Lagos, Nigeria (CNN)The pursuit of happiness just became one step easier for citizens of Imo State in southeast Nigeria.
Thanks to their governor, they now have a dedicated official to oversee their "happiness and purpose fulfillment."
Governor Rochas Okorocha named the official, who just happens to be his sister, during a swearing in ceremony on Monday.
Ogechi Ololo was initially named 'Commissioner of Happiness and Couples Fulfillment," much to the delight of social media users who wondered exactly what the function of this new role would be.
A day later, the governor's office issued a correction to say that the correct title would be "Supervisory Commissioner for Happiness and Purpose Fulfillment".
Media officer for the state, Chuks Nwokeji, said: "Unfortunately, her portfolio was erroneously published as 'Commissioner of Happiness and Couples Fulfillment' in various media as a result of lacuna of information."
"Mischief makers and others without sound moral upbringing capitalized on it to do what they know how to do best," he added.
Full details on what she will do in the role have yet to emerge but another aide issued a statement that the ministry will "guide ministries and departments on what they must do to guarantee the citizens' happiness and contribute better to the society."
The appointment itself has been met with ridicule on social media sites as Nigerians weighed in on what the role actually means and the ethics of the Governor appointing his own sister to the role.
