The federal government has reacted to former militant leader, Asari Dokubo’s proclamation of a new Biafran government and declaration of himself as the government’s leader.
LIB had reported that Dokubo in a statement released by his new government’s Head of Information and Communications Uche Mefor, named those who would serve as leaders of the Biafra Customary Government.
Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed who commented on the development on Monday March 15 said the President Muhammadu Buhari administration will not be distracted by the absurdity of such actions.
“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.”
