew widespread criticism after he appointed his sister, Mrs Ogechi Ololo, as commissioner for happiness and couples fulfilment. Ohakim believes that Okorocha needs spiritual deliverance for the ‘strange decision’. He also described the appointment as an ‘Abomination’.
“This is a sort of abomination. How can this man continue to insult the sensibilities of Imo citizens? Whose happiness are they looking for when salaries and pensions are not paid? Are we looking for the happiness of the Okorocha family and friends?
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 copied. It is not in Canada. It is 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.”
