Dokubo: FG berates Niger-Delta leader over formation of Biafra Govt

The Federal Government has slammed the formation of the Biafra Customary Government by Asari Dokubo as a “theatre of the absurd by a joker seeking attention’’.

This was contained in a statement issued by the Minister of Information, and Culture, Lai Mohammed, said President Muhammadu Buhari 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. 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.
