So, Dubai has a Minister of Happiness??
Saudi Arabia appointed its first Minister of Happiness in 2016. The Minister of Happiness was tasked with overseeing “plans, projects, programs [and] indices” that improve the country’s overall mood.
Her appointment was announced by Prime Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum in a series of tweets.

May be we should stop tackling Governor Rochas Okorocha for the time being. I only have issues with him appointing his sister
That wasn’t the only curiously named role in the Prime Minister’s lineup—he also appointed a new Minister of State for Tolerance and changed the Ministry of Cabinet Affairs to a more forward-leaning label:
The Ministry of Cabinet Affairs, tasked with future strategies, becomes the Ministry of Cabinet Affairs and The Future.#WorldGovSummit
