Rochas Okorocha, Governor of Imo State, says civil servants who are yet to receive their payments for November and December should direct their complaints to the Ministry of Happiness and Purpose Fulfillment.
This was contained in a statement issued by Nnamdi Obiaraeri, the State Commissioner for Information, who further added that the move was a demonstration of Okorocha’s resolve to ensure that workers in the state have a stress-free Christmas celebration.
“This is to announce that the Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, has approved the immediate payment of the November and December 2017 salaries of Imo workers,” the statement read.
“This is to enable our esteemed Imo workers to celebrate seamless Christmas. Payments have duly commenced.
“Any worker encountering any difficulties with the approved payments should not hesitate to contact the Ministry of Happiness and Purpose Fulfillment for immediate intervention.”
The newly-created ministry of happiness and purpose fulfillment in Imo State, headed by Ogechi Ololo, Okorocha’s biological sister, has generated heated controversy among Nigerians, as many believe the ministry is not necessary.
