The federal government has dismissed with the wave of the hand the reported formation of Biafra Customary Government by Asari Dokubo describing it as a “theatre of the absurd by a joker seeking attention’
The Minister of Information, and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed who spoke with the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos on Monday, said the President, Muhammadu Buhari government will not be distracted by the absurdity.
“I am sure you have heard of the theatre of the absurd, that is the best way I can describe it. If Asari Dokubo wants to form and run a fathom government, I think he is free to do so,” Alhaji Mohammed said.
He also added, “this administration will not be distracted because we still have a lot to do. We are not ready to give any attention or time to a joker like Dokubo who is just looking for attention.
The Information Minister said the FG will accept it as one of these entertainment things.
“The beauty about Nigeria is that it is never a dull country, you must have one thing or the other to entertain you,’’ he said.
Dokubo, leader of the Niger Delta Peoples Salvation Force declared himself the leader of the new Biafra Customary Government.
One Uche Mefor who claimed to be the information and communications head of the new Biafra Customary Government announced some names as key leaders.
