The Federal Government of Nigeria has termed the Asari Dokubo Formation of the Biafra Customary Government as an entertainment.
The Federal Government said, they took the formation as one of this entertainment things.
The Nigeria Government dismissed the purported formation of another version of the Biafra agitation by an ex-militant leader, Mujahid Asari Dokubo, describing the move as a “theatre of the absurd by a joker seeking attention’’.
Recall that at the weekend, Mr Dokubo had birthed Biafra defacto Customary Government, BCG, announcing himself as the leader of the new version of the Biafra agitation.
In a statement by the spokesperson of the customary government Uche Mefor, Mr Dokubo had attributed the injustice and marginalisation on the Igbos found in various zones of the country as the reason for aspiring for a “better life for his people”.
Reacting, the minister, while speaking with News Agency of Nigeria on the development in Lagos on Monday, said the President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration would 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.
