Those who are familiar with the entertainment industry in Imo State, particularly; the plights of active participants or major players in the sector, ranging from actors, DJ, comedians, musicians and others, can testify that; obviously there is a significant improvement in the entertainment industry. The era of factions are now over, above all there is a united and formidable leadership of various groups in the entertainment sector and they are operating under a harmonious environment with unity of purpose
According to William PollardIt ‘ without change there is no innovation, creativity, or incentive for improvement. Those who initiate change will have a better opportunity to manage the change that is inevitable’. It is on record that before he took over the mantle of leadership , many groups like the DJ’s Association, Hip-Hop, Highlife, models and dancers, were scattered without proper organization, but through his sound leadership qualities as a team player, a well comported and organized personality, he reached out to all, harmonized their differences and organized them into formidable groups, now they are operating under a harmonious atmosphere with unity of purpose. This action and singular effort made by Hon. Iruno was indeed a welcome development that heralded the new era for entertainment sector.

According to Iruno ‘ no matter how good a job is, if it does not get to the final consumer for whom they were designed you have not done a good job. I have arrange a program with on air personality, media, publishers, I try to bring them in synergy with the artists so that when we do a good job, it will be properly projected and the required maximum publicity will be given to it. We have been able to try to hook up our local artist with the major players in the industry in Nigeria outside Imo State and that motivated us to organize the Imo got talent fiesta. The Imo got talent fiesta led to the emergency of some artist who have been endorsed as record label’
In line with his Excellency’s view to have a rallying point for all the artists in Imo State and others in entertainment sector, the Bongo Square was made available to Imo artists as a rallying point for their meetings and arrival point before they take off on any journey, or other activities. The Bongo Square is now a gathering point for all the artists in Imo State, if you go to Bongo Square every evening you will see one individual or group doing what they know how to do best.
The industry is made up of human and physical infrastructures. It is worthy to point out that the infrastructures and other facilities put in place by the workaholic governor are playing complimentary roles. Imo State is an emerging hub of entertainment in Nigeria. The SA is wisely and strategically leveraging on them to play up the sector and maximize potentials of the actors.

February 26th 2018, will remain another unforgettable day of pains and sorrows for the family members of Augustina Mbonu, her children and her aged mother of about 92 years old, It was just three days after they buried the eldest son of the family, the only well do to member of the family. As they were still in a mournful mood, Uloma Opara, the daughter of one of their kingsman and a serving police officer with her parent and siblings decided to unleash mayhem on them,

On that faithful day, this serving police officer who has always jubilated and mocked them openly said now their helper and eldest brother is no longer alive, she will fulfill her threats and prove to them that she means what she has always threatened.

Trouble started on that faithful day when Precious, the child of Augustina was washing clothes, immediately Uloma Opara sighted her, she ordered her brother Chiazo to reverse his keke and hit precious, an order he carried out with impunity.

Uloma who has been threathning thunder and fire demonstrated it when she also ordered her siblings to beat Precious, her mother Augusina and their family members for daring to question her order.

They descended heavily on the family, beat them up mercilessly and gave them a hot chase with knives and sticks out of their family house. As the beating was going on, Uloma the police officer released about three gun shots, which chased people away, Uloma’s parents also joined their children to unleash mayhem on this innocent and helpless family that is still mourning irreparable loss of their own.

After they were done with the merciless beating, they proceeded and demolished the shop of Augustina Mbanu, a food vendor with goods worth N450.000, they equally demolished some portion of their house through the window, from there they entered the house and looted every item people brought for condolence visit, including cash worth millions of naira.

As they ran away for their dear lives , due to the seriousness of the beating, their aged mother who could not escaped with them were trapped in the house, any attempt they made to return home so as to take care of their aged mother were vehemently resisted, immediately they sight them in the compound they will give them a hot chase with knives and sticks, this ugly development made the aged mother to suffer malnutrition and eventually became sick because there was nobody in the house to take care of her. She only survives by the mercy of sympathizers who occasionally bring food to her.

Frustrated by the level of pains inflicted on her by her oppressors, she officially reported to police but nothing good came out of it. Unfortunately: Uloma Opara used her influence as a serving police officer to manipulate every process of investigation and distort every attempt made to arrest any member of her family involved in the wicked act.

At the police station Agustina Mbonu paid several amounts of money to the police officers handling the matter based on their request and directives. After committing such huge amount of money without any result she became more, tired, frustrated, dejected and demoralised.

However: help came her way when somebody told her about the good works of Supervisory Commissioner, Ministry of Happiness and Purpose Fulfillment, Mrs Ogechi Ololo, how she has intervened in many similar cases and how the ministry is spreading happiness through their good works.

When she came and narrated her ordeal, to Mrs Ololo, she swung into action with her team of investigators, comprising lawyers, media aide and other staffers of the ministry to verify the authenticity of her report, surprisingly most of the things she said were real, immediately it was confirmed, she instructed the lawyers to take legal action against the perpetrators of this heinous crime surely they will not go unpunished, she reached out to Imo State Commissioner of police and contacted the legal team of the Ministry so that justice will prevail.

The Supervisory Commissioner equally took the aged mother to general hospital for urgent medical attention.

Today she has given them hope and the helpless family has received help from the Ministry of Happiness and Purpose Fulfilment.

Thanks to Hinourable Mrs Ogechi Ololo the workaholic Commissioner for the good job she is doing at the Ministry of Happiness and Purpose Fufillment.

Thanks to Imo State Governor Owelle Anayo Richas Okorocha for creating this wonderful ministry

To God be the glory

Imo is now better.
