The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has mocked Niger Delta activist, Asari Dokubo over his purported formation of the so-called Biafra Customary Government, describing him as a joker seeking undue attention.
The Minister stated this today, Monday, in Lagos, adding that President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration 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 fantom 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.
One Uche Mefor, who claimed to be the head of Information and Communications of the fantom Biafra Customary government, had in an announcement, named Dokubo as the head of the government.
