Okorocha urges Air Force to create happiness department, says 89% Nigerians unhappy

Gibson Achonu, Owerri

Imo State Governor Rochas Okorocha has said that 89 per cent of Nigerians are not truly happy, maintaining that only “four per cent could really be happy to some extent,”  while “seven per cent might claim to be happy.”

He argued that the vital aspect of human existence, which is happiness, must be addressed.

Okorocha, who recently created the Ministry of Happiness and Purpose Fulfillment, made the claim when officers of the Nigeria Air Force, led by the Air Officer Commanding Ground Training Command, Air Vice Marshal Sampson Akpasa, visited him at the Government House at the weekend.

Okorocha said agitations, insurgence, and hate-speech come up when people are not happy.

He said, “I commend the Nigeria Air Force for the good job they are doing in this country, especially their fight against insurgency and currently, what is happening in Numan and all the efforts they are making to restore peace in that area. I’m particularly proud of the Nigerian Air Force.

“But one thing is certain, if you observe recently, the level of crisis and agitations are on the increase. While we fight insurgence, I would advise that we also should find the cause of this agitation.

“Agitation comes up when people are not happy and the whole essence of life is to be happy. For this reason, I advice that the Air Force too, just like what I have done recently, which most people didn’t understand, should create a department for Happiness and Purpose Fulfillment.

“This will help to address the need of even junior officers, who may have some forms of dissatisfaction in the discharge of their duties.

“Sometimes, you may think that they are happy when they are not and this sabotages the efforts of the Federal Government,” the governor counselled.

“In Imo State, we have introduced the Ministry of Happiness and Purpose Fulfillment.

“I urge the Air Force to emulate what we are doing in Imo State to let everyone have a sense of belonging,” Okorocha added.

In his speech, Akpasa commended Okorocha for what he termed “the tremendous transformation” his administration has recorded in the state.

He said they had come on familiarization tour of the constituent security outfits established on July 3, 2017, adding that their new training ground has helped to handle insurgency in the North-East.
