Senator representing Imo West, ROCHAS OKOROCHA, has called for the creation of Federal Ministry of Happiness to curtail the rising rate of suicide in Nigeria.
The former Governor in 2017, created the Ministry of Happiness and Purpose Fulfilment in Imo State much to the surprise of Nigerians who questioned the need and function of such ministry.
Speaking on a motion on the subject at the plenary, OKOROCHA said every case of suicide could be traced to unhappiness among the people.
He prayed the Senate to allow him to present on another legislative day a motion seeking the creation of Ministry of Happiness.
Meanwhile, the Deputy Senate Leader, AJAYI BORROFICE, said the federal government should establish counselling centres instead of a Ministry Happiness.
