'There was a typographic error' | Okorocha renames Ministry of Happiness

Nigeria's Imo State has again stirred up controversy after creating the Ministry of Happiness and Purpose Fulfilment which will be led by Governor Rochas Okorocha's sister.

The statement added that the "real essence of life is to be happy and to fulfil one's objective in life; Government officials are elected to address this".

"Years ago when the Keke people gave me a very resounding support, I promised you people that I will change you from three legged to four legged and for that reason, today marks the beginning of movement from tricycle to full vehicle".

While she did not say exactly how the ministry will solve provide these, she did say that is what the policy of happiness means.

Before her recent appointment, she served in the capacity of Deputy Chief of Staff and Special Adviser on Domestic Matters in his administration.

She is now the state's Commissioner for Happiness and Couples' Fulfillment.

"Unfortunately, this vital element of our social lives has not been properly addressed".

There's no official word yet on what her responsibilities, or salary, will be. "Governments at different levels have created several ministries and departments to achieve this, yet people are bitter, angry with hate speeches which lead to crisis, war and even terrorism".

The governor advised the appointees to work as if they have only a few weeks to deliver and leave their marks in their areas of work.

"In today's world, especially in our country, millions of people are not fulfilling their goal in life because of lack of mentorship and guidance".

"Sometimes in university environments, students are meant to study courses they ordinarily would like to do".

Commissioner of Happiness, Ogechi Ololo is unapologetic of the post as it has been met with derision by people across the world.

The Commissioner said the mandate of her office includes ensuring citizens of Imo state remain happy despite the economic meltdown and Biafran fiasco.

The Ministry of Education was also split into three ministries: Primary and Secondary, Tertiary Non-Formal Education, ICT, Science and Technology.
