The Imo State Government has defended the decision of the state Governor, Rochas Okorocha in creating a Ministry of Happiness and defending this appointment, the Commissioner for Information, Professor Nnamdi Obiaraeri said the action was in line with Sections 1 and 92 of the 1999 Constitution (as amended).


Rochas Okorocha had on Tuesday announced the appointment of his biological younger sister, Mrs. Ogechi Ololo (nee Okorocha) as Commissioner for Happiness and Purpose Fulfillment in the state, which however received widespread criticism by eminent Nigerians over the controversial decision.

Defending his principal, Obiaraeri said the governor did not violate any section of the constitution; rather, his aim was to serve the people of his state better.

According to the commissioner for information, “The responsibility of the governor to create more ministries as clearly captured in Section (1) and (92) subsection (2). So, it is the prerogative of the governor of a state, out of overriding public interest to create as many ministries as possible to serve the public interest,” he said on Channels Television’s Politics Today.

“What the Governor of Imo State has done in creating the Ministry of Happiness and Purpose Fulfilment is to be able to assist Imo people to realize happiness which is the very primary essence of government.”

The state’s mouthpiece further explained that the essence of the newly carved out ministry was to ensure that lives and destinies were being fulfilled in the eastern heartland, adding, “Imo people must be happy. Imo people must be made to fulfil their purpose in life. The young school leavers who are out there in the street must be made to be mentored”.

“The young apprentices that we have all over the place, the 305 youth millionaires that have created by this government, the women that have been empowered must be made to realize their purpose in life.”
