FG reacts to Asari Dokubo’s declaration of new Biafran leadership
The Federal Government has described the reported formation of Biafra Customary Government by Asari Dokubo as a “theatre of the absurd by a joker seeking attention’’.
Recall that Dokubo, leader of the Niger Delta Peoples Salvation Force announced himself, the leader of the new Biafra Customary Government.
The government was announced with the names of some leaders by one Uche Mefor, who claimed to be its head of information and communications.
But speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria on the development in Lagos on Monday, the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed said the President Muhammadu Buhari administration 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 phantom government, I think he is free to do so.
“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.
“We will just take 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 added.
