IT IS ONE YEAR TODAY, HURRAY!

IT IS ONE YEAR TODAY, HURRAY!
ICHEOKU says congratulations to President Donald John Trump for successfully steering America's ship of States for a full year. What the naysayers said will not happen is a reality which they are finding extremely difficult to live with. But their preferences notwithstanding, Make America Great Again is on course and nobody will torpedo it. Once again, congratulations to the leader of Team MAGA on the anniversary of his being sworn in as the 45th POTUS.

PRESIDENT TRUMP IN EXCELLENT HEALTH

PRESIDENT TRUMP IN EXCELLENT HEALTH.

ICHEOKU says he submitted himself to the Walter Reed National hospital for a three and half hours medical examination which included his requested, but not required, mental acuity test. The president passed excellently well and aced his IQ test 30/30. ICHEOKU says yet another nail on the coffin of the fake book Fire and Fury hatchet job which had claimed unfounded story about the president's mental health. But will the possessed far left media hordes now take their chill pill and let the president be? Your guess is as good as ICHEOKU's. ICHEOKU says congratulations President Donald John Trump for once again shaming your traducers. It is now all the way live to 2020 and a second term assured victory.


ICHEOKU'S MAN OF THE YEAR 2017: PRESIDENT DONALD JOHN TRUMP

ICHEOKU says following an examination of so many nominated individuals, we have determined that this year 2017's man of the year is President Donald John Trump, the 45th President of the United States of America. He came into office shooting on both hips and as the year draws to an end, his both guns are still firing and smoking. For standing up to the world and starring down American detractors and being the cheerleader and champion in chief of America, the leader of Team Make America Great Again has earned ICHEOKU's man of the year award 2017. Congratulations to President Donald John Trump.

JERUSALEM IS ISRAEL'S ETERNAL CAPITAL - PDJT

JERUSALEM IS ISRAEL'S ETERNAL CAPITAL - PDJT
ICHEOKU says a wisdom of Solomon come to judgment; it is about time the child is given to the rightful mother. Salute to the courage of President Donald John Trump.

PRINCE HARRY AND MEGHAN MARKLE ARE ENGAGED: HURRAY!

ICHEOKU says they look nice together and hopefully the crazy media and their paparazzi hordes will let them be and not force them into a life of misery or accidentally run them off the cliff. Lady Di's tragic experience is still painfully fresh till this day and no one, not ICHEOKU, wants to relive or experience such awfulness again, NEVER again. May God protect and bless the duo as they take their baby steps into the journey of of so many unknown absurdities called marriage. All the best Harry and Meghan.


AMERICA STRONG!

"Together with our allies, America's warriors are prepared to defend our nation using the full range of our unmatched capabilities. No one — no dictator, no regime and no nation — should underestimate, ever, American resolve."


RUSSIAN COLLUSION: EVIDENCE FOUND!

RUSSIAN COLLUSION: EVIDENCE EMERGES!

ICHEOKU says Queen Crooked Hillary Clinton was caught pants down colluding with the Russians and she has been trying so hard to pull the wool over the eyes of American people over whodunnit. What a lying, contriving, manipulative woman who lies so easily that you wonder whether truth actually exists in her lexicon. Pitiful.

RUSSIAN DOSSIER: PAID FOR BY HILLARY CLINTON

RUSSIAN DOSSIER: PAID FOR BY CLINTON

ICHEOKU says finally the circle is about being completed and American people and the world at large will come to know who in fact did the collusion. Queen Crooked Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Congress paid Fusion GPS to produce the fake Russian dossier which former CIA chief James Clapper said was the basis for the Trump investigation. Yet, the investigation is still ongoing, despite the now established fact that the basis of it was a manufactured phony. But hey, we shall see.


ICHEOKU says still wondering WHAT HAPPENED and the reason 33,000 emails were deleted and bleach washed? Hopefully American people will soon confirm their suspicion that those shouting themselves hoax with Russian Collusion might indeed be the ones who actually colluded with the Russians. So much for the Russian Reset button. Queen Crooked Hillary Clinton, simply too crooked.


GLAD TO BE CARRIED TO FULL TERM.

GRATEFUL TO BE CARRIED FULL TERM

ICHEOKU says another lucky one that survived the abortionist's pincers from the over 360,000 unlucky ones that get flushed out each year. May God help us all have a better resolution about unwanted pregnancies.


JUST SAY NO TO KNEELING: IT IS UN-AMERICAN.

JUST SAY NO TO KNEELING: IT IS UN-AMERICAN.
ICHEOKU says from being disrespectful to the flag to being unappreciative of the services of the military to overall being anti America; NFL players must learn to check their political activism outside the stadiums. They must not kneel on our dime. ICHEOKU supports the president 1000% on this and hereby calls on every player to respect the sensibilities of the many differently opined fans who paid to watch a game and not to be made mad by their personal political agenda.

IPOB: NOT A TERRORIST ORGANIZATION - USA


“The United States Government is strongly committed to Nigeria’s unity. Important political and economic issues affecting the Nigerian people, such as the allocation of resources, are worthwhile topics for respectful debate in a democracy. Within the context of unity, we encourage all Nigerians to support a de-escalation of tensions and peaceful resolution of grievances. The Indigenous People of Biafra is not a terrorist organization under US law.” - Russell Brooks, United States of America.

ROCKET MAN; ON A SUICIDE MISSION.



"The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea. Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime. The United States is ready, willing and able, but hopefully this will not be necessary. That’s what the United Nations is all about; that’s what the United Nations is for. Let’s see how they do." - PDJT


DONATE TODAY TO HELP REBUILD LIVES!

DONATE TODAY TO HELP REBUILD LIVES!

ICHEOKU says the Red Cross does one heck of a good job going to the assistance of the needy; so in these times of great need, occasioned by so many hurricanes, flooding and earthquake, show that you really care, donate to help the victims rebuild their wrecked lives. Remember that the Almighty rewards a cheerful giver.

HILLARY CLINTON LOST THE ELECTION - CHARLES SCHUMER

HILLARY CLINTON LOST THE ELECTION - CHARLES SCHUMER

"When you lose to somebody who has a 40 percent popularity, you don’t blame other things — Comey, Russia — you blame yourself. So what did we do wrong? People didn’t know what we stood for, just that we were against Trump. And still believe that." - Senator Charles Schumer, Senior Senator from the State of New York and Democratic Minority Leader in the Senate. ICHEOKU says the statement spoke volume and it spoke for itself. Finally it seems the Democrats have finally turned the corner and are now ready to face up to their abysmal performance in the last presidential election by acknowledging that the American people indeed choose Trump over their Hillary Clinton. Thankfully, they will also now rest their "Russians Did It" cockamamie and find a message they can present to the people and for the good of the country.. Time to move the process forward is now as American people did not buy into the crap of a Russian collusion which they tried unsuccessfully to sell to them.

North Korea PUT ON NOTICE

NORTH KOREA  PUT ON NOTICE: DON'T PUSH ME.
"North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States. They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen. As I said, they will be met with the fire and fury and, frankly, power." - President Donald John Trump. ICHEOKU says the Michelin Tire midget at Pyongyang is definitely courting trouble and messing with the wrong man. He probably thinks Barack Obama the redline president is still in office; but unbeknownst to him there is a new sheriff in town and his name is Donald John Trump and he does not mess around. Hopefully China can rein in the little man before he commits mass suicide with his North Korean people.

NORTH KOREA: TOTAL ANNIHILATION NOW ON THE TABLE.

NORTH KOREA: TOTAL ANNIHILATION NOW ON THE TABLE.

ICHEOKU says once again the diminutive midget of Pyongyang has been advised to heed the resolution of the United Nations firm stand against his continuing provocations; and that the total wiping out of his North Korea is now an option should he force the hands of the United States of American military. In a statement by the Defense Secretary Jim Maddog Mattis over its latest nuclear test, the secretary said “Our commitment among the allies are ironclad. Any threat to the United States or its territories, including Guam, or our allies will be met with a massive military response, a response both effective and overwhelming. We are not looking to the total annihilation of a country, namely North Korea, but as I said, we have many options to do so.” ICHEOKU says does not really know the joker that guy has, but whatever it is will likely very soon be forced out. The world including ICHEOKU is waiting and watching.

BIAFRA EXIT FROM NIGERIA: A CALL TO DUTY

BIAFRA EXIT FROM NIGERIA: A CALL TO DUTY
ICHEOKU says the time has come and the time is now for the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra to be allowed to choose their self governance and exit from Nigeria going forward.. A referendum on the future of Biafra is a legitimate demand of the people and it is their right to so do. The people of the Nation of Biafra want to go their own way because of the hostilities from other member nations of Nigeria. Let the United Nations order a referendum and let the people decide their own Biafraexit.

PDJT ISSUES A VERDICT ON ISLAMIST TERRORISTS


"There can be no coexistence with this violence. There can be no tolerating it, no accepting it, no excusing it, and no ignoring it. Every time a terrorist murders an innocent person and falsely invokes the name of God, it should be an insult to every person of faith. Terrorists do not worship God; they worship death. If we do not act against this organized terror, then we know what will happen and what will be the end result. Terrorism's devastation of life will continue to spread, peaceful societies will become engulfed by violence, and the futures of many generations will be sadly squandered. If we do not stand in uniform condemnation of this killing, then not only will we be judged by our people, not only will we be judged by history, but we will be judged by God." - President Donald John Trump.


BBOB: BRING BACK OUR BIAFRA

ICHEOKU says it is worth fighting for, self determination and it is not a crime for a people to aspire for self governance. Indigenous Peoples of Biafra are marching forward and hopefully they will soon get to the promised land. Viva Biafra.
#BringBackOurBiafra.

WHAT REALLY MATTERS IN LIFE - STEVE JOBS

“I reached the pinnacle of success in the business world. In others’ eyes, my life is an epitome of success. However, aside from work, I have little joy. Non-stop pursuing of wealth will only turn a person into a twisted being, just like me. God gave us the senses to let us feel the love in everyone’s heart, not the illusions brought about by wealth. Memories precipitated by love is the only true riches which will follow you, accompany you, giving you strength and light to go on. The most expensive bed in the world is the sick bed. You can employ someone to drive the car for you, make money for you but you cannot have someone to bear sickness for you. Material things lost can be found. But there is one thing that can never be found when it is lost – Life. Treasure Love for your family, love for your spouse, love for your friends. Treat yourself well. Cherish others.” - SJ

BENUE STATE PEOPLE: SYMPTOMATIC OF THE BATTERED WIFE SYNDROME.

ICHEOKU says have tried without success to rationally understand the skewed love relationship between the House which Joseph Tarka built and the House of Mohammedan Othman Dan Fodio aka the Sokoto Caliphate. The only thing discernible and worth sifting out therefrom is that the people of Beune State are exhibiting symptoms of the battered wife syndrome, which sees an abused wife or even a woman, constantly attracted to her abusive husband or man and without any meaningful reason or explanation whatsoever. The allure is so irrational to comprehend that people wonder and question whether the woman drives some kind of high, a special dark pleasure, from being abused. Anyone who has ever experienced dominatrix "love" will understand that some people really likes it hot and rough. 

They will tell you that is the only way they actually feel expressed. It is a fact that psychologists have studied this syndrome over the many years and have also tried to psycho analyze such victims, but unfortunately no meaningful diagnosis has succeeded in explaining what makes such women do what they do. Sometimes, some of these victims end up being physically maimed for life and even killed, thus rendering any intervention ineffective or rather too little too late as an effective recourse. 

Several times have the people of the former Benue Plateau State now Benue State, Plateau State and Kogi State been provided the opportunity to free themselves from the strangulating choke-hold of the House of Othman Dan Fodio; but with each opportunity, saw them getting more ingratiated to the Fulani Sokoto Caliphate. Like with every second class mentality citizen, the appearance of being accepted by the people they admire and want to be like, is always a preferred option to truly being assertive and demanding to be respected. Joseph Tarka fought mightily to secure respect and statesmanship for his people of the Middle Belt and nearly succeeded until death took him away. 

Genocidal Yakubu Gowon led them back into the vice-grip control of the Caliphate during his reign as a neophyte illiterate Head of State and through a war of attrition which they waged against the people of Biafra. At the end of the war, the same Caliphate decided that a Middle Beltan was not good enough to be their leader and engineered a military coup that overthrew Yakubu Gowon and installed one of their own Muritala Mohammed, yet they remained loyal to their Caliphate masters with no questions asked.

There was a failed Middle Belt counter coup led by Bukar Sukar Dimpka which killed the Caliphate's Muritala Mohammed. The Caliphate responded with heavy hand and used the opportunity to nearly exterminate the entire population of the Middle Belt soldiers from their Fulani Nigerian army. Several officers including General Iliya Bisala as well as other rank and file from the Middle Belt were summarily slaughtered in mass executions. Even Gowon himself was marked for execution but the Berom coward hid in the United Kingdom until President Shehu Shagari granted him amnesty; admitted he still lives in fear of the Caliphate till today. During this purge, those Middle Belt soldiers who were deemed not connected to the coup and were not executed, were summarily dismissed from the Nigerian military. But instead of the Middle Belt people reexamining their association with their Caliphate, exclaimed their appreciation to the Caliphate, Master, master, you did nothing wrong, we are still loyal and we still love you. 

Some decades later, another Benue son, Gideon Orkar, became fed up with what was going on in Nigerian including in the Nigerian Army and tried to push those miscreants out of Nigeria. But unfortunately, his drunkenness did him in as a premature announcement of excision of some five North most States from the country, rallied soldiers from the five States, led by Sani Abacha, to fight back to reclaim their stay in Nigeria. The coup was quelled and when it was over, Orkar and his group of mainly Middle Belt Benue soldiers were blown to pieces with anti aircraft guns and sticks of dynamites festooned around their bodies like suicide bombers and whatever remained of their minced flesh were dissolved in sulphuric acid. But did the people of Benue State review their association following the callous fate which befell Gideon and co travelers, to see if it is still worthy of pursuing, working or still beneficial to them? ICHEOKU says no; instead they stuck to their love of their Caliphate masters and went even further and deeper in their romance; and now this ongoing slaughter of the people by the Caliphate's terrorists cattle herders. 

This is a fact of history and this is the fate which the people of the Middle Belt has continued to suffer in the hands of their supposed Sokoto Caliphate brothers; and for so long that you wonder when is enough finally going to be enough for this one-sided love affair to be re negotiated. They were marginalized, they were massacred, they were denied, they were deprived, they were rejected and they were not accepted as full members of the Caliphate, yet they kept on loving the Caliphate more and more. Their only request is to be loved in return but the Caliphate would have none of that.  They sang and they serenaded the vampirish Caliphate, which continuously grows fat on the blood and backs of Benue people; yet they are not welcomed. Why Benue people continues to sing the praises and doing the dirty laundry of the Sokoto Caliphate, despite what they have been thrown at is simply beyond any meaningful and rational comprehension, short of somebody trying too hard to be loved and accepted as bona fides Northerners. 

But why any people would continue to grovel in such perpetual servitude to another people, who continuously derides them, is beyond ICHEOKU; except to add it is the stuff lack of self esteem and pride in oneself is made of. To this end therefore, Benue State people cannot stop to amaze ICHEOKU with their lower caste disposition in the matter of their relationship with the Sokoto Caliphate. But why? What would Joseph Tarka and even Godwin Daboh say or do to what has become the fate of their people in their bromance with their brothers from the other end of the North.

As far as the Caliphate is concerned, the people of the Middle Belt remains part of the Southern infidels except for election purposes or when doing their bidding is concerned and some lowly servants of the North has to do the heavy lifting. It also does not matter to the Caliphate that the people of Benue State and/or the entire Middle Belt see themselves as Northerners, because in their tacit understanding, there are Northerners and there are other wanna be Northerners - the Northerners in name only. At every turn, those real Northerners never misses the opportunity to tell the "foreign" Northerners to know their place and to only speak when spoken to. Yet this second class treatment was accepted and accommodated by the people of Benue State and the greater Middle Belt and for so long. But why a people would be this so servile and groveling to another people is beyond any emancipated person's fathoming.


ICHEOKU says but acting as a devil's advocate, if as agreed that Benue State is neither Hausa nor Fulani, but a State located in the central geopolitical region of Nigeria and is not part of the Southeast and definitely not part of the Igbo ethnic extraction, and has a distinct language, genealogy, culture, tradition and ethnicity, what then is their correlation and affinity to the Sokoto Caliphate, one may ask? Their argument usually is that Benue State has no traceable cosmogony or any cultural affinity whatsoever to Igboland; but they fail to establish their nexus and consanguinity to the Fulani Sokoto Caliphate. The implication being that the people of Benue would rather manufacture nonsensical reasons to justify their alliance with a people so far away and so diverse in everything material particular with them; but would jump and protest any connection with some other people with whom they actually have some connection, including State boundary lines, inter-marriages and criss-crossing borders. 


This is the convoluting thing in the whole Benue State people idiocy of distancing themselves from Ndigbo Southeast, but readily grovels at a people  they do not share any homogeneous identifications with either, including boundary lines. However, all these notwithstanding, the real question remains why are Benue State people stuck in this abusive relationship with the Sokoto Caliphate and for this long? Why not just walk away and let the gaddam thing, where they are not treated fairly but so shabbily and so poorly, go puff. So put in another way, ICHEOKU says that Benue State people as well as the rest of the Middle Belt, by necessary implication, is somewhat incohoot in the fate which has befallen them. 

The people of Benue State are behaving like an abused wife who no one understands nor can explain why she keeps on going back to her abusive husband, and won't walk away or divorce him or feed him rat poison or take a Magnum to his cranium. Lastly, if according to Samuel Ortom, Benue State people have been under the tortuous pummeling of the Sokoto Caliphate Fulani since 1800, why are they still in bed with these their admitted traducers. But unfortunately, only Benue State people are the ones who can truly help themselves and free themselves from their bonded servitude to the Mohammedan House of Othman Dan Fodio. 

So, until then when they decides to do the needful, ICHEOKU advises the rest of Nigerians to please maintain a safe observation distance from them and let Benue people make up their mind as to the future course they want to navigate. Please do not let them use you in settling their brotherly dispute with their Northern brothers from the Sokoto Caliphate. Their leaders have time without number maintained that they are Northerners and that they belong to the Sokoto Caliphate as distant cousins. So it will be very unfortunate for anyone or tribe to give the two spouses reason to go to bed with you, discussing you as the reason they wanted to part ways. So until they seek the help and intervention of other Nigerians, especially the ever-ready busy-body only volunteer force in Nigeria, Ndigbo, please give them the much needed space to do some serious soul searching on their desired way forward.

SHITHOLE COUNTRIES: ACTUALLY AND ABSOLUTELY DO EXIST.

ICHEOKU says to enable us understand the the context better, it Is good to have a working definition of the term "shithole" country. A shithole country as one commentator opined, is a country whose leaders use and abuse their citizens rather than empower them, raise them up, protect them and give them opportunities to grow and prosper. 

It is a country whose leaders are not fair nor kind to the citizens and do not care about them or their welfare. It is a country where citizens rights are drastically infringed upon; where there is no due process rights and where citizens often lose their lives needlessly. It is a country which does not provide for its future generations and which does not give her citizens a decent chance at prosperity and a good quality of life. It is a country where there is no infrastructural development, lack of good water, accessibility, healthcare, basic food and other essentials of life including quality education, security and safety etc. 

So when the president called some countries shitholes, he meant that these countries should and need to put their act together and right the so many wrongs afflicting their citizens and people. This is the derivative from what the president said and any shithole country that does not like it should strive to remove the shithole prefix by doing better for themselves and country men and women. If anyone shithole country does not like being chastised, then let that country do something about it, in order to remove the reason for being chastised and thus render it moot. 

But it is unacceptable to be a beggarly nation and complain that you are being called out as a beggarly nation. If you are shamed into turning your fortunes around, then the chastisement worked; but you cannot be so needy in everything and still get mad simply because your benefactor said something to that effect. A beggar has no choice and if a tenant does not like the landlord or what the landlord said to him, the best revenge is to go build your own house and dispense with your landlord. This is a bitter truth medicine and this is the best answer in the circumstance and not all these hyperventilating. 

ICHEOKU is emphatic that what President Donald John Trump said is probably a long overdue clarion and wake-up call for those shithole countries to sit up, fix their countries and learn to take pride in themselves and countries. A child is expected to someday grow up; but when a country that got her independence over fifty years ago can still not provide basic things that make life livable such as water, roads, power, food etc, that country is literally stunted. It is about time these shithole countries take their medicine in order to get well and prosper and instead of being mad that they were called out, see such as a needed shot in the arm to work harder to defeat such opinion of them. 

If such a public shaming will force them to fold up their sleeves and get dirty in order to make their own respective countries GREAT AGAIN, translating them into a better place where nobody and none of their citizen wants to run away from, then such calling out is probably a most welcomed development. It is about time somebody confronted these failing countries with the gospel truth, as nobody ever runs away from a functioning, livable place. People only run away from disasters and such other none conducive environments which incommodes human existence. 

Therefore, what President Donald John Trump allegedly said concerning the merit of allowing migrants from "shithole" countries into the United States of America is factually in order. If it will help compel those countries, especially their leaders, into working harder to improve the fortunes of their countries and prevent their citizens from fleeing to the United States of America, then the objective would have been met. Query, if Americans did not fight and struggle hard to fix their own country, where would all those people from those shithole countries be running away to. 

ICHEOKU therefore says instead of crucifying the president for what he said, people from those "shithole" countries should accept the gauntlet and see it as a challenge to make their countries better and transform it into a much more livable place, rather than as an insult or curse. Those people should strive to prove President Donald John Trump wrong by either improving the quality of life in their societies or their people should stop flocking to the United States of America in protest to what the president said; or better still, to stay back in their own countries in order to prove to the president that their countries are not "shithole" countries. 

ICHEOKU says the extensive immigration policy of the United States of America is actually not helping those countries whose people are migrating to the United States. These are people who would have helped develop their own countries, but who have deserted them to come and enjoy the labors of others. The blood and sweat of the American people, who did not run away from their then own problems, but girded up, faced them squarely up and took time to laboriously make their own country much livable. By brain-draining and depriving their own countries of their much needed manpower, there is no manpower left behind in their countries to help build their own countries into a livable place. 

The same brain drain jeopardizes the critical mass necessary to help rally protests against their ineptitude governments and help compel their leaders to lead well. Such shithole countries leaders' predisposition is, why worry fixing their country and anyone who does not like it as it is, should take a hike to the ever welcoming United States of America. Then the attitude of their people migrating to the United States of America usually is, why bother with finding a way to pressure the government to fix what is broken when they can easily escape the dire condition back home by just running away to the United States of America; thus leaving their countries to wither away in utter desolation and lack of functionality and infrastructural development. 

ICHEOKU says a country's greatest resources is its people and any country suffering from acute depletion of their people through migration, especially the caliber regarded as brain-drain, is barren to say the least and will remain ever stunted to elaborate. Admitted it is hurtful, the feeling of being singled out and called a poop-pit hole, but sometimes truth is the best disinfectant, If such could touch a special place in those people's hearts to force them to doing better for their own countries, so be it. But where an Education Minister, for instance in a country like Nigeria, will not fix the country's education system because he or she could easily send his children to the United States of America for studies, then such country eminently qualifies as a "shithole" country. 

Ordinarily, were his or her children to be studying in Nigeria, he will have a stack in the project make Nigerian education great again and an added incentive to right the wrong that is a depleted and discredited education system, An education system where students do not have conducive environment to  study and lecturers are owed salaries and deprived of livable environment to impact knowledge. So, why do the job when a big brother America is there to cater to their children's need to acquire good education? As for the rest of their society that cannot afford the expensive United States of America education cost for their own children, too bad, tough luck. 

Also, when a country's president runs overseas for medical treatment and remains there for over 150 days, a privilege which over 95% of the citizens cannot afford, that is a shithole country. When a country does not have power and stays in darkness for more nights than it ever sees light, that is a shithole country. When in a country, terrorists Fulani cattle nomads indiscriminately slaughter innocent sleeping women and children, and the government of the country, headed by a Fulani, looks the other way, that is a shithole country. 

When an illiterate former tyrant, without even a First School Leaving Certificate, intimidates himself into the country's presidency, that is a shithole country. When in a country, placard carrying protesting innocent citizens are recklessly massacred by the government's army, that indeed smells like a shithole country. When in a country, a president of the country's Senate is an indicted criminally corrupt individual and he is still presiding over the Senate without resigning or temporarily stepping aside, that is what a shithole country really looks like. When in a country the Inspector General of Police is at liberty to sleep with any woman police official just because he can, that is a shithole country and the list goes on. 

ICHEOKU's only issue with what the president said is his delineation of such descriptive to only Haiti and African countries including Nigeria, because there are so many other shithole countries in the world, depending on whose definition is used and the prevailing paradigm employed. In America for instance, those who are down and out on their luck, including millions of homeless, drug and alcohol addicts, could see themselves trapped in a "shithole" country. Ditto will those who ran afoul of the law, as well as those who were wrongly convicted and incarcerated; and who will spend the rest of their lives in tiny prison cells, swear that America is a "shithole" country because of their fate. Further, some people looking from the outside into America might also be forced to conclude that death sentences and executions as practiced in America smacks of a "shithole" country practice. 

So America could, in some peoples' eyes and estimation, somewhat fit into this description of a "shithole" country, depending on who you ask. To the American who lives in the economically desolate Appalachian mountain range including some parts of West Virginia, as well as economically deprived Detroit and the killing fields of Southside Chicago, they might see themselves as trapped in a "shithole" country. Yes indeed, some Americans who live in certain necks of the wood in the country have it worse than people who live in some of those now identified shithole countries of Africa and Haiti. 

Those Americans who lived through, as well as those who died, during the horrors of Hurricane Katrina, especially in New Orleans 9th Ward, who did not have luck with being rescued, would probably swear that they lived in a shitlhole country. Those Americans who were residents of Flint Michigan during the water crisis could also possibly say that they lived in a shithole country as the crisis unfolded. When you add victims of the opiates crisis and drugs ravaging America and those crackheads and junkies sprawling on the streets of major cities in America, you will get more of those Americans who strongly feel that their country is a shithole country as well. 

ICHEOKU is emphatic that every country has their own problems and issues that could make them a shithole country, admitted that they are all not of the same severity across the board. Throughout the world exist countries that will perfectly fit and so easily be subsumed into a shithole country defined, if seen through the lenses of those who are being shafted and left under the economic ladder and their citizens who are down and out and whose cases are not salvageable. Yes, the colored lens is good, but sometimes it does not capture the whole picture and yes, it depends on who is doing the judging and what indices are being used. 

In Venezuela for example, citizens cannot even find toilet papers to wipe their behind and you wonder why have a shit hole when you cannot even use it hygienically? So, if you cannot find tissue papers to use after doing your business, doesn't that push Venezuela to the top of the totem pole of shithole countries. Then factor in countries that repress their citizens including Russia, China, North Korea, Iran etc and their unfortunate citizen victims will shout at the top of their lungs that they live in a shithole country. Saudi Arabia which still carries out beheading and where ancient religious practices still dominate her citizens affairs is definitely another such shithole country, especially for those at the end of the pointed tip of the spear in the Kingdom. Mexico also qualifies as a shithole country, depending on whether one is interviewing those victims of drug war gone awry. 

So the list of "shithole" countries is not easily exhaustible as every country has its own dark underbelly spots and areas which will somewhat somehow make them eligible for that inglorious list. This is the only downside from what President Donald John Trump said, because he limited his observation to just the African continent and black dominated Haiti. Every country, without exception or rather negligible few exceptions, still have a lot of work to do in aspiring to really and truly become a paradise on earth. So until mission accomplished, we all can only pray to die someday and still be in the good books to make heaven in order to experience bliss, because there is no paradise anywhere on this planet earth; and America is certainly not one, the hyped grandiosity notwithstanding. 

But the overhyped righteous indignation of the Democrats and their liberal media hordes which have taken the narrative into a near absurdity is understandable. These are Trump hating lynch mob, who have been looking for something and anything with which to crucify President Donald John Trump since their last November 8th, 2006 election loss. So their pretentiousness is a given and ICHEOKU and Americans are not fazed nor deterred. Former President Barack Obama who so "loved" Africa and never called Africans out publicly as a shithole continent did more damage to Africa than help them. He murdered African King Moummar Gaddafi for no reason and threw Libya into a continental chaos  which has since spiraled out of control into anarchy, where slavery has now been reborn and human beings are being sold off into slavery on auction blocks and purchased as chattels. 

The same African loving Obama, boycotted the largest concentration of black people in the world, the country of Nigeria; and refused to visit it throughout his eight long years in office. Yes indeed, Barack Obama "loved" Africa so much and you ask yourself how did he translate this "love" into anything tangible and meaningful to and for Africans? ICHEOKU says Barack Hussein Obama did not do jack for the "shithole" Africa, despised the professed "love", other than try to export homosexuality carte blanc to the African continent, period. Please give ICHEOKU harsh words than cruelty, anytime, any day. 

So what is it exactly that people are talking about, other than that a bold, brash and fearless President Donald John Trump, who does not suffer fools lightly, bravely put into words what millions of others regularly muse about. So what if those countries are called out for what they are; if they don't like it, they should do something about it or otherwise hush. 

Simply put, the snitching Democratic Senator Durbin was out to get President Donald John Trump, otherwise why leak what was said in the heat of passion during a private conversation? It is the same lack of trust which has nearly stalled governing in America where a chief executive cannot have the assured confidences of a top legislator who was invited to hash out some matters of State. This is atypical of a political scoundrel who was out to ensnare the president for purposes of gaining some political advantage and readily drove his Brutus dagger at the the slightest opportunity; but luckily and unlike Julius Caesar, the president survived and will thrive. The other good news is that the Teflon President have survived far worse things that were thrown at him and will also ride out the latest tempest in a tea cup. 

Their "Fire and Fury" hit job has flamed out without the anticipated meltdown; and now it is back to their worn out regurgitate that the president is a racist. ICHEOKU says but who is not a racist in America, as well as the entire world? So, why single out the president to brand him one or is what he said worse than Queen Crooked Hillary Clinton calling black American males Super Predators? Is Obama's "clinging to their guns and religion" comment any better and more desirable and palatable? Like Jesus said, he who is without sin should cast the first stone, but unfortunately, liberalism and Godism are two polar opposites, otherwise they would have known better. Happily though, such hatchet job has been repeatedly carried out previously with the president still standing and this dust raised by the "shithole" countries comment will equally blow over by the weekend. 

As has been revealed, this shows that politicians are indeed contrived. Some pro immigration senators went to the president to seek his approval for an immigration bill proposal which did not meet the president's stated objective of providing funds to build the wall and end chain migration. The president somewhat lost his cool, using some tough words as he turned them down. As a revenge, one of them, Democratic Senator Durbin invented a story of the president said this and that. 

But these traducers are again wasting their time because the American people who are with the president far outnumber them. They can try all they want and invent and manufacture accusations upon accusations, but the American people's support for their president will never wane nor flounder; and they far outweigh all the conspiracies put together against the president. They will re-elect their President Donald John Trump come 2020 because they see in him an American champion and cheerleader in chief extra-ordinaire, whose love for country is feverishly passionate. They love him dearly and Wall Street is responding in kind as well as jobs which are beginning to move back to the United States of America. Americans will never desert such a fighting president, who is studiously fighting for their cause. 

Finally, instead of anyone or country chastising President Donald John Trump for what was said, they should see it as a moment of truth, a time for reflection, a time for the taking of stock, to review their affairs and introspect on what they have been doing wrongly which  has led to the continuing exodus of their people to America and other European and Asian countries. They should ask themselves why they still have shitholes in their countries when the rest of the world have since adapted plumbed and flushing toilets. 

They should try to figure out why their "shithole" countries are not functional? They should try and find an answer as to why things are not running optimally and as they should in their shithole countries? They should ask themselves why things are not well ordered and why there is no law and order in their shithole countries? They should introspect on why their shithole countries do not have necessary infrastructures and cannot provide employment opportunities and good standard of living for their citizens. In short, those shithole countries should find out why their citizens are running away from their shithole countries. 

These are the questions that need to be answered and not this current hyperventilation over what the President Donald John Trump allegedly said. Former British Prime Minister David Cameron once called Nigeria a "fantastically corrupt country", did the heavens fall? Dick Cheney once told Patrick Leheay to go fuck himself, did the heavens fall? There is a litany of such public officials outburst, a result of frustrations of their offices, which are bogged down by snail fashion inactivity due to no fault of their own. 

For a former Chief Executive like President Donald John Trump, who is used to getting things done, it must be a daunting task not to be allowed the free hand to do the things he needs to do in his march to make American Great Again. Such slowing down, which is somewhat deliberate partisan ploy, is rubbing the president wrongly. ICHEOKU certainly feels the president's frustrations and this possibly triggered his blowing off his casket. The volcano sometimes erupts after much internal combustive smoldering, so every human being has their point of no return, at which they will show their other side. But does this make them bad person, ICHEOKU says I don't think so; and it does not make President Donald John Trump a bad person nor more racist than any other American, regardless.

MICHAEL WOLFE: A LYING MAKE IT UP AS HE GOES SCOUNDREL.

“Many of the accounts of what has happened in the Trump White House are in conflict with one another; many, in Trumpian fashion, are baldly untrue. These conflicts, and that looseness with the truth, if not with reality itself, are an elemental thread of the book. Sometimes I have let the players offer their versions, in turn allowing the reader to judge them. In other instances I have, through a consistency in the accounts and through sources I have come to trust, settled on a version of events I believe to be true.” - Michael Wolff, page 10, Fire and Fury - the book of fantasy and innuendoes, a hogwash bunkum penned to con readers out of their hard earned money.

OPRAH WINFREY 2020: ONLY IN HER DREAM.

ICHEOKU says lunacy is doing the same thing over and over again while expecting different results. So once again has the Hollywood incestuous establishment gone agog and giddy that television talkshow personality, Winfrey Oprah, will be the liberals answer to MAGA's President Donald John Trump come 2020. But a trial will convince them, may be for the final last time, that they are indeed the minority Americans; and that what the Obamas, Joe Biden and the Clintons alongside the media hordes of America, could not together achieve, Oprah will but also labor in vain. 

White Americans are still in the comfortable majority in America and they seemingly have made a collective survival decision never again to toy with the destiny of their beloved homeland, by farming out the presidency to a minority, who is not fully vested in heart, body and spirit in the America ideals of their forefathers. But for this decision, then candidate Queen Crooked Hillary Clinton would have picked black Senator Cory Booker to be her vice presidential candidate; but she will not have any of that nor allow another black person within the corridors of power. The Clintons are as white American as anyone can get and they are fully vested in this agenda of keeping America as is; an America where who is in charge and in authority will not be in doubt nor questionable; and they will work to keep it so, regardless of the platitudes and facade they put up publicly because of political expediency. 

Yes, if Oprah dares, she will find out that her limitations are certain and that her show tanking following her endorsement of Barack Obama in 2008 is a testament of what Americans can tolerate of her. Yes indeed, the abrupt end of her Oprah Show on ABC was not for no reason as her ratings and viewership dropped like a freely falling stone, following that identification of her blackness by endorsing Barack Obama. 

ICHEOKU says so what if her name is Oprah Winfrey and so what if she once dominated the television air time gone by. That was then and this is now; and yes, Oprah Winfrey's magic is more of a nostalgia than a continuing future continuity. As intimated above, ICHEOKU is emphatic that a minority will never be elected American president again; at least not in the next following few decades. Worse come to worse, immigration laws will be drastically changed and citizenships revoked to make that frightful end impossible to ever berth again. This resolve is across the broader spectrum of white people, irrespective of their gender biases, age, religion, as well as party identifications. The bottom line is their survival as a people and they will do whatever it takes to still retain America, which they see as their own and the last remaining real bastion and center of excellence throughout the world and never to be taken away from their control. 

ICHEOKU says white Americans will fight to preserve their control of the only still remaining white "enclave" which political correctness has not totally subdued and where Islamists incursion is still held at bay, at least for the most part and not a ten thousand black Oprahs can change this paradigm. She will get her feminists liberated women's vote including large percentage of black women plus other television watching women, including some white women. She will probably also get a large of black males and plus some other males, including those hooked on something white males. But the rest of the plurality of Americans will neither vote for nor tolerate her as president; especially the remaining macho males of America who constantly see the erosion of masculinity in America which is largely orchestrated by and championed by a liberated Winfrey Oprah. 

But the good news is that Oprah Winfrey is smart enough and will know not to push her luck too far and will not run. But if she dares or is lured by the ovation of the moment to challenge the president come 2020, she will suffer a very humiliating defeat, the like of which no presidential candidate has ever had to endure before. She will not be elected president of the United States of America, period. She could be elected governor or Senator of the State of Illinois, but definitely will not win a nation-wide presidential election. But the druggies of Hollywood are spasmodic with excitement in their usual misconception, thinking that because they say so, it is so; and that because they think their Oprah will beat President Donald John Trump, the whole country will chorus Amen and act on it. But ICHEOKU says not so fast Hollywood and to curb their enthusiasm because a President Winfrey Oprah will never morph into a reality. Just a drug induced wishful dream. 

America will never elect black Winfrey Oprah president; especially not too soon following the disaster that was the other black president Barack Hussein Obama, who scared them shitless, trying to destroy America by his attempted make over of America. At most, she could win the traditional Democratic blue States of California and New York as Democrats usually always win; but that will not be enough to secure her the White House as Queen Crooked Hillary Clinton painfully found out last November. She will never win Texas, Georgia, Florida, Pennsylvania and any of the election swaying States in the union. 

She is a woman and she is black and she has rattled the cage of White people and they will never trust her with power over them. Her childhood story of being raped by her father and the fact that she is not married, not well educated and is an acute feminist extraordinaire are all negative points that will weigh against her candidacy. Therefore, in the battle of 2020 between President Donald John Trump and Oprah Winfrey, the president will roundly defeat her and as Senator Marco Rubio rightly pointed out, entertainment and winning the presidency are two different adventures because as candidate are forced to take a particular position on issues, friendship and admiration are lost and gained. Anyway, ICHEOKU appreciates Oprah Winfrey and the many things she has accomplished in her life; but advises her not to even think about it.

STEVE BANNON: BUT WHY?

ICHEOKU says ordinarily, would have thought that one was dreaming a nightmarish scenario of a Steve Bannon's stab of President Donald John Trump. It definitely also sounded like a tale from the moonlight, except that it is true.  It is therefore condemnable that such a trusted advisor could turn out to be the Et tu Brute of the president. The reality of what just happened, the betrayal of the president by one of his closest confidants and chairman of his presidential campaign, Steve Bannon, is the mother of all betrayals and conspiracies ever seen since the November 8th 2016 election victory of the president. 

What a great betrayal, begging the question, does anyone have a friend in Washington DC; the reason many presidents take solace in dogs as the only friend that is trustworthy and which they can really trust without fear of being betrayed. ICHEOKU says if Steve Bannon could do this to President Donald John Trump, imagine what Julius Caesar must have felt when he turned around and saw Brutus drawing out his dagger from the stab which he had inflicted upon him. Imagine what our Lord and Master Jesus Christ felt when he learnt who his betrayer was, a trusted disciple Judas Iscariot. Thomas Sankara of Burkina Faso felt same upon learning that his closest friend Blaise Campore has moved the forces against him. The same reason Nigeria's Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida summarily executed Mamman Vasta upon learning that he was planning a military putsch against his government. ICHEOKU says such must be the most painful thing to happen to anyone; an experience no human being alive and not the president, who is rightly incensed, should ever have to live to behold. 

Steven Bannon finally lived the part of his look - a disgruntled, disheveled and abandoned old lady with straggly hair, fat and dirty, bidding his time and waiting to strike a vengeance. A Mister Kiss and Tell; and you wonder, if Steven Bannon could be this wicked and mean, imagine what other things he must probably have been or is currently up to. Simply put, he is creepy, conceited and evil; certainly not the stuff warriors are made of. Steven Bannon has proved that he was not the warrior he had all along pretended to be; but a green snake in a green grass and he struck when he taught maximum damage would be inflicted on the president and you wonder why? Could Steve Bannon's attempted resurrection to relevance with the Alabama Senatorial election which went belly up, have been the reason? An election in which he first went up against the president's candidate, a tell tale sign of this treachery; but which he bungled and lost woefully and now this? Could this be his last remaining Holy Mary pass into relevance. 

ICHEOKU says not so fast Steve as he has now dug himself deeper into a cold doldrums of irrelevance. Steve Bannon leaked White House information as the president's political advisor and was forgiven. Steve Bannon went up against the president's candidate for Alabama senate seat and was forgiven; but this final betrayal is it. Steve Bannon cannot and can never be forgiven of this latest Fire and Fury betrayal. Steve Bannon has now become the number one pariah in America as neither the left nor the right nor the outsiders will henceforth accept him as bona fides. ICHEOKU says who in his right thinking mind will want to have anything again to do with such ratty, dirty, fat slob, who cannot even manage his personal hygiene properly. ICHEOKU says does not know about you, but snitches and betrayers deserve nothing short of public lynching and this particular sloppy slob, Steve Bannon, deserves every poisoned dart being and which will be thrown at him.

The worst type of enemy is the enemy within and which is masquerading as a friend, lurking and lying in wait just for an opportunity to creep close enough to within a striking distance of your jugular vein. Disgruntled is not sufficient to qualify Steve Bannon regarding what just happened. What he did is the real treachery and not the meeting which held inside Trump Towers. How dare he be this callous and brutal to a man who took him in and made him a national figure; only to so disappointingly watch his trust evaporate into the thin air by such crass and asinine betrayal of the worst kind. Where was Steve Bannon's loyalty; where was Steve Bannon's trust; both of which he totally and completely shredded into microscopic smithereens when he threw them out of the window of a 30,000 feet high altitude flying jet. 

ICHEOKU says does not care about what happened that pushed him; nor gives a damn about what could have incensed Steve Bannon into such a wanton act of cruelty; but to drive a knife into President Donald John Trump, especially at this time of him against the entire world, is simply put, unpardonable. ICHEOKU says with a friend like Steve Bannon, no one needs an enemy; not President Donald John Trump. Not even the Queen Crooked Hillary Clinton's dart was this poisonous and you wonder what could make a man to be so this wicked. First it was Judas Iscariot and Jesus; then came Brutus and Julius Caesar and now this dirty looking, haggardly and possibly smelly Steve Bannon, whose personal hygiene is definitely suspect. What made him commit this level of harakiri, disemboweling himself before Americans. Now he will succeed in driving President Donald John Trump farther away and closer to the swampy Washington establishment which he was trying to drain, thinking that he has the support and loyalty of Steve Bannon's types, only to now suffer such heartbreaking betrayal. 

Pathetic is not enough to describe Steve Bannon and if he has any candor left in him, he should pick up a magnum and blow his brains out in disgrace. Which hell will accommodate him and which friends does he have left or think will still want to have him around as a friend, after what he did to President Donald John Trump. ICHEOKU says Steve Bannon did not do right; and yes, the president was right that Steven Bannon lost his mind the day he was disgracefully fired from his White House job. A  gig which he should not have been hired in the first place, but for a president who took a now regrettable risk, bringing him so close to the seat of power and to him; and now this. What a pitiful human debris this particular Steve Bannon is. Hopefully, his wife will walk away from him, assuming he has a wife as no modern lady would stand a man looking that sloppy and so unkempt as a partner. Steve Bannon should go and hide his face in Hades, never to be seen again; at least as long as Team MAGA lasts. Pitiful.

HAPPY NEW YEAR: 2018 IS HERE, HURRAY !

ICHEOKU says hope the New Year met you in good spirit, revved up and ready to go. So grab with both hands all that it brings along with it. All the best. God bless. Cheers.

PATRICE NGANANG: BANISHED FROM CAMEROON.

Patrice Nganang, a dual Cameroon and American citizen, professor of literature and activist, was arrested during a trip to his motherland Cameroon by Cameroonian government. He was detained for several weeks, then released and banished; and asked never to come back to Cameroon. 

ICHEOKU says Africa is suffering a continent-wide political dysmenorrhea and in Cameroon sits one of the longest reigning head of government, a tin-god dictator called Paul Biya, who has been in government since 1984. He admits of no opposition nor criticism and you wonder what will it eventually take Africans to finally liberate themselves from their internal colonialists. How a single person will be ruling a country for over three decades is simply mind boggling. Away with despotism; chase Paul Biya away. What is the Cameroonian military waiting for to give Paul Biya the Robert Mugabe treatment? Do it now.

BUHARI'S PERFORMANCE OR LACK THEREOF: THE JOKE IS ON NIGERIANS.

ICHEOKU says what were they thinking when they voted him president of Nigeria in the first place. An ascetic who literally has nothing to show for as great accomplishments, other than his mercurial rise to the top in the Nigeria army through a favoritism based quota system; but was considered by Nigerians as their then now messiah and the man who will indeed Make Nigeria Great Again. ICHEOKU says really? 

ICHEOKU says it is only a jaundiced mind, which has been brainwashed beyond redemption, by those 419 miracles of riches Business Center Churches, who in the usual expectation of miracles, would have and indeed had expected a spectacular feat by President Muhammadu Buhari's presidency. Unfortunately, Nigeria is brimming with such mind-numb robots and they voted for him; only to now pretend that they voted for something else other than the man presently in Aso Rock and dishing out his meanness and cluelessness on the country. Otherwise, there were no indications that he was going to be a good president, as there were no prior history of great achievement nor a road traveled by him before, to suggest or point to a destination within sight, where a President Muhammadu Buhari would creditably take Nigeria to. But hopeless Nigerian romantics, fantasized along, regardless. 

ICHEOKU is not disappointed at President Muhammadu Buhari's performance so far because nothing wonderfully good was ever expected of him or from his government. Rather, such spectacular performance by him would have been the real rude shock; and not that a man who has no resume`of storied accomplishments did in fact not disappoint those who really knew him and knew exactly what was coming down the pike when Nigeria took that poison pill and elected him into office. Muhammadu Buhari has been around for quite some time that he is somewhat a fixture in the Nigerian political firmament. As a soldier, he was promoted rapidly through the ranks and for no apparent reason other than being from the Northwestern Fulani catchment area. As Governor of North Central State, he has nothing to show for as achievements; ditto his stay as Nigeria's Minister of Petroleum, right through to when he became Head of State and then chairman of the Petroleum Trust Fund. 

Why Nigerians decided to elect him president is not clear; except that they wanted to spite the face and cut off the nose in the process; and today the whole country is bleeding for that costly but otherwise avoidable mistake. So if he did not achieve much when he was younger and more vibrant; how any thinking person or people expected him to do much now that youth is no longer his companion is the surprise in the whole matter. No Nigerian was forced to vote for Buhari as their president in 2015 and he had on three previous occasions offered himself to Nigerians for the office but was resoundingly rejected each time. It was not until Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu pulled a fast one on Nigerians, sort of a 419 move, by assuring Nigerians that Muhammadu Buhari is now a "Converted Democrat" and that he will hold his feet to the fire of performance that Nigerians bought the snake oil which Tinubu sold them. 

Today, it is all regrets galore and a lot of buyer's remorse as a forlorn fog has since enveloped the country with people begging for 2019 to speedily come by so that they can, hopefully, jettison him from Aso Rock. But not too fast Nigerians, as the man in Aso Rock does not have any plans to leave nor would he allow Nigerians to stampede him out of the seat of power. It may not be that easy, admitted they can try as their are constitutionally empowered to do. 

Nigerians were led to believe that an old dog was capable of learning new tricks; and that the leopard can change its spots and they trooped out and voted for President Muhammadu Buhari during the last election; only to now turn around to complain that he has not kept his promises nor performed creditably well. ICHEOKU says really; and on what track records of his was this their great expectation base on? It is indeed those Nigerians who had expected great performance and who are now expressing disappointment in the mediocre performance of President Muhammadu Buhari who themselves need to have their heads examined. Their neurons must not have been firing well for them to have expected some productivity from a known real clueless one, who has nothing to his credit prior to this presidency to warrant such expectation. 

It is indeed laughable that any Nigerian expected President Muhammadu Buhari to be the best president Nigeria ever had or could have. It is the stuff delirium is made of; requiring the suspension of disbelief to really believe that anyone ever arrived at such a conclusion that a President Muhammdu Buhari was ever going to accomplish much. 

ICHEOKU says trying to understand an illiterate running a government is akin to trying to understand why an illiterate housewife or even a husband for that matter, is always contentious and intolerant of certain social behaviors that is ordinarily tolerated and acceptable within any given set up. Such people do not understand logic or nuances; nor are they equipped with the capacity to engage in clear thought and critical thinking. Big picture issues is not their strongest suit either and they greatly labor through sourced information and explanations. They lack vision and foresight; and worse of, their penchant to micro manage everything is legendary. They are not self assured, hence they are always suspicious of individuals around them and in their attempt to prove themselves, they end up over doing things. They easily reject wise counsel and are averse to people who know better than them being around them. They are reactionary and their inferiority complex often times make them obstinate to a fault, such that they often times discard proven solutions rather than be seen as taking instructions from some other party. They are also mean; extremely despotic and vicious. Their level of distrust of others is such that nobody dare have a contrary opinion around them. 

President Muhammadu Buhari is all the above, an illiterate, a certificate-less one for that matter. In the tier of illiteracy, President Muhammadu Buhari is a bottom dweller and it shows in a Nigeria that is today, totally subdued and laboring under a heavy load of mismanagement and bad governance. But Nigerians, instead of trying to proactively correct their Buhari mistake, having identified the root cause of his incompetence as illiteracy, are strangely rooting for yet another illiterate Abubakar Atiku and you wonder what would it take for Nigerians to learn their lesson. This is the strangest of the strangeness now unfolding in Nigeria that Nigerians are in fact trying to replace the pet dog with a pet monkey and you ask yourself are they not both four legged pets. ICHEOKU calls it the real madness which is unfolding in Nigeria presently, the feverish megalomania associated with an Abubakar Atiku being an alternative to Muhammadu Buhari. ICHEOKU says this is the height of great unthinkingness and it shows that Nigerians are impervious to correction and are too obstinate to learn from their past mistakes. 

The same people who foist the mediocrity that is President Muhammadu Buhari on themselves, are once again lining up behind another certificate-less man, Abubakar Atiku; and you wonder what is the difference in their minds between six and a half dozen. What is the guiding philosophy of a people, who repeatedly do the same thing over and over again, while expecting an alternate result? How else does any sane person explain Nigerians or is there something inherently wrong in their DNA that make them to self immolate; such that each and every time they have the opportunity to help themselves make things better, they end up self destructing. Madness could not have any better definition, outside the McNaughton's Rule, than what Nigerians perpetually and repeatedly bring upon themselves. How and why do they do it, nobody knows. But anyone clinging to an Atiku's presidency is part of the problem with Nigeria and such person needs to cease and desist henceforth from such errancy. If Nigeria ever stands a chance at greatness or indeed even survival, Abubakar Atiku is definitely not the vehicle to get us there. 

ICHEOKU maintains that the only reason President Muhammadu Buhari is a sub-par performer is that his brain is not developed enough to engage in critical and logical thinking; and peradventure have some understanding of principles of macro economics which drives the global economy. He is apparently constrained and indeed confined and confounded by some inherent factors associated with an undeveloped mind. He cannot think outside the box and he is afraid of venturing outside his well established comfort zone. He drives some level of security being inside his familiar territory and therefore being heavily holed in, finds it extremely difficult to venture outside his given set of primitive parameters.  But unfortunately for Buhari and his Nigeria, the rest of the world has since moved on from and away from the mindset which still philosophizes about Western Germany. It is his immersion in Stone Age principles of economic management and political governance that makes President Muhammadu Buhari to still want to micro manage Nigeria. 

The result is the noticeable stagnation in every facet of the country, because what worked in the 1980s does not, no longer works and cannot work in the 21st century 2015 to date. This is the crux of the matter, the mindset which is driving Nigeria with antiquated doctrines and principles, which is so stale and no longer applicable nor  compatible with modern economics management. The reason Nigerians are aghast at what their country has become under an inept leadership of a mediocrity known as President Muhammadu Buhari. As a matter of fact, the joke is actually on those Nigerians who were expecting water from a rock and good yield from a dry arid land; and who were expectant that a man with Buhari's sketchy track record of performance was going to suddenly transform into a great performer overnight. His lack of ability and capability was obvious before the election and right from day one has not changed; and the warning lights were everywhere solid red. But unfortunately, a people who have since disengaged their critical thinking and analytical prowess, and now believes in miracles of all kinds, thought otherwise; and it has come to bite them bigly. 

A society that has refused to be proactive in its affairs, but repeatedly engages in fire brigade approach of after the fact reaction to problem solving, can only have itself to blame for the hand being dealt them by repeated clueless and incompetent governments; that has somewhat become the curse of the Nigeria. Nigerians have as a matter of practice refuses to bolt the barn door to prevent the bull from escaping; but would rather chase it after it has escaped and you wonder why. Yes, many of them ignored the known incompetence and callousness of President Muhammadu Buhari and their hatred for the coward of Otuoke spurred them on and now look who is crying blue murder. ICHEOKU says not so fast Nigerians, because baring any intervention from the On High, President Muhammadu Buhari will remain president for the next five years until 2023. That will be a five long years for Nigerians to purify themselves of their finicky and lackadaisical attitude and learn to become proactive in driving their common destiny to an end which they indeed truly want and desire. 

So instead of complaining and whining about President Buhari's below par performance or overall lack of performance, let those Nigerians who were implicit in bringing about the Buhari presidency take a page from King David and put on sack clothes, throw some ashes  upon themselves and mourn their decision which brought about the current state of affair in Nigeria where nothing is literary working. Even the fact that Muhammadu Buhari was a brutal dictator would have been sufficient to disqualify him were Nigerians a conscionable people and in a working democracy. But not with a people who were bent on torpedoing any semblance of order or rightness which is headed their way. ICHEOKU actually finds it extremely apoplectic that some Nigerians are complaining about President Muhammadu Buhari's continuing callousness and lack of performance and had expected differently. What a display of riveting delusion to think or rather expect that a fully grown, nearly senile grandfather was capable of turning tricks. What a joke of a people, on a people and by a people. Pitiful Nigerians.

THE HUMAN SIDE OF BUHARI: A DOCUMENTARY OF ABSURDITY.

ICHEOKU says Nigerian Television Authority (NTA) in fact did President Muhammadu Buhari a great disservice with their documentary - The Human Side of President Muhammadu Buhari, a tacit admission that the man who Nigerians elected their president is in actuality a half human and a half beast. The necessary implication being that the president rightly earned his sobriquet and moniker, the Dracula of Daura; otherwise why did they bother trying to prove that the president is a human being or that part of him is actually human. This is the crossroads where the Nigerian Television Authority has, by no intentional fault of their own, successfully placed the president and thus  confirming what many had suspected for so many years that the man in occupation of Aso Rock is in fact a beast and at best an unfeeling bloody tyrant. 

This now explains without any scintilla of doubt whatsoever the president's harsh treatment of Nigerians, many of who he has murdered for simply engaging in placards carrying peaceful protests. ICHEOKU is emphatic that only animals or rather beasts that consume their own; otherwise how could anyone explain the easiness with which President Muhammdu Buhari orders his armed bandits in uniforms to continuously, violently, repress all manners of freedoms in Nigeria, including peaceful protests. How any president and his armed security agencies, which are supposed to protect the country's  citizens, but randomly turn the muzzle of the guns at them is quite beyond any reasonable fathoming. 

But good enough, the Nigerian Television Authority has done their documentary and they rightly titled it "The Human side of President Muhammdu Buhari"; the implication being that those complaining Nigerians have all along been right that the president has a beastly side; which many have seen and been visited with since the inception of his presidency. Hopefully, the Nigerian Television Authority will someday see it fit to completely showcase the president, by also doing another documentary covering the opposite side of his human side. 

This new documentary should cover the president's beastly side, the side which makes him want to spill the blood of Nigerians, his fellow citizens, for whom he was elected to protect and provide for. It shall also showcase his selective deafness to cries of citizens of Nigeria  under the spell of acute hardship and want. It shall also showcase his overthrowing of a democratically elected President Shehu Shagari's government and all the infra digs he committed following that 1983 putsch. This will help Nigerians as well as possibly any other interested parties worldwide to have a complete picture of the man who has become Nigerians nemesis in chief; except for his few Fulani tribal people to whom he has practically handed over every bounty in Nigeria. So, Nigerian Television Authority, ICHEOKU says when is the beastly side of President Muhammad Buhari documentary going to hit the screen? A mutant of some sort; a humanoid Chinese Zhulong and a character out of Greek mythology and you wonder why Nigeria has gone under under his watch. So, Nigeria Television Authority, ICHEOKU says to do it now.

HAPPY 117TH BIRTHDAY KOINANGE

HAPPY 117TH BIRTHDAY KOINANGE

ICHEOKU says happy birthday to Elizabeth Gathoni Koinange of Kenya who celebrated her 117th birthday recently. Married into a polygamy, her only advise for up and coming would be wives is DON'T DO IT. According to her, polygamy sucks and it is inhuman for a wife to take turns with other wives to be with their husband. Indeed very humiliating and Nigeria's Abubakar Atiku is a polygamist. Anyway, ICHEOKU wishes Elizabeth many more happy celebrations and she looks good for her century plus age. Congratulations.

TAX REFORM BILL SIGNED INTO LAW.

ICHEOKU says what a huge legislative win by the president who seemed to have saved the best for last, as he ended the year 2017 with a such a big feat, signing the Tax Reform Bill into law. Once again, a man who has become known as a promise keeper has again kept his election campaign promise to reform America's Tax Law. 

ICHEOKU says congratulations to President Donald John Trump for again following through with a promise made, now become a promise kept. The $1.5 trillion tax-cut legislation is a major victory for the president and marks the first major reform in American tax law in over three decades. What a win for Mr President and for a do-nothing Congress which has now finally did something. Way to go; and may that be the beginning of many things to come and become mission accomplished under the presidency of President Donald John Trump and the Republican controlled Congress. Merry Christmas America.

UNITED NATIONS VOTE: WE DON'T CARE - AMERICA

"This resolution is an unproductive attempt to isolate us for a decision that was our sovereign right to make. The United States will remember this day when it was singled out in the United Nations for the act of exercising our sovereignty. We will remember it when we are called upon once again to make the world's largest contribution to the United Nations. 

And we will remember when so many countries come calling on us, as they so often do, to pay even more and to use our influence for their benefit. America will put our embassy in Jerusalem. No vote in the United Nations will make any difference on that. It is what the American people want us to do. This vote will make a difference only as to how America looks at the UN, and how we look at countries who disrespect us at the UN." - Nikki Haley, United States ambassador to the United Nations.
