The minister of information and culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed has described the report of the formation of a ‘Biafra Customary Government’ by former Niger Delta Warlord, Mujadeen Asari Dokubo as “a theatre of the absurd by a joker seeking attention.”
Alhaji Mohammed who spoke in Lagos on Monday 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,” he said
“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 said.
Alhaji Mohammed’s reaction follows the recent declaration by the former leader of the Niger Delta Peoples Salvation about the formation of a new body which will take care of the insecurity and other challenges faced by the Igbo as well as focus on the deployment of science and technology to make life better for his people.
