Okorocha says agitation comes up when people are not happy

…advises Air Force to create Department for ‘Happiness and Purpose Fulfillment’
Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has said that agitation comes up when people are not happy. He therefore, advised the Air Force to create a Department for Happiness and Purpose Fulfillment.
Okorocha was speaking during a visit by air force personnel, led by the Air Officer Commanding Ground Training Command, Sampson Akpasa, in Owerri.
According to the Governor, 89 per cent of Nigerians are unhappy ‘in the real sense of the word happiness’.
“Only four per cent of Nigerians could really be happy to some extent, while seven per cent might claim to be happy.”
He added that the vital aspect of human existence, which is happiness, must be addressed.
“Agitations, insurgence, hate-speeches and the likes, come up when people are unhappy”, said the governor.
“I thank you for your efforts in bringing Regiment 211 to Imo State. In appreciation, we have donated a 200-bed hospital to the force. This morning I spoke to the Chief of Air Force, about our intention to also donate the school to train electricians and artisans; you are doing a wonderful job.”
Okorocha urged the air force officials to find the root cause of agitation in the country while fighting insurgency.
“Agitation comes up when people are not happy, and the whole essence of life is to be happy. For this reason, I will advise that the Air Force too, just like I did recently, which most people didn’t understand, should create a department for Happiness and Purpose Fulfillment.
“This will help to address the need of even junior officers, who may have some forms of dissatisfaction in the discharge of their duties. Sometimes, you may think they are happy when they are not, and this sabotages the efforts of the Federal Government,” Okorocha said.
He said mentorship is another aspect which can help people achieve their purpose in life.
“If people are happy, there will be less agitation. The amount of money we spend on aircraft and in the purchase of arms would have reduced by 50 per cent. This could also end issues of restructuring, Niger Delta and all other forms of agitations”, he said.
Earlier, Air Officer Commanding Ground Training Command, Sampson Akpasa said they came on a familiarisation tour of the constituent security outfits established on July 3. He added that Enugu was carved out of other commands due to clumsy administration, and that their new training ground has helped handle insurgency in the North-east.
Sampson identified collaboration and synergy as key in all security challenges. He craved for more cooperation in Imo and other South-east states, saying the command needs every form of support to blossom into maturity and global excellence.

…Confers Matron award on Hon. Ololo
A group under the aegis of Niger Delta Women Peace Movement has commenced moves to enthrone whoever Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State would anoint as his successor, ahead 2019 general elections.
This was revealed, Tuesday when the leadership of the group paid a courtesy call on the Governor’s Deputy Chief of Staff, Domestics Hon Mrs. Ogechi Ololo.
The group which executives comprise of 10 women from each of the 305 wards in the state, enjoys the support and fellowship of their counterparts in other Niger Delta states.
Speaking at the parley, the State Representative and APC State Woman Leader, Lady Tessy Ohanuba said they came to appreciate Hon Ogechi Ololo, whom she described as a result-oriented person and also to handover the group to her for proper guidance and direction.
Her words, “We have come to appreciate you and also handover Niger Delta Women Peace Movement to you, so that you will direct the women in Owerri zone. Whoever our Governor, Owelle Anayo Rochas Okorocha anoints as his successor will enjoy overwhelming support from the women.”
The founder of the group and General Manager Imo Housing Corporation Prince Dr. Henry Okafor who joined the parley later, noted that the group believed that Governor Okorocha has done so much for the state, hence the need to have one of his ‘children’ continue from where he stopped.
“But for Nigerian constitution, what we will be talking about now is, Owelle go for third term”, Prince Okafor said.
Responding, Hon. Mrs. Ogechi Ololo thanked the women and the founder of the group for deferring their engagements just to honour her. She noted that Owerri zone is exceptional and urged the women to match their words with action through prayers.
Hon Ololo remarked that Governor Okorocha does not believe in man-know-man syndrome.
“He picks at random and makes nobody to be somebody”, she added.
“We owe it to Imo citizens to prove that any man chosen by His Excellency was chosen by God. Such person must be fearful and should possess the zeal to continue with the good works of His Excellency”, she concluded.
The highpoint of the meeting was the conferment of Matron award on Hon. Mrs. Ogechi Ololo.
