According to a report by Daily Post, Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State, Sunday, scored the Federal Government very poor in terms of addressing poverty in the nation.
Okorocha said 89 percent of Nigerians were not happy, noting that the vital expect of human existence had not been addressed in the country.
Governor Okorocha disclosed this in a statement in Owerri, through his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Sam Onwuemeodo, when officers of the Nigeria Air Force led by the Air Officer Commanding Ground Training Command, AVM Sampson Akpasa visited him, at Government House.
On the governor’s scorecard for the Federal Government, according to the statement, Governor Rochas Okorocha had said 89 percent of Nigerians were not happy in the real sense of the word happiness and that only four percent could really be said to be happy to some extents, while seven percent might claim to be happy, adding that the vital aspect of human existence which is happiness must be addressed.
“Let me 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 you.
“Agitation comes up when people are not happy and the whole essence of life is to be happy.
“For this reason, I will advise the Air Force to, just as I have done recently, which most people didn’t understand, create a department for Happiness and Purpose Fulfilment.
“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.”
