Following the Ministry of Happiness and Marriage Fulfillment, including his insistence that many Nigerians were unhappy, Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, has recommended that ‘Happiness 101’ be introduced as a course in tertiary institutions in Nigeria.
Okorocha said this in an interview with Vanguard newspapers while explaining the reason behind creation of Ministry of happiness in the state.
He suggested that “Happiness 101” should be introduced as a course in the country’s educational curriculum.
“I am elected governor to guarantee the happiness of the people. Even the American constitution was created for the pursuit of happiness.
“I have realised that 89 percent of Nigerians are not happy.
“The ministry of happiness is the number one ministry that every government in the world should establish before establishing any other ministry because it reflects the essence of life, the essence of government.
“Some went to research on it only to discover they have it in Dubai and other countries.
“Even my own type of happiness is more spiritual and in-depth than those ones.
“In fact, there should be a course in the primary, secondary and even university called Happiness.
“Yes, Happiness 101. You know why? Because, sometimes, you can be rich and not happy”, he said.
