Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr. Sam Onwuemeodo, said a typographic error led to the naming of the ministry as the Ministry of Happiness and Couples Fulfilment, rather than its proper nomenclature — Ministry of Happiness and Purpose Fulfilment.
“There was a typographic error in the first statement issued on the swearing-in of the new commissioners.
“The word “Couple” was inadvertently written, instead of the word “Purpose.” We regret that.”
The statement went on to justify the essence of the new ministry and its purpose in the state.
“The essence of life is to be happy and to fulfil one’s purpose in life. Government officials are elected to address this.
Happiness and Purpose Fulfilment Ministry, therefore, is established for the lost time to correct the policy framework to guide ministries and departments on what they must do to guarantee the citizens’ happiness and contribute better to the society.
“This is the very reason people elect their leaders: to guarantee their happiness and purpose fulfilment”.
