Okorocha appoints sister commissioner for Happiness and Couples' Fulfillment

This is what Nigerians in the South-eastern state of Imo are grappling with after their, Governor Rochas Okorocha, appointed his sister, Ogechi Ololo, as the commissioner for happiness and couples' fulfilment.

"There are also many people out there that need our service", Ololo told BBC Africa. This is a new ministry and people don't understand, so they have the right to ask these questions.

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

Punch reports that Ololo, who is married to Chuks, an engineer, was the All Progressives Congress' candidate into the House of Representatives for the Owerri Federal Constituency seat in 2015 and she has served in various capacities since Okorocha became the state governor in 2011.

The statement issued by his chief press secretary, Sam Onwuemeodo, Okorocha also justified the essence of the new ministry, its objective and the choice of his sister to head it.

Others, according to her, "include ensuring couples in Imo State have a reduced divorce rate and better fulfilled marriages and cater to welfare for the average Imo indigene".

Before her new appointment, she served as the governor's deputy chief of staff and special adviser on domestic matters.

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

He explained that contrary to viral news on the matter, the new office that was created by the Imo state government was the Ministry of Happiness and Purpose Fulfillment and not the Ministry of Happiness and Couples fulfillment as earlier reported.

It is now to be known as the Ministry of Happiness and Purpose Fulfilment.
