The Federal Government of Nigeria has described the formation of a new Biafran Government by former militant leader, Alhaji Mujahid Asari-Dokubo, as an entertaining joke.
The FG described Asari-Dokubo as a joker seeking attention.
Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the Minister of Information and Culture, while speaking on Monday in Lagos, said that 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 thing.
“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.
