"There Was a Typographical Error": Okorocha Renames Ministry of Happiness And Couple's Fulfilment

Share This

Governor of Imo State Rochas Okorocha has renamed the Ministry of Happiness and Couple’s Fulfillment to Ministry of Happiness and Purpose Fulfillment.

Mr Sam Onwuemeddo, the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor told reporters that: “There was a typographic error in the first Statement issued on the swearing in of the new Commissioners. The word “couple” was inadvertently written of the word “purpose.” We regret that.”

The press secretary also explained the purpose of the ministry and why it was important: “The real essence of life is to be happy and to fulfil one’s purpose in life; Government officials are elected to address this.

Happiness and purpose Fulfilment Ministry therefore, is established…to correct the policy framework , to guide Ministries and departments on what they must do to guarantee the citizens’ happiness and contribute better to the society.

“This is the very reason people elect their leaders to guarantee their happiness and purpose fulfilment. A great leader therefore, is one who provides happiness to the people."

“Unfortunately, this vital element of our social lives has not been properly addressed. Government 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.”

One of the issues most have with the Ministry, apart from the name and the role it is meant to play in a society riddled with poverty, was the choice of the Governors sister as Commissioner. The statement also addressed that.

“The choice of Mrs Ogechi Ololo, a Masters Degree holder in Computer Science, USA, who has been the Deputy Chief of Staff to the Governor on Domestic Matters and Food Security can be described as a round peg in a round hole.

“Before her appointment as the supervisory commissioner, she was charged with the Federal Government on N-Power Project, CBN Anchor Project and BOI, Employment Projects.”
