The Federal Government of Nigeria reacted to the formation of a Biafra Customary Government by Asari Dokubo.
Reacting to Dokubo's statement, the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed while speaking to newsmen in Lagos on Monday described Dokubo as a “theatre of the absurd by a joker seeking attention’’.
Lai Mohammed added that President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration will not be distracted by the absurdity, adding that the government will not give any attention or time to Dokubo.
“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.
“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 said.
