Nigeria In One Minute

Six weeks after, Imo Ministry of Happiness has no office, staff



Barely six weeks after Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State established the Ministry of Happiness and Purpose Fulfillment headed by his sister, Ogechi Ololo, the ministry is yet to secure an office.

Similarly, Ololo is yet to get additional staff drafted to her to build the new ministry.
She is still working from her office as Deputy Chief of Staff (Domestic) and using her former staff which is a little more than half a dozen.

However, there are indications that the Ministry of Happiness and Purpose Fulfillment, which many believe to have been established by executive fiat, is making arrangement to secure office space at the Trade and Investment Centre, new Owerri.

Presently, there are no directors and no Permanent Secretary deployed to the Ministry. As such, it may be an uphill task drafting government workers, whose job title and specification have to be spelt out, to the ministry.
