- The Nigerian federal government has been asked by Tofa not to ignore Asari Dokubo
- Recall that Dokubo recently announced himself as the leader of BCG
- Tofa said that it is only the unwise that will ignore him
The Nigerian government has been warned over the Biafra Customary Government (BCG) proclaimed by Alhaji Asari Dokubo, the leader of the Niger Delta Peoples Salvation Force (NDPSF).
The call was made by an elder statesman, Alhaji Bashir Othman Tofa.
Speaking on the development, Alhaji Tofa, said:
“Alhaji Asari Dokubo may be considered as a joker by the unwise. What if his utterance is only an early stage in a larger plan? Threats to this country should not be taken as a joke.”
He said he wondered if the FG would have maintained such a position if it had been someone from the North who said a fraction of what Dokubo said, Daily Trust reports.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that the federal government has described the reported formation of Biafra Customary Government by Asari Dokubo as a “theatre of the absurd by a joker seeking attention’’.
Speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria on the development in Lagos on Monday, the Minister of Information, and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, said the President, Muhammadu Buhari (retd.)’s regime 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.
