Buhari Govt Derides Dokubo’s Declaration Of Biafra, Calls Him Attention Seeker

The Government of Muhammadu Buhari has downplayed the declaration of a new Biafra Customary Government by Asari Dokubo as a “theatre of the absurd by a joker seeking attention’’.

The minister of information and culture, Mr. Lai Mohammed said this to the News Agency of Nigeria on Monday, noting that President Buhari’s government will not be distracted by the absurdity.

He said, “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.

Dokubo had on Sunday announced himself as the leader of the new Biafra Customary Government.

He also named other interim officials, which included Uche Mefor, as head of information and communications.
